    GM recalls model year 2016-2018 Chevrolet Malibus

    The front passenger airbag may not deploy properly

    General Motors is recalling 66 model year 2016-2018 Chevrolet Malibus.

    During servicing, a Passenger Presence System (PPS) may have been installed that was not correctly calibrated to the vehicle's seat type.

    As a result, the PPS may not properly identify an adult passenger from a child passenger in the front passenger seat, potentially causing the airbag to not deploy when it should, or to deploy when it shouldn't.

    In the event of a crash, improper airbag deployment can increase the risk of injury.

    What to do

    GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger PPS seat service kit, free of charge.

    The sensing diagnostic module may not deploy airbags in a crash

    General Motors is recalling 489 model year 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1s.
