2011 Chevrolet Malibu
2011 Chevrolet Malibu
The Malibu is the Chevrolet Impala's little brother. This smaller midsized sedan has become one of the most popular GM models and these are in direct completion with the Ford Taurus which is another hugely popular midsized family sedan. The Malibu takes advantage of the GM Epsilon front-wheel-drive platform to give this vehicle a narrow and lower height than many other cars in its class. This may help when it comes to cornering, but it does very little for those who were planning on fitting in the back seat.

The Malibu keeps getting new updates and tweaks to its overall look, feel and performance. These changes usually bring a stronger package to consumers but the smaller back seats are not a change for the better. The Malibu can be filled to the brim with extra features and options, if you want this car to have more power, extra tech gadgets or even some shiny rims, all of these features can be added to give you the custom car you have dreamed of. The base model starts right under $22,000 but that is just a starting point for most buyers looking at this award winning sedan from Chevrolet.

General Motors has enlisted its Australian brand, Holden, to help fine-tune the upcoming 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. The new car is a global model intended for sale in over 100 countries worldwide, so Holden engineers are tasked with calibrating the Malibu for sales in overseas markets.

General Motors’ bankruptcy disrupted the lives and benefits of many retirees, but one group of former executives is looking to reclaim what was formerly theirs. A group of 100 retirees, all formerly senior executives within the automaker, are suing the new General Motors in hopes of restoring their original pensions and retirement benefits. GM’s bankruptcy forced the automaker to reevaluate and amend the benefits paid to its retirees. As a result, GM saved some $4.6 billion by cutting pensioned retiree health payments, and another $2.7 billion by eliminating health insurance for salaried retirees over the age of 65 and eligible for Medicare. Undoubtedly, executives saw the biggest cuts -- but then again, they may have received the biggest payouts to begin with. In 2009, retired GM execs who had annual pensions in excess of $100,000 saw their benefits slashed by two-thirds, allowing GM to save $221 million. A group of plaintiffs, including John Middlebrook, a former vice president of brand marketing, and Don Hudler, once a head of Saturn, originally challenged these cuts last November, alleging that GM was providing “substantially less” than what they were owed. GM reportedly failed to respond to the challenge within 60 days, leading the group to file an appeal with GM’s Executive Compensation Committee, which rebuffed the request. As a result, the group filed suit against the automaker in U.S. District Court in Detroit. “Sacrifices were made by every stakeholder, including former executives,” reads a statement from GM, “to create a foundation upon which the new GM can thrive. “We have not been served with the complaint, but these former executives previously requested that the administrator of the executive retirement plan review their entitlement to certain benefits. The administrator denied their claim after thoroughly reviewing the matter. "We are confident that the plan administrator properly considered and denied their claim," GM said in the statement. A similar lawsuit was filed by former Chrysler executives last September. More than 450 former managers and executives -- famously including former chairman Lee Iacocca -- alleged Chrysler’s former stewards (Daimler AG and Cerberus Capital Management) failed to protect their pensions.

At times, it has seemed the only cheerleaders for wagons in the U.S. have been automotive journalists, which have waxed poetic about this breed’s combination of practicality and driving dynamics, unmatched by bulkier and heavier crossovers and SUVs. But it appears wagons may also have some fans in GM’s boardroom, if a quote from General Motors’ Mark Reuss is any indication.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured May 16, 2003, through October 11, 2012, 2004-2007 Malibu Maxx vehicles manufactured June 25, 2003, through April 5, 2007, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 vehicles manufactured May 26, 2004, through January 4, 2010, and 2007-2010 Saturn Aura vehicles manufactured April 24, 2006, through May 26, 2009. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the Body Control Module (BCM) connection may result in voltage fluctuations in the Brake Apply Sensor (BAS) circuit. These fluctuations can cause one or more of these conditions: the brake lights to illuminate without the brake pedal being pushed; the brake lights to not illuminate when the pedal is pushed; difficulty disengaging the cruise control; moving the gear shifter out of the 'PARK' position without pushing the brake; and disablement of crash avoidance features such as traction control, electronic stability control, and panic braking assist features.
Consequences
Any of the above failure conditions increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will relearn the brake pedal home position, free of charge. The manufacturer distributed an Interim letter to customers on July 14, 2014. The recall began on August 18, 2014. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-762-2737 (Pontiac), 1-800-553-6000 (Saturn). GM's number for this recall is 13036.
