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 manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 18208.
