Thank Goodness for warrantees You need i

1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan
I was very disappointed with this
purchase, and because it lost value so
quickly, I feel strange trading it
in... I have taken this vehicle in
about 8 times for front end work all
under warrantee, but now i'm starting
to wonder... 1. control arm in front
(sqeak within the first 4k miles), 2.
bushings in back (sqeaking on a new
car?), 3. three sets of disc rotors
(they warped under the weight of the
vehicle), 4. engine mounts collapsed,
5. head gasket (coolant spilling into
engine!), 6. rear electric window
problem (did not fix), 7. unexpected
bad handling in windy conditions, 8.
front end shaking at Hwy speeds. I wish
I had bought a HONDA ACCORD -- it still
would be worth a few BUCKS!
good accelration, love the smooth
shifting, that's why I got it!,
features and confort
BETTER ENGINEERING! I've been told that
the 1999 and later years problems were
fixed. I bet GM has lost alot of money
on these vehicles -- they sure needed a
lot of warrantee work -- I talked to
the service people...
