Vehicle is leaking antifreeze out the intake gasket manifold causing the vehicle to overheat. Consumer will notify the dealer of the problem for repair. The vehicle was repaired at the consumer's expense. The consumer believes the component should be recalled to the amount of problems it exhibits.

I puchased this car with 20000 miles on it. I had it for a little over 5 months and I am replacing a fuel pump that will cost $650. The power steering has corrosion, so the power steering has to be flushed. Replacement of the fuel filter, a cracked fan belt, and throttle body service. I have the GM extended warranty, but it only covers the cost to replace the fuel pump. Everything else is out of pocket expenses because it is considered "regular maintenance". the brakes also grind and seem to take too long for the car to stop. So I think brakes aren't far behind to be replaced. I am hoping I will not need rotors too. I have read so many complaints about the brakes on the 2000 Chevy Malibu. I try to buy american because I am a proud one. But the quality seem to be substandard compared to Japanese cars. My next car will be foreign. Us car makers need to "step it up", as far as quality with these cars.

We own a 2000 Chevy Malibu. The heat/air regulator does not work until it is moved to three, four or five. It does not work on one or two. My brother owns 97 Malibu with the same problem and my sister has a 98 Malibu with the same problem.
