problem #3

May 312017

Malibu ECO

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,155 miles

This is a recurring problem with my vehicle. I learned through service history that this repair was done 2 times by the previous owner. Oil leak caused serpentine belt to become soaked and then shredded, thus resulting in car breaking down. I am entering each incident separately. This was the first occurrence since I purchased the vehicle.

This is a recurring issue with my vehicle. Oil is leaking and the service department just keeps making the same repair and returning the car. I don't know much about engines but clearly there must be a bigger issue

This is a recurring problem with my vehicle! This repair has been done 5 times! This entry was for the 4th time. I broke down due to the serpentine belt getting soaked with oil and then shredded causing engine to stop.
