Headlight switch is bad (lights go out on whim, brights won't stay on), engine light is on, drivers window is stuck open, all door gaskets are torn when bought it.

22 Mar

I have had to replace the engine three times (due to over heating), transmission twice (hard shifting), security moge, headlight switch (headlights turn off at night while driving), catalytic.

6 Mar

At 115,000 miles I have had to replace the cooling fans and the catalytic converter which was covered under warranty.

9 Jul

Brake rotors from factory are soft and warp easy (had already been replaced under warranty before we got the car), replaced them with ones from Car Quest (and put on ceramic pads).

6 Oct

Have had issues with the brake rotors and transmission that both had to be replaced under warrenty.

23 Dec

Only problem has been brake rotors due to heavy road salt but completely covered by warrantee!

2 May

The only problem in 10k miles was a leak in the gas tank filler neck that required replacement of the tank - under warranty.

No one bothered to mention the Stainless Steel exhaust which NEVER got replaced on my Lumina, as well as the original shocks.

9 Mar

As with my past Lumina, great mileage or as we say in Canada kilometerage.

17 Jan

I have had the thermastat, starter, all the pulleys, belt, fuel filter and fuel pump, radiator, brakes, coolant reservoir, water pump, the heater core and then quick connectors all repaired in the two years I have owned it.

13 Apr

As far as maintenance goes, I had the brake booster replaced because the rpms and engine would stall after pressing on the brake pedal, this was a $440.00 job.

Have not had any brake problems yet I'm mainly thinking some people that have these are hard on their brakes that's why they keep spending on them.

15 Oct

So far really nothing has gone wrong with it just needed to fix the gas cap once which was no more than a hundred bucks and the brake pads twice so far.

19 Jun

Then the next major problem was that the brakes needed to replaced.

16 Mar

Fuel pump, gasket, water pump, coolant leak, brakes, catilitic convertor, spark plugs.

21 Feb

I bought this car about a year ago, in that time I have replaced tires, brakes, fuel pump, blinker switch, battery, oil pump switch, intake manifold, gasket, water pump, and currently the head gasket is also leaking.

3 Nov

Brakes, fuel pump, brakes, engine, brakes.

The only thing wrong with the interior is that the texas heat had beaten down on the dash where the woodgrain trim is at by the AC vents.

26 Aug

I recommend flushing the cooling system, to help slow down erosion of the gaskets.

So far, I have had to replace the entire ignition and harness, the fuel pump, brakes are junk, heater core, engine coolant seal, and numerous other smaller things.

5 Mar

It was expensive to fix, and there was no guarantee against it happening again, let alone other engine damage.

14 Jan

Only time will tell if it recurs, or if I get the engine leak problem too!

26 Aug

.the head gaskets from the factory, are junk and a ticking time bomb.

23 Aug

Car lets you hear a ton of road noise.

15 Mar

Terrible handling, poorly designed seats, significant road and engine noise.

27 Jan

I can alos attest to the rattling noise i can hear deep in the engine.

30 Jun

but claims they can't hear a knocking noise on third round!

13 Apr

I have a toggle switch wired to disengage the theft system when it wants to play games and it's never failed me .

16 Sep

though was the theft system failure problems of having the car not start occasionally as if I were trying to steal my own car!

10 Dec

Problems are: Anti theft system, lower intake manifold gasket, front wheel bearing.

26 Aug

I recommend flushing the cooling system, to help slow down erosion of the gaskets.

31 May

The anti-theft system can be annoying when it won't let you start (has happened to me about 4 times over the years),

22 Jan

The theft system on this car is always going off and will not turn on until at least 10 min. later.

19 Jan

Also the car has very poor electrical systems.

3 Jul

The Theft System was inappropriately making my car not start at random times, leaving me sitting for 10 minutes wherever and whenever, waiting for the system to restart.

12 Dec

The Malibu has a serious design flaw in its cooling system.

Small leak in A/C lines, repaired and filled for $75 at a Ford lot.

27 May

The A/C needs recharged every month during the summer and on 80°F & hotter days, you can't tell it's working. I've quit making repairs ($6k during 3 yr loan!)

14 Jun

The A/C randomly stops working.

8 Jun

The fan motor does not work in the low speed settings

26 Apr

The engine is a junk (we had to replace the intake gasket), the A/C system has to be recharged monthly (the compressor and few other things has to be replaced)-still is not working properly!

1 Mar

A little after I bought it when I went to use the AC or heater the fan levels periodically stopped working.

26 Jan

A/C problems.

22 Sep

Have an ongoing problem with the A/C compressor cutting off and we've replaced the water pump.

21 Feb

Along with ABS, fan switch, and brakes this makes for a very expensive car to maintain.

We had to fix the driver's power window, pull the remote lock when the Service Soon light came on, replace the serpentine belt, replace a melted tab that kept brake lights on, and changed the battery once.

16 Mar

had to send to junk yard due to my stupidity with jacking it up in the rear in the wrong spot and bent something that cause the back end to come around when you hit the breaks.

4 Feb

but problems, not me drove it till 290,000kms only problems I had were it needed an alternator around 150xxxkms and brakes twice.

$250 is my quote for the taillights, not even sure if that includes the dash and console lights that don't work as well.

25 Jun

Hazard light switch replaced because it caused electrical problems with turn signals.

8 Nov

I would like headlights that I could shut off if I wanted to,

13 Mar

We have only had small problems such as the hazard light/turn light problem, air conditioning blower not working on 1 or 2, and the window motor broke down.

29 Jun

The only things to have gone wrong were fan speeds 1 & 2 on the AC broke while under warranty, and the coolant light on the dashboard came on when it shouldn't have.

23 Jan

Bulbs blow out, a fortune to fix.

30 Nov

This car is a joke I have four set of brakes and rotors a new fuel injection and now it needs a new intake gasket and the signal lights work half the time and forget them working when it rains.

7 Feb

We've had a little trouble with the electrical system; the running lights dim and the heater loses strength on long trips.

26 Jan

Piston slap noise when started cold.

14 Nov

But because of the low RPM, you seldom hear any engine noise unless you are really standing on the gas.

21 Feb

The engine was built poorly, about a year after I had it, I had to fix an oil leak, my head gasket caught on fire, water pump broke, replaced roters, fix electrical wiring, fix gas pedal (sticking), idled high, very poor on gas, and made a clinking noise.

16 Sep

Original Firestone tires were junk, started making noise at 30,000 miles.

1 Aug

Problems with A/C also common and annoying clacking noise from engine.

MY TURN SIGNAL HAD A BUZZING NOISE AND AFTER 3 TRIPS TO THE DEALERSHIP THEY FINALLY FIXED IT AFTER I THREATENED TO SEE A LAWYER.

It has developed a squeak and groaning noise from the front suspension.

BRAKES,A/C,FUNNY NOISES FROM THE DASH, ARE JUST SOME OF THE PROBLEMS NOT TO MENTION HOW FAST THESE CARS DEPRECIATE!

12000 miles went rather peacefully a rattle from passenger airbag cover fixed by the dealer at no extra charge, brake rotors replaced at no extra charge The transmission oil went bad by 47000 miles and I could feel it while driving.

Automatic Transmission, had something replaced because it wouldn't shift into reverse sometimes.

23 Jan

Needs 5 minutes to warm up to even think of shifting.

With only 46,763 miles on my 2000 Malibu I didn't expect the transmission to go.

It rusted easy. I called my Lumina the "tank/snow plow/race car."

17 Jun

i have a 96 lumina and i love the car.

26 Dec

As it so happens, the mechanic told me that my intake manifold gasket was cracked which is a common problem with 3.1 V6 engines (i.e the lumina).

28 Jan

The engine started knocking real bad at 85,000 miles and would not go over about 30MPH.

24 May

The engine inexplicably started leaking oil within the first few months,

21 Feb

the engine moves it with some authority.

28 Nov
