Vehicles Affected: Approximately 177,300 model-year 2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars equipped with turbocharged 1.5-liter engines
The Problem: An error in the engine control module software may disable the fuel injectors. This could prevent the engine from starting and/or cause a stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the engine control module software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
