Recall Alert : 2016 Malibu Hybrid

RECALL Subject : Unexpectedly Loss of High Voltage Power

Report Receipt Date: JUL 08, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V521000
Component(s): HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM
Potential Number of Units Affected: 534

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Malibu Hybrid vehicles manufactured October 27, 2015, to June 3, 2016. The affected vehicles have a shut-off switch for the high voltage battery for use when servicing the vehicle. This manual service disconnect switch (MSD) may not be properly installed and thus may not lock into position, unexpectedly disconnecting the high-voltage power while driving, effectively stalling the vehicle.
CONSEQUENCE:
A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the MSD and correct the installation, as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 51230.
