2014 Chevrolet Malibu Recalled: Defroster May Fail

2014 Chevrolet Malibu Recalled: Defroster May Fail
Share this Article

General Motors is launching a recall campaign affecting roughly 42,700 Chevrolet Malibu sedans from the 2014 model year.

According to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the heating and air conditioning systems can intermittently shut off after the vehicle is started. That will prevent the  windshield defrosters from working.

Affected models were built between June 12, 2013 and November 5, 2013 and need an updated electronic climate control module. GM says it will notify owners  with vehicles that fall under the campaign, which begins on December 6. The update will be carried out through General Motors’ dealer network and, as usual, owners won’t be charged for the service.
