A letter issued to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration from General Motors has surfaced surrounding defects in the manufacturing process of some 8,519 2013 Chevrolet Malibu models. In a parallel move, GM is also recalling about 3,896 2012 Buick Veranos, Chevrolet Camaros, Cruzes, and Sonics for an air bag malfunction.
