I really want to buy american but this
makes it hard
I have had my Malibu for only 2 years,
and in that two years, it has been
nothing but problem after problem. I
bought the car with only 68,000 miles
on it. The dealer I bought it from
actually put about 1500 bucks into it
during the first 6 months I had it
(part of the selling agreement to fix
some of the things)....I hate this car,
and will never own another Chevy after
this. Every fluid the car has in it,
other then the brake fluid has leaked
at some point. I just received a
recall on it. The driver's side power
window works when it feels like it.
I actually just hope I make it to work
and back every day......so I have no
Get a better engine set-up,, one that
doesn't leak everything!!!!!
this was the first car i ever
financed,thought i was getting a great
deal, within the first month my anti-
theft system locked up, and my power
window/lock switch broke. i went
through 2 sets of brakes, one day it
wouldnt start, had it towed to chevy
dealership were it sat for 4 days i
couldnt get them to look at it. my
husband ended up fixing it in the
parking lot himself. 1 week before i
traded it the emegency brake got stuck
i could still drive it but every time i
pulled out it made the dinging sound.
the bad part is i only owned it 1 year.
puschased this veh at 36k miles,
appently all the good had been used.
had trouble with alignment on rear
tires. car vibrates excessively and the
road noise is terrible. car was quasi-
ok for the first year we had it, put in
a new battery. had the alternator
replaced. last year the water pump went
out. that is quite a chore!! had to
remove the timing chain.would not
recommend this car to others.
I have enjoyed my malibu. great
family vehicle. we have taken many
long and short trips in this care, truck
size is great, ride is smooth and
comfortable. 4 adults can
comfortably sit in the car. Need
some work on the brake system, the
glove compartment doesn't close
flush, and the a/c system constantly
gets leaves in the coils.
Trunk size, good interior room- 4
adults can comfortably ride, good
size car, not like driving a boat size
car or a mini.
a/c intake needs a guard on the
outside vents to stop leaves and
debris getting on the coils which
clogs up the a/c. had to get quite a
few brake jobs, never seemed to last
very long, not like other cars.
