Date: Received Date: Mar. 11, 2016;   Recorded Date: Mar. 11, 2016;  
Campaign Id: 16V151000
Recalled Vehicles: 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

Affected Vehicles: 3,137
Recall Summary: General motors llc (gm) is recalling certain 2016 malibu vehicles manufactured February 16, 2016, to March 5, 2016. The two weld studs that mount the front and rear side impact air bags may fracture and separate from the air bag during deployment. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) no. 214, "side impact protection. "
Consequence: Fractured weld studs may allow the side air bag to move out of position during deployment, increasing the risk of injury.
How to Fix: Gm will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side air bag modules, 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 31820.
Recall Notes: Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to www. Safercar. Gov.
