Won't Buy Chevrolet Again
By M. Spoagis on


2008 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Bought the Malibu new and now have 7050 miles on it. At 7000 miles exactly the driver's door lock stopped working. Visited dealer and now have an appointment to have door lock motor replaced. I am amazed that something could go wrong at only 7000 miles on a car that was named "car of the year". I have had many cars over the years. I had a vehicle I bought used from Hertz and didn't have any problems for eight years. Prior to buying the Malibu, I had a Mazda for ten years that only had regular maintenance. I am completely disappointed with the Malibu. I am now worried about what will happen next. Maybe I should sell it before warranty expires.
