2006 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Car was serviced Nov 10 2008, winter tires, oil change and general check, everything including brake pads were ok. Returned vehicle March 2009 to change tires back to summer and have oil changed, I have now been told that rotors are so bad that they are dangerous, replacement cost of $325.00/axel. I am a city driver, I drive with 1 foot and my pads were fine just 4 months ago;it wasn't even suggested that the pads be changed. I've not had any squealing, pulling or shaking, so I have to wonder...? I drove my last car for 14 years and only had to change the brake pads. Are GM parts of such poor quality? Rotors are not covered under GMPP total plus, even obviously faulty ones. Unacceptable

Best Features

Smooth ride, great acceleration. Like the look of exterior.

Worst Features

I leased because I was convinced by salesperson that I would have a maintenance free car for 4 years as everything was covered. GM should live up to their warranty claims and use better quality parts. I paid more than a grand extra,for coverage that is apparently worthless.
