Vehicles Affected: Approximately 500 model-year 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid sedans manufactured between Oct. 27, 2015, and June 3, 2016
The Problem: A shut-off switch for the high-voltage battery for use when servicing the vehicle, called a manual service disconnect switch, may not be properly installed and may not lock into position. This could unexpectedly disconnect the high-voltage power while driving, effectively stalling the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the manual service disconnect switch and correct the installation as necessary for free.
What Owners Should Do: GM did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
