    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.
