I have already filed complaint in regards to the hazard light recall, which for some reason does not cover my 2000 Malibu. I noticed other complaints on the Malibu and figured I would throw my two cents in. I to have had to drop over $1000 dollars into the most defective car I have purchased this includes the $200 piece of junks I bought when I was a teenager. My list of problems. 1. coolant system leak cost $700 note: Mechanic laughed and said this happens all the time is this type of engine. In reviewing other complaints, the one really stands out. Nice I am glad GM owns up to its problems. 2. brakes constantly need to be replaced well below mileage. Glad GM saved a few bucks under sizing the rotors. 3. within a year the fans switch (levels 1,2) and lighter stopped working. Boy GM is saving lots money now. 4. within the past year I had fuel pump failure, nothing like traveling in rush hour traffic doing 75mph and car totally dieing. Boy GM has made one quality car. 5. the last insult, my first and likely last GM product is when I thought boy I finally get something from GM in regards to one small defect, the hazard switch, I find out that my vehicle is not covered by this recall. Wow not only I am out at least $1000 bucks on piece of crap product, GM does not even want to give a bone to hungry man. With this type of product it is no wonder GM is losing market share faster than any other automotive company. Keep up the good work GM. Clearly the are some serious defects with this vehicle and the GM's ownership with defects.

After purchasing a new car at 13,769 front shaking real bad, had dealership replace rotors. At 24,869 miles front end shaking real bad again. Went back to dealership to have replacement done and advised me that Florida weather causes the rotors to warp. Chevrolet advised me that was a issue that is not covered under warranty and will not replace even though they know it is defective rotors causing the problem.

Within 8 months I am now on the third set of rotors on a new car. Also, it feels like it is wobbly or shaky in the front tires, possible bad belts, unsure, but worried about the Firestone recall going on.( dot number: 027487 tire size: P215/60R15 )
