Perhap prior owner had them disabled by the dealer. I have a 2006 Maxx. Me and few others on these malibu forums have the opposite problem. The heated seats turn on by themselves. The dealers have not been able to determine cause.

Got a letter from GM this week, they are extending the warranty on steering columns on the electric steering vehicles (Malibu, G6) to 7 years or...over 100,000kms (cant recall the exact figure).

Yes I'm in Canada and it's 7 yrs/110,000kms. A steering column assembly at no charge. Only covers loss of power assist, and having had a DIC warning message about power steering. It also covers reimbursement up to the end of 08 if you've had to pay for it in the time period stated.

that is weird that they have that policy for canada and not the us. My car is also exhibiting the same symptoms just bought the car several days ago for short money. so far the dealership is attempting to keep me from returning the car i am in talks with gm to rememdy the situation. it has been stated in other forums that their is a flaw in the current design of the iss to the same extent of the prior problem with the silverado recall. i have the tsb available for anyone that is interested. also if anyone has further information or remedies feel free to drop me a line. thanks

I have an 04 Malibu and I have the same problem. I will make certain to ask my dealer about this the next time I take the car in. Thanks for the info.
I have a question though. Do you a problem with the blinker light bulbs going out on a frequent basis? My husband has to replace at least one every 3-4 months. I have never had lights go out on a car that frequently.

make sure you clean the sockets out very well when replacing bulbs....dont get finger prints on the bulbs....and if you havent changed your battery out...it may be time for that as well...after I replaced my car battery...seems most OEMs are good for about 3 years.....I havent blown a bulb...go figure....

I have a 2000 Malibu LS, and recently found out that there are 3 recalls on it!! I'm the 2nd owner and I WAS NEVER NOTIFIED ABOUT THESE RECALLS. I found out by viewing my Progressive Car ins. online. Why was I never notified? All my info. is correct and has NEVER been changed.
The info that I got about having 3 recalls was or had been provided by "Edmunds".

Do the recalls definitely apply to your vehicle, by VIN?

did you purchase the car from a GM dealer or another brand dealer or private party....all depends on who registered the car in the GM database....
