General Motors is the latest auto maker to recall some vehicles due to overly sensitive controls -- in this case, the problem affects the Chevrolet Malibu. The affected cars span the 2013 to 2015 model years, and are afflicted with a problem we've been seeing a crackdown on lately: controls that are too sensitive, causing a setting to be changed (in this case, the sunroof to close) with only the slightest touch. Almost 92,000 of the Malibu vehicles are affected.
