Malibu Recalled for Exploding Inflators

Airbag inflators are exploding in the 2010-2011 Malibu, but this time it’s not one made by Takata. GM says more than 1,100 sedans have ARC driver-side airbag inflators that are over-pressurizing, rupturing during an airbag deployment, and sending metal shrapnel through the cabin. The automaker has sent out a notice about the (obvious) danger this creates, but affected owners will have to wait for a second notice until the recall actually begins.

Let’s hope GM is feeling “over-pressurized” to get those replacement parts ready ASAP.
