problem #1

Jul 282003

Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,990 miles
Brakes pulse/vibrate, especially after stopping from speeds of 30+ mph. Dealer attempted 6 times to fix while under warranty, including turning rotors, replacing rotors (at 2200 miles), replacing hub assembly. All efforts have failed and problem returns in 3-9 months. Mileage averages 8000 miles per year, and brakes are not suddenly applied. Latest attempt is to replace brakes (at 29K000 miles) and install "shim kit."
