This car has many problems. The signal light don't work all the time, car horn does not work, always needs pws fluid, security sensor malfunction causes car to lock up wont start or do anything (this can happen anytime anywhere ...good luck in court if that malfunction happens on a busy highway) ... the list can go on and on...Many other owners of this make & model are having the same trouble recall this car! I will NEVER own another chevy!

P.s the steering has locked up twice and been replaced and still clunks so the two most important safety features have had problems steering and brakes so enjoy

Do you drive a 2004 CHEVROLET MALIBU?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
