2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS from North America
A Piece of Junk, Don't buy this car
Changed rotors & pads three times in two years.
My fuel gage is now staying full until I drive 160 KM on the take of gas. I have ran out of gas for three times while my gas gage says still I have a quarter left. I had towed away my cars for two times and dealer says this problem does not cover 5 years power train warranty. Now I fill up gas based upon trip odometer.
I am experincing a problem with suspension with a loud squeak every single time I drive over a bump.
The entire wire system is hay wire. Light flicker continue makes noise. The tail lights continue to go. During the storm, the water left out in the systems and burned out all the bulbs.
Cooling system leaks, overheating the car, Replaced thermostat, water pump, intake gasket., cost me about $900.00. Problem started again last week, cooling leaking, overheating car, cooling fan does not work. I don't know how much it will cost to fix it.
Two weeks ago change the tension & belt, cost me about $ 480.00
Fuel tank lights comes on all the time, few times I open the fuel tank's lid and close it. It went away and came back, Took to the dealer, changed the sensor, Same problem still there.
I had also replaced the front wheel bearings.
Air Conditioning blower will not work on 1 & 2.
I have had the several problems & I think the Chevrolet should recall and fix all the problems. This is a brand new car I had purchased and I am still paying the loan money. New car should last atleast five years without major problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If you acquired the car with that many miles on it, there's no telling how the previous owner/owners treated the car. Anybody who knows anything about cars, and takes care of them, can make them last a lot longer. They could also recognize problems the car already has, before they purchase it and blame all their problems on Chevrolet.
