This problem on Chevrolet Malibu models can also prevent the engine from starting as it disables the fuel injectors. In a worse scenario, while the motorists go on the road, the engine can shut itself down in an instant. This significantly increases the risk of collision with someone.

Other versions of Malibu models that do not have a 1.5-liter turbo 4 engine do not have this problem. Chevrolet will install a new ECM software on the Malibu models recalled to correct the problem and eliminate the problem. There is no charge for recalled cars. In addition, Chevrolet will pay customers who have paid elsewhere to solve the problem.
