Letter from senator burr on behalf of constituent concerning problems with her 2009 Chevrolet Malibu: She feels it a prime candidate for GM to reclaim under provisions of the North Carolina lemon law the consumer stated on second day of ownership, the vehicle had to be returned to the dealer for defective parts and remained there for approximately three weeks. Since then, the vehicle has been returned several times for defects relating to the engine, computer, and catalytic converter. The consumer stated while driving on mountainous or hilly terrains the engine would slow down dramatically.
