1998 Chevrolet Malibu from North America
Can't afford to own this car
The coolant light comes on sporadically.
The ABS had to be replaced.
The theft system light comes on and shuts the car down. This has been checked twice and no one can find out why this happens.
The radio reception has never worked properly.
The air conditioner isn't working properly and needs to be fixed.
Most of these things started happening after 30,000 miles. I still owe two years on this car. As other people in my area seem to be finding out, this is a high maintenance vehicle and not worth what I paid for it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I agree with this review. I have 70,000 miles, and have just put on my fourth set of rotors and pads. (the dealer paid for the first two). When I complained to the dealer, he said that the rear brakes needed to be cleaned and adjusted every 12 - 15,000 miles for this not to happen. I've driven many cars in my life and have never had this problem before.
Now the ABS light comes on. I'm going to the dealer tomorrow to find out how much I have to pay for another problem!!!
I would not recommend this car to a friend, as another owner I know is having the same problem with the brakes at only 9,000 miles!
