Chevy Malibu Recalled for Software Bug

The Chevrolet Malibu is subject to a new recall that may lead to disabled fuel injectors.

Sept. 18, 2019—The Chevrolet Malibu is being recalled for a software bug that may lead to disabled fuel injectors, reported CNET.

Approximately 177,276 Malibus model year 2018 are being recalled. The problem rests in an error that can occur in the engine control module (ECM). Should the fault occur, data may become corrupted in the ECM, and in turn, the computer could disable the fuel injectors.

This issue could lead to engines not starting and in some cases, stall while driving, which increases the risk of a crash.

Malibus without the 1.5-liter turbo-4 do not house the same ECM software and are not included in the recall.
