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


literally two weeks after buying the car the air conditioner went out, i live in Texas and bought the car in July rolling with out an AC was not an option. i also had the same problem as everyone else with the tie rods and the power steering cutting out. but the worst was when i started feeling my brakes locking up. i later found out it was due to the rubber in the caliper rotting and allowing break dust into my breaking system. i didn't have the money for a whole new brake system. so for the last year or so i owned the car i couldnt drive on the freeway. having your brakes lock up at 70mph is EFFING SCARY. im so much happier with my suzuki econo car. not as roomy but way more fun to drive.

Your brake system is under pressure,no way brake dust can get into it. Sounds like you need to get a new mechanic and change your brake pads before the chew your rotors up and start hanging up. I have coming up on almost 200,000 miles and have changed my battery, brakes, tires, and tie rods ends, which you must do as all mechanical items wear. Love the mileage, ride, acceleration, and comfort. Love the car period!
