Rear Brake Noise

2007 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I was greatly impressed with all aspects of the car except for one problem, a grunting or rumph noise in the rear breakes when the brakes were applied at a full stop. The dealer has removed the noise with brake repair. Unfortunatley the dealer found the same problem on another unsold Malibu on the lot. So as a warning to other potential buyers, in your test drive with radio and air condioning off, listen for this noise when making a full stop, especially when releasing the brake before moving on.

Favorite Features

Quiet, smooth ride. Very good pickup for a 4 cylinder car.

Suggested Improvements

That Chevrolet manufacturing watch for this rear brake problem and take corrective action. Average gas mileage of 25 mpg could be higher and closer to the top number on the window sticker.
