Great fuel mileage - expensive repairs

2005 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The fuel mileage is excellent. The brakes fail way too early. I have gone through one complete brake shoes/pads/rotors.drums replacement at about 50,000 miles. Now the front rotors are warped again.. The transmission failed at 84,000 miles. I had it serviced at 80,000 miles (maintenance schedule calls for transmission service at 100,000 miles). I now have over $3000 in repairs on a 5 year car. I have a 13 year old Ford ranger (90k miles) that I have spent about $1000 in repairs. Good thing GM now has 10 year 1,000,000 power train warranty. However, what will that warranty do for you if the car strands you for 5 days 1000 miles from home while you wait for the transmission to be repaired?
Favorite Features
Very smooth engine. Excellent ride characteristics. Lots of interior room.
Suggested Improvements
Improve the brakes and transmission.
