 Description of the problemI have a chevy malibu 2018 and i commute to work 5 days a week 1 1/2 hours each way. During my commute without warning, a light came on indicating "engine power is reduced", the engine light, as well as the car slippery road sign. I have an appointment at mearle stone chevrolet in hopes this known problem in the 2018 models gets fixed without paying out of pocket expenses since there has been a major safety concern on the highways not being able to accelerate like normal and having to build up speed by taking foot off accelerator. I cannot pass due to this and the engine is winding out like i need to change gears while the rpms are going up. I cannot get past 60mph even with accelerator all the way down. I am concerned with this model being made in april of 2018, and the chevy malibu class action law suite on "engine power being reduced". This can be very dangerous knowing it can get worse if the dealer does not fix this. I have only had my car barely coming up for a year. I need to have a reliable and safe car that i don't need to worry if this will happen again.
