2017 CHEVROLET MALIBU

Report Date:
June 14, 2018
Campaign Number:
18V400000
Component:
AIR BAGS:SENSOR:OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2016-2018 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles. 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 air bag to not deploy when it should, or causing the air bag to deploy when it shouldn't.

Consequence Summary:
In the event of a crash, improper air bag deployment can increase the risk of injury.

Corrective Summary:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger PPS seat service kit, free of charge. The recall began August 7, 2018. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 18208.
