2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I HATE this car! I bought it with only 2400 miles on it and have had it only 9 months. I have had more problems than I ever had with my 2001 Civic after 120K miles. I now have 19,000 miles and have had to get new rotors at 8,000 miles. I have been to the dealership 5 times because the car randomly turns off when I stop at redlights. The dealerships claims they can't duplicate the problem so they can't fix it. The car jolts real bad when driving at a steady 50 mph. Again the dealership "cant duplicate the problem" I demanded reprogramming of the computer and so far I have not had many problems, but then again it has only been a months since the reprogramming. Paint has also worn off radio.
Make sure the car doesnt turn off when stopped before you put it on the market, make the paint stronger on radio buttons so it doesnt wear off after a short time, make the breaks last longer....
