Since I buy Chevrolet Malibu 2017, so many faults are showing, First I had a problem with the engine and I replaced it on my own as the agent told me it's not covered, and that happened after 1 year of buying a brand new car. After that, I faced a heat problem and after I went to the agent he can't recognize the issues and they always force you to take the car out of the maintenance center. Later on, I have faced an issue with the transmission box - it's not changing between the speeds smoothly, and sometimes the transmission gets hacked and not moves to the next speed. In this case I need to totally stop and start driving again. Absolutely don't recommend and especially am not recommending Alghandi as an agent.

Malibu Hybrid

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles

I was driving 50MPH on the HWY when my car suddenly powered down. I had to move to the side before it came to a complete stop or I would have been stuck on the HWY that semi trucks use often. Luckily it was during a slow time or I would have stopped/slowed down in front of a semi going fast or another vehicle catching them off guard. So I was towed to the dealership and they saw that my engine light was on and eight different error codes came up. Nothing that pointed to why it would just power down. My car was in the shop for three days and I got it back just to turn around and take it back a day later when the engine light came back on. I was not going to let it stop on me again, so I took it right back to the dealership. It has been there since. The GM company kept sending the wrong tester to the service dept. causing a delay in finding the issue. Finally they sent the correct tester and found out that my Transmission is defective. Going on two months now since it needs a new transmission and it is on back order. The service dept. at the dealership has been great making sure I am in a loaner and keeping me up on what is going on. I just wish I didn't have to deal with this at all. I read through a lot of misc issues and they sound a lot like what I had experienced. This can cause a serious accident depending on when or where you are when it happens.
