2000 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

2000 Chevrolet Malibu. The contact stated the hazard warning signals and turn signals stopped working. First it was intermittent, and then they just stopped. The contact found a recall online. But, this vehicle was not part of this recall due to VIN. This problem started two months ago. The dealership replaced the hazard switch, the wires, and the connector. This fixed the problem.

Replaced hazard warning switch due to turn signals not operating. There was a recall for the 2000 Chevy Malibu. My VIN numbers did not match up.

This vehicle was purchased by an individual for my son as a first car. Low miles and low price. When we recieved the title we found out that it was a salvage vehicle. My son being the teenager he was just excited to have four wheels never mentioned to us that the turn signals worked intermittingly. When we purchased another vehicle for my son for graduation, I started to drive the 2000 Chevy Malibu and noticed the turn signals doing this. Then I noticed the hazards were doing the same intermittingly working. I made an appointment at the Chevy house to get the problem fix and at the time from a friend found out about a factory recall for cars of this make and model with the same problem. When I went in they searched using the VIN # and said they could not help. Approximately 1 hour later I called the cheverolet company. At first they gave me a number and a code for a special policy complaint. Then after 25 minutes of my time he informed me that nothing could be done to fix the vehicle because it was a salvage vehicle. This is a factory defect. It had nothing to do with the vehicle being a salvage vehicle. If that is the case then why do state departments even allow these vehicles on the road. I just need the turn signals and hazards fixed so no innocent people will be hurt at any point. I can take this vehicle in for a diagnostic test also so it can be tested for this. I need this fix but it shouldn't be at my expense.

GM has a recall on Chevrolet Malibu's year 2000 (hazard light switch replacement) I have a Chevrolet Malibu year 2000 with a faulty hazard light switch, but Ms. Gay miller of Chevrolet customer service said, "your VIN wasn't included in the recall." Help me to understand why you would repair some faulty hazard light switches on Chevrolet Malibu's year 2000 but not all Chevrolet Malibu's year 2000 with faulty hazard light switches.
