Passenger Airbag Problems
By foresterjoe on


2010 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


My wife and I bought this car two years ago with only 21k on it.
Drove it and loved it initially, then the car started to have issues.
Since we have owned it (now over 2 years), we have had it in the shop 6 times; 5 of those dealing with the passenger air bag system and 1 to replace the final drive in the transmission.
3 out of the 5 times have been for the wiring harness/connectors.
We just had it in last month for the airbag and guess what, yesterday we had the light come back on.
Poor design that GM won't recognize as being a major problem.
Thank goodness for extended warranty, but still costs us $100 a pop for deductible.
Won't buy another GM car again.
That's for sure!
