Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,130 miles
My 2002 Chevy Malibu ls would not start and needed towed home. This is the first time this has happened and seems to happen regularly to other Malibu owners with no recall from GM yet. I have a young child and wife that drive use the car mostly and am worried of their safety if this would happen on a highway. I have also had problems with the windshield wipers quitting during a rainstorm. I contacted GM and I was told there was no recall and all repairs would be out of pocket even though this is a safety issue. The vehicle only has 50,000 miles on it.
