GM recalling Malibu Ecos over faulty airbags


Got a brand new Chevy Malibu Eco? Your airbag might be faulty.

General Motors Co. said Thursday it is recalling 4,304 Chevrolet Malibu Eco cars to reprogram a module that controls the deployment of airbags.

GM said in rare cases under extremely aggressive turning, the roof rail airbags in some 2013 model year Malibu Ecos might inflate. It also said the airbags and safety belt pretensioners might not deploy in even rarer cases.

The automaker plans to send letters to car owners on June 1 with instructions to have the reprogramming done at a dealer at no cost.
