2005 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


I have had several problems with my Malibu. The sun visor mirror had to be replaced. The check engine light had to be serviced. The steering shaft has been replaced 3 times. My car jerks and feels like its going to take off at least 3 times per month and the dealer doesn't know why. I am always replacing bulbs. The passenger door would not shut completely and has to be fixed. I have reached 55,000 miles and I feel that this car is not going to last another 55,000 miles.

My car starts right up and has not left me stranded.

Wow I forgot about the mirror and the sun visor. I had to replace the rear view mirror it just fell of one day when I was adjusting it and so did the sun visor I haven't replace it as of yet. i guess I have to take it to the dealership, not sure. and the light bulb forget it I've spent so much money on them I think they know me at Pepboys since i;m always there buying them.
