2014 Chevrolet Malibu Recalled for Faulty Brakes

Chevrolet will recall 140,067 Malibu sedans from the 2014 model year because of a problem with their brakes.

Affected models have the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and are equipped with engine an start-stop feature. General Motors is expected to announced the recall campaign officially on Thursday, May 15, but Automotive News reports that Chevrolet dealers are receiving letters about the campaign.

Affected models may have their brake vacuum assist and hydraulic boost assist disabled, which will increase the effort required on the driver’s part to slow down, increasing the risk of a crash.

NHTSA documents show eight complaints filed against the 2014 Malibu, of which two describe symptoms the same as the yet-unannounced recall.

Owners with affected vehicles can expect to receive written notification that their vehicle is affected.
