1999 Chevrolet Malibu from North America
Nice car, but, too many repair problems
Horn inoperable. Have taken back to the dealer twice and it still does not work.
Dash board overheats. The radio control buttons overheat when headlights are turned on. I've had the dealer look at this problem twice; only to be told it's a design defect and I'll have to live with it. Their solution was to dim the lights to reduce the overheating.
I had to replace the rotors and pads at about 30,000 miles. This seems to be a recurring problem among other owners of this model as well.
The air condtioner/fan does not operate at settings 1 and 2.
I recently have problems shifting the gear from park to drive. At just 39,000 miles, I should not have these problems.
Overall the car looks nice, is roomy and I like the trunk space. It handles well on the road. However, I'm having too many problems that require repairs and am seriously considering getting rid of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
