2000 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #8

Jan 292008


  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu. The contact stated that the turn signals and hazard lamps worked intermittently. In addition, the horn would not sound. He cannot use the turn signals to indicate his intent to turn the vehicle, which could result in a crash. The dealer stated that the VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 03V327000 (exterior lighting:hazard flashing warning lights:switch); therefore, he would have to pay $300 to have the component replaced. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 70,000 and current mileage was 85,000.

I have been having problems with my hazard lights as well as turning signals. They have been replaced since the last recall, but have went out again. I also have been having problems with my fuel line, such as my vehicle not wanting to accelerate, it seems that it idles at a intersection light with the RPM's going up to the 2 or 3 then acting as if it wants to shut off. I had the fuel line replaced not even thirty days after purchasing the vehicle. I purchased the vehicle Jan of 2000, and I did see some investigation concerning the fuel line months prior to the purchase. My vehicle stopped on the side of the highway, and my vehicle was towed to a chevorlet dealer outside of lansing near lake odessa. I at that time was not charged for this fuel pump which they did try to charge but because it happened within the thirty days they replaced the fuel pump at no charge. I do see on this site that this vehicle a 2000 Chevy Malibu has been investigated due to fuel problems so I hoping this was looked into properly and brought to the surface once again because my pump was changed in 2000 and has been giving me problem since 2002. I have had tune-ups, transmission changed, routine oil changes, fuel line cleaned, diagnosis ran, and the results are nothing I'm hoping to get to the bottom of this before taking any documentation to a lawyer concerning a matter that has been brought to the surface but nothing done about it. Also I've took this vehicle back to the dealer where it was purchased and they can't find anything wrong with it. The question they ask is whether the check engine light has come on or not. I have all sensors checked out and that not the problem, but my gas leaves fast and I have a hard time accelerating on the residential streets as well as the high way. I also have been having to change the fuses in order for my horn and cigarette lighter to work. So someone please look into this because it's getting worse. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,500 miles
1st issue: Vehicle horn not working at steering column. Replaced fuses under hood and still does not work. Horn does work when vehicle's panic alarm is sounded and when remote locks are activated. Will attempting to get vehicle fixed but concerned about previous recalls for electrical problems with this vehicle. 2nd issue: This vehicle is equipped with an automatic headlights on/ off sensor. This sensor appears to have failed from the first few months I have owned this vehicle. Daytime running lamps never activate. The nighttime headlamps are always on when ignition is on.

Per consumer vehicles' horn intermittently will not work. This is unsafe, cause horn may not work in an emergency situation, hich can result in an accident.
