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.

Additionaly, those affected Buick Veranos, Chevrolet Camaros, Cruzes and Sonics will have their air bags recalibrated depending if they were under the cars identified to be affected..
