2000 Chevrolet Malibu 3.1 V6 from North America
What hasn't been replaced???
New steering rack at 15,000
4 sets of brakes... so far
Keyless entry works whenever, had this problem since day one.
Fan motor replaced at 20,000
Entire front suspension at approx. 29,000
PassLock security ignition switch replaced
Front speakers replaced
A/C switch replaced, went on and off whenever
Tires replaced at 20,000...they sucked
3 thermostats... so far
New tie rods last year-just before warranty up-thank goodness
Misc. lights keep blowing out
Gas mileage not the greatest, dealer says everything is the way it is supposed to be as far as adjustments etc.
For being my first brand new car I am not impressed. Everything was repaired/replaced under warranty, but now that the warranty is up, I hope I have no more problems... otherwise this car is being pushed into the ocean!!! The dealership was not very nice either, were nice to me after I call GM twice and complained. I had a 1988 Pontiac Bonneville with over 200,000 miles when I sold it, and some of the things that went wrong in the Malibu never went wrong in the Bonneville!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
