Malibu 4-cyl

  • 27,680 miles
The plastic-covered lug nuts on my 2012 Chevrolet Malibu do not stay tight against the wheels. The oem lug nuts vibrate loose and need to be checked periodically (I.e., monthly). Loose lug nuts are a significant safety hazard. I was unable to obtain replacement all-metal lug nuts for this vehicle from a Chevrolet dealership. I suggest that Chevrolet replace the plastic-covered lug nuts with all-metal lug nuts at no cost to the customers.
