2001 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.0 from North America
ABS light on at 23000 miles... fixed and again has come on, same sensor replaced twice... now has been on for 50000 miles and I'm not fixing it.
Blower only works on 2 speeds... water pump replaced.. brakes in the front approx every 20000 miles.. I drive all highway miles, 200 a day..
And most recently I cannot start the car.. it cranks, but won't start.. towed to the dealer.. needs an ignition cylinder?... OK for 410.00, I'll see..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I am also having problem with the car not starting. It's been towed in twice for cranking, but not starting in a six week period of time. Someone told me to have them look at the car's computer for a faulty part there.
Brakes do have to be replaced often due to material they are made with. They are strong brakes, but do wear down quicker than other brake types causing more frequent replacement.
The car rides and drives nice. We've taken several longer trips (six plus hours) in this car successfully and comfortably.

I also have had problems with the Malibu not starting. I have a solution try this. Get in your car turn the key to AC. leave there for 12 minutes turn the key off and then start your car. Make sure you wait the 12 minutes or this will not work. It is a problem with the anti-theft device on the car. If you play with or do something that makes the car thing its being stolen it will not start. I cannot touch the radio after its off or right before I turn it off. And if you hit the gear shift to hard or bump the key.
