GM Recalls Chevy Malibu Hybrids for Windshield Defroster Issue

General Motors Corp. is recalling 77 2009 Chevrolet Malibu hybrid vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 103, "Windshield Defrosting and Defogging System," according to a report from the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the report, the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system may become inoperative, causing the blower to not function properly. If this were to occur, the manufacturer says the windshield might fog or frost and not be clearable.

The manufacturer warns vehicle owners to bring the vehicles to dealers, which will re-program the HVAC system. The recall began on December 17.
