Chevrolet Recalls 2013 Malibu Eco for Airbag Deployment Issue
Chevrolet has announced
a recall on the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco model due to a potential problem with a sensor in the airbag assembly. The issue with the sensor poses the potential that the airbag might employee unexpectedly. In instances where the brakes are applied abruptly the vehicle sensing and diagnostic module could possibly reset itself.
If the resetting process was to take place before an abrupt turn, the vehicle sensors could possibly mistake the turn as a rollover and deploy the roof rail airbags. I've seen videos online of the Chevrolet Camaro at a drift event where the sensors mistakenly thought the car was rolling over and deployed airbags. The Malibu models covered in the recall were built between October 24, 2011 and March 31 of 2012. 4304 units are covered in recall and a campaign will start on June 1.
