Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

2002 Malibu. Rotors and pads have had to be replaced 3 times and pads alone once in 35000 miles. Chevrolet customer assistance says there is nothing wrong with the car. 3 different service departments have told me that this is a common problem with Malibu's and Grand Am's. brakes will be completely redesigned for 2004. Why redesign if there is no problem??
