Description General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Saturn Aura and model year 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 vehicles, equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission. On these vehicles, the tabs on the transmission shift cable end may fracture and separate.
Consequences If the tabs were to fracture and separate, the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match. The driver would be able to move the shifter to 'PARK' and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in 'PARK.' The vehicle may not be able to be restarted and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash without prior warning.
Corrective action GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a retainer over the cable end or replace the shift cable as necessary. This service will be performed free of charge. Notification to owners began on on November 9, 2012. Owners were instructed to not bring their vehicles for repair until January 2013. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300.

Today as I was traveling approx 65mph, the esc light came on and then the power steering gave out. There is a recall on the 2006 models for this issue. After searching the internet tonight, it looks as if there should be a recall on this particular year as well.

I have a 2010 Malibu and my power steering is gone out I can't even drive my car cause it's to hard to turn it went out on the highway. so I took it to the shop the guy told me it was a recall on it so I call where I got the car they told me it was not a recall I'm so upset I don't know what to do but I still have to pay a car note for something I can't drive and to get it fixes its more than my car note for 4 months

Do you drive a 2010 CHEVROLET MALIBU?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
