2007 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #3

Malibu ES 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


We purchased our Malibu used from a Chevy dealer and purchased an extended warranty. We noticed that the paint was cracking and took it to the dealership where we purchased it. The said it was "Crazing" a problem when the paint is applied to thick. It has now started breaking off and the top of the car is now rusting. They said the cracking was not covered but corrosion is. So I am going to return to the dealer and make them fix it

Malibu V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles

back in feb. i noticed the paint starting to blister on the back of the trunk. i took to dealer built since the warranty was up they said they weren't going to do anything. i called the 800 number in the car manual. they checked with the dealer. again the bottom line was that they weren't going to do anything about it. i contacted them on-line and again , no help. i asked them if it wasn't a problem they did anything wrong, then tell me what i did wrong, again i didn't get an answer. has anybody out there had a problem like this with their 2007 Malibu?
