1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 4 cycl from North America
I will think three times before buying another Chevy
Rust/rot around the gas tank entrance.
This rust/rot bothers me. I have been very careful to wait a few seconds after pumping the gas before taking the nozzle out of the gas tank entrance. The few times that I have spilled gas on the vehicle I have immediately wiped off the vehicle with wiper fluid. The rust/rot is coming from under the rubber that is suppose to protect the vehicle. It is coming from the inside out. It is going to cost me $632.00 to fix. There is no rust/rot anywhere else on the vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Is this true for all Malibu's? I have a 1999, bought used. I had a rust problem in the same area that the dealer fixed at no expense. Two years later, it has happened again and I'm fighting with them to have it fixed again, at their expense.
I would like to hear from others with the same problem and take the issue directly to GM. Thanks!!
