General Motors To Recall More Than 44,000 Chevy Malibus

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is recalling more than 44,000 Chevy Malibu midsize cars because the window defrosters may not work.
    
The recall affects cars from the 2014 model year.
    
GM says a computer that controls the ventilation system can revert to the previous setting even if a driver sets the controls to defrost. If that happens, the driver won't be able to clear the windshield to see where they're going. The problem happens when the cars are started.
    
GM dealers will reprogram the computer at no cost to customers. The company says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries from the problem.
    
The recall includes 42,696 Malibus in the U.S., with the rest in Canada and Mexico.
