If the windshield began to fog or frost, there may not be enough airflow to clear the windshield, resulting in reduced driver visibility and a possible crash without prior warning.

Visibility — Defroster/Defogger/Hvac System

GM is recalling 77 MY 2009 Chevrolet Malibu hybrid vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 103, "windshield defrosting and defogging system." The heating, ventilation, and airconditioning (HVAC) system may become inoperative. If this were to occur, the blower would not function properly and the mode selector would remain in the last known setting.
Dealers will reprogram the HVAC control head module. The recall is expected to begin on December 17, 2008. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or through their website at>
