Mel52, it’s so critical to have your device working properly with your car. Have you ever used the 2018 Malibu with any other phones before? If not, please test your vehicle with another phone if possible. Does anything show up at all on your car screen when you get a text? Are your phone texting and notifications working properly on the phone itself? What texting applications is this happening with (Verizon Message Plus, regular Messages app, etc.)?
