General Motors recalls about 60,000 Chevy Malibu cars

Chicago, Nov 16 : Leading US automaker General Motors Corporation issued two recalls for about 60,000 Chevrolet Malibu sedans due to problems with power seat wiring and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

According to a report, the Detroit-based auto giant is recalling 14,930 Malibu cars of the 2013 model from North America because wiring beneath the seats can catch fire, reported Xinhua Friday.

Meanwhile, 44,406 Malibu sedans of the 2014 model are also being recalled because the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC) controls may not operate properly when the engine is turned on.

If the HVAC control is not operating, the system will revert to the setting selected when the vehicle was last driven. If that setting was not in defrost mode, the driver may be unable to clear the windshield, which could lead to decreased visibility, explained the corporation.

The recall reportedly involves 42,696 Malibus in the US, 1,034 in Canada and 676 in Mexico. General Motors dealers will re-programme the HVAC control module without cost to customers.

General Motors recalled nearly 340,000 Chevrolet Cruze cars globally Aug 16 due to a possible loss of brake-assist in the vehicle.
