Reuters reports that GM is recalling a lot of cars over an airbag safety issue. The Huffington post reports the story today: Chevrolet Malibu Eco Recall: GM Recalling 4,304 Cars Over Airbag Issue :

May 24 (Reuters) – General Motors Co said on Thursday it is recalling 4,304 Chevrolet Malibu Eco cars sold in the United States to reprogram a module that controls airbag deployments. The U.S. automaker said in what it described as rare cases under extremely aggressive turning, the roof rail airbags in some 2013 model year Malibu Ecos might inflate. It also said in another scenario it described as rarer that the airbags and safety belt pretensioners might not deploy. GM said no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue. GM said it discovered the problem during a development test in which one of the cars was performing extreme maneuvers. It said letters will be mailed to car owners on June 1 with instructions to have the reprogramming done at no cost at a dealer.
