2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.4 V6 Gas from North America
The Malibu is mud in the face of the GM Corp
Warped Rotors at low mileage-Twice.
Replaced Brake Pads-Twice.
Hazard Light Switch Replaced.
Passlock System going out-won't start
It was towed twice. Sometimes it will start and sometimes we have to wait Ten minutes for the theft light to go off.
Overheating while A/C is off and in Traffic.
Water Coolant Reservoir cracked.
Injectors had to be cleaned due to sluggish acceleration.
Most of the problems we have had with this car were under warranty. Now the warranty is out. The Passlock Theft system is what we are having problems with now.
Anybody that reads this must call the GM help line and report all claims.
I reported my claims, but he said that there were not enough claims to do a recall. So people report if you can.
I had heard thru my Dealer and GM that they have recall for Malibu's coming up. But I don't know what it is for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also had to replace the Hazard switch - but GM, to its credit, reimbursed me for the repair after they issued a recall on the problem. I have also had a pulsating brake pedal and had the rotors turned twice in the last 12000 miles (last time 3000 miles ago and the pedal pulsates again - although it stops fine) the car has 60,000 miles with NO OTHER problems.
