A Chevy Malibu accelerator sensor lawsuit alleges the cars are equipped with defective accelerator pedal position sensors and/or faulty electronic throttle controls that cause messages that read, “Engine Power is Reduced.”
The proposed class action lawsuit includes all consumers who purchased or leased 2016-2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars.
Plaintiff Katrina Hutchinson purchased a new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu in May 2016 from a dealership in Maryland. She says she was driving when the Malibu displayed the engine power reduced warning, sending her car to a speed of about 20 mph.
Dealer technicians found the car displayed the P2138 diagnostic trouble code which indicated the Malibu needed a new accelerator pedal position sensor, repairs that were covered under warranty.
Hutchinson says the car experienced reduced engine power again in November 2018 when the Malibu had about 45,000 on it. The car was taken to a dealership which found error codes P2138 and P050d, with technicians saying the Malibu needed a new accelerator pedal. www.carcomplaints.com
