Malibu 6-cyl

I bought my 2000 Chevy Malibu from rod and ty's all star auto in puyallup, wa on 7/5/05. I bought the extended warranty/repair insurance. I have put over $600 of repairs into my car, only to find out that I need a new fuel pump, which is another $756.26 and the warranty people will only pay $425 for a substandard part. I also have some wires I need to have replaced, the A/C has never worked, even though they told me it did, the cd player destroys my cds and sometimes just won't play them at all, and I have a squeaky sound coming from the steering or suspension on the front end of my car. I paid over $13,000 for this car when it was 5 years old and had 74K miles on it (I got screwed) and now all these problems are coming up on it. The even cr*ppier part is, I still owe $9000 on it and it's only worth $2500 on trade in. What the heck am I supposed to do with this lemon piece of cr car" I'm super angry and will never buy another american car ever! by the way, I checked carfax and 11 records came up for this car! should I pay the $19.99 to find out about my car, or is 11 records pretty normal? should I worry"!

Vehicle would jump when trying to stop. Rotors were warped. Consumer had to put on 5 sets of rotors since Jan 2001. Contacted dealer who wanted consumer to extend warranty. The consumer stated that the front rotors are warped causing brake pulsation. The A/C does not flow out of the correct vents due to A/C control failure, the A/C control head also shorted out. The door was hard to open and close due to the lock being misaligned. Engine makes a clunk noise. While driving the vehicle surges. Left rear speaker shorted out. There is a clicking noise coming from the front when turning, consumer later stated that there was a chirping noise coming from the steering column.

I bought my 2000 Malibu brand new in September 1999.... my engine was pinging and making all kinds of noise, even when warm.... brakes are very hazardous to public safety... I have been to the dealer numerious times for rotor and pad replacements and even GM's so called new thicker and improved rotors they installed on my car was just as bad as all the other ones... I almost lost control of my car when I was traveling 65 miles per hour on our local highway when I was almost had a wreck due to complete failure of my brakes... my car vibrated so badly and did not slow all!!....I thought I had 2 front tire blowouts... I pulled over on the expressway and my tires were fine it was my brakes...... I went straight to a local autozone and purchased new rotors and pads....GM needs to issue a recall asap before someone gets seriously injured or killed!......I have called GM and made a complaint and was told no recalls were made..... another issue im having is it takes 3 or 4 times to get my car started... not sure why my car is having all of these problems but it is at a local GM dealership as I type this.......I hope they will be able to fix the noise from the engine and my cd player that goes in and out of power and sometimes wont release my cd's.... I have given up on GM brakes.
