Malibu 6-cyl

  • 141,600 miles


On Sept. 29, 2010, I bought a 2000 Chevy Malibu in NY from a NJ dealer, the next day I noticed the check engine light on, so I took the car to a mechanic who told me that there was an issue with the gas emissions. I paid him to do a special emissions gas treatment, the check engine light remained on. The same car also has exterior lighting issues (the turn signals sporadically work and suddenly stop without warning and the emergency blinkers won't work either), I am submitting this because it is possibly related to the recall gas tank issues of this make, model and year car. Today when I contacted Chevrolet recall 800-630-2438 they informed me that the recalls are VIN specific and that my car's VIN # is not on that list and that they can not fix my car. "?"

I have 2000 Chevy Malibu with 108,000 miles. Purchased it with about 78,000 miles on it. When purchased I started having problems with ignition getting stuck and not turning so I replaced it. Ran fine for a little while and then wouldn't start one day. Was told that it wasn't getting fuel so I replaced the fuel pump. Ran fine for a little while then won't start again. So this time I take to mechanic. He said that my that I may need to replace my ok I did hoping it would fix this problem. Again it happens..I notice the theft system light is on and won't go off. I take back to mechanic and they hookup to computer and get a code that says my passlock system has error and I need to take to dealership so they can take off. I took to dealership and they said I was missing some turntables in my ignition so they added a few more and sent me on my way saying that should fix problem. Next day won't start again!!! I have to turn key to acc and leave on for 10 minutes..turn key off when light finally go away and then it will start. Having been left stranded over 100 times with a 2 year old I may add in 20 degree weather and also in 90 degree weather..its really scary! unreliable and quite frankly very unsafe!!!

Brakes on vehicle have been replaced three times in past year. Contacted dealer, and there was not much dealer could do. Also, gas guage failed twice. The passenger seat recliner was damaged. The electric out let broke and A/C heating system failed.
