1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 from North America
Replace ignition switch at 43000 miles.
Rear window needs repaired.
A/C goes on and off.
Plug wires needed repaired at 44000.
Brakes squeal constantly.
Check engine light comes on constantly unless my husband is driving it :)
This car is the biggest hunk of dung I have ever owned. I am constantly wondering what is next. I am afraid to even drive it anywhere. We just put $133 dollars in it last week and it's check engine light is on yet again. I hate this car. I would recommend taking the bus before I would tell someone to buy this heap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I still own this vehicle. Joy of joys it's still running. LOL. It now has a little over 47,000 miles. New stuff that's wrong: The headlights (and interior lights) flicker on and off when it rains, noises galore.
One sound happens when you start the car. It seems to originate in the dash board and sounds like someone injured a farm animal. Today the anti theft system light is on again. We had that repaired last year (253 dollah... made us hollah) I stand around hoping this car will make it another day.
We owe 7900 on it and it books for about 3500. So we'll be buying stock in Vasoline pretty soon. I'd take it back to the dealer, but he closed shop and skipped town after the bank came in and took all the cars on his lot. Sigh.

It's now November and we still own this bad boy. It's got 49,255 miles on it now and has just begun giving me grief again. I use this car only to drive my kids to and from school and if I HAVE to go somewhere.
I just can't rely on it to start. We had the ignition switch replaced in 03 and now it's beginning to give us problems again. I go to start the car, and it won't start. The anti theft system light just blinks for about 12 minutes until it quits and I'm able to start the car. This helps a bunch when you're in a hurry. LOL.
Now we owe 6400 on the car. I've been paying extra on it so we don't take a total bite in the butt when we trade it. Some days I find myself longing for it to blow up. Then I'd have NO choice. LOL.
