Recall roundup: Chevrolet Malibu

The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced a recall for the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu because of a problem with the rear suspension.

Bad news for those of you who own GM-made vehicles in the United States because after announcing a recall for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, 2012 Chevrolet Sonic and 2012 Buick Verano not too long ago, the North American based automaker is now telling us about a new recall, which is involving the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. According to the NTHSA, owners of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the rear suspension.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that some nuts in the rear suspension may not have been torque correctly and if ignored, this problem might lead to a crash or to an injury. No reports on crashes or injuries related to this issue have been received by GM. A total of 8,519 units of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedans, produced between December 2011 and January 15, 2013, will be affected by this recall. Owners of the above mentioned model are being advised to contact GM or the NHTSA.
