2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco recalled for airbag risks
General Motors found during internal testing that when performing aggressive turning maneuvers in the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco, in very extreme conditions there is a chance that the side impact roof rail airbags could deploy for no real reason. Having an airbag open suddenly while driving presents a risk of injury to the unsuspecting driver as well as posing a risk to other drivers and pedestrians who may be around the Malibu Eco when the airbag opens unexpectedly so this issue poses a clear safety hazard. Imagine trying to keep your eyes on the road when a huge side curtain airbag slams into the side of your head.
In total 4,304 examples of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco sedan are affected.
