General Motors has recalled its 2013 Malibu Eco cars for a problem with the air bag electronics. The car is Chevy’s redesigned midsize sedan with the so-called e-Assist hybrid powertrain also used on the Buick. Conventional gas-engine 2013s are coming, but the other Malibus on sale now are the 2012 last-generation models. GM will notify owners of 4,304 Malibu Eco to bring them to dealers for new software for the computer module that controls the air bags. GM says that in an extreme turn, the side-curtain air bags might go off and that in other situations the car’s air bags and seat-belt pre-tensioners might not deploy. GM says it found the issue in testing the car. GM says it has no reports of crashes or injuries.
