2011 CHEVROLET MALIBU RECALL - #14V252000

RECALL FOR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM : WIRING

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured May 16, 2003, through October 11, 2012, 2004-2007 Malibu Maxx vehicles manufactured June 25, 2003, through April 5, 2007, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 vehicles manufactured May 26, 2004, through January 4, 2010, and 2007-2010 Saturn Aura vehicles manufactured April 24, 2006, through May 26, 2009. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the Body Control Module (BCM) connection may result in voltage fluctuations in the Brake Apply Sensor (BAS) circuit. These fluctuations can cause one or more of these conditions: the brake lights to illuminate without the brake pedal being pushed; the brake lights to not illuminate when the pedal is pushed; difficulty disengaging the cruise control; moving the gear shifter out of the 'PARK' position without pushing the brake; and disablement of crash avoidance features such as traction control, electronic stability control, and panic braking assist features.

We bought our 2011 Chevy Malibu brand new, we've had many things done, Struts put on the right 2 times and 1 time on the left. 3 Goodyear tires needed replaced because tires had, a broken belt & 2 tires with low mileage had to be replaced because wire's showing threw. I took to the dealer where we bought the car when I notice that there was a noise that I was hearing on LR tire, they told me nothing was wrong. 2 weeks go by and my husband drives the car after I keep telling him I hear something in the front, he said yeah I can feel it in the steering wheel. Another tire needing replaced because the LF tire has wires starting to show threw! We have road hazard warranty on tires, the weird thing here is it is mostly on LF tire, Dealership have no answers on why this keeps happening. They did a four wheel alignment a few years back.

Do you drive a 2011 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.
