Thanks for your offer of help but the door ajar light and stereo were fixed under warranty, although it still cost me $323 for an "unscheduled" 30K maintenance service.
And when I thought the worst was over up comes yet another problem. Leaking transmission fluid. Dealer says new lines were ordered but were damaged in packaging. This will require yet another trip back to the dealer but thank goodness this is covered under warranty.
I've owned GM products (Oldsmobile) in the past but never had so many problems. With the new 2013 Malibu on the horizon I hope GM gets its act together and begin producing better quality products as I know they can.

Just replaced my original 225/50/18 Goodyear Eagles with B. F. Goodrich Advantage TA tires. I was satisfied with the Goodyears on my 2008 Saturn Aura, they lasted 32,000 miles and had 3/32 tread left. The Goodrich tires seem to ride smoother, but that may be due to fresher or more supple rubber. They are T rated, 650 treadwear rating, 75,000 mile warranty and they were made in the USA.
I couldn't pass up the deal, Sam's Club had them for $105 each which includes road hazard, free rotations and balancing. Installation was free, but that offer ended in April. Thats $453 out the door with 7% tax and $1 disposal fee per tire.

Oh dear, we just purchased an 08 Malibu to replace our 06 Ford F150 Lariat crewcab due to fuel consumption. Now we must figure on buying tires on a regular basis. Our Lariat had 46400 miles on original tires with good tread still remaining. Have we made a horrible trade? The government will surely overlook this issue since they own GM and gets away with not supporting working Americans.

I have a 2008 with 57000 miles on the original tires. Don't remember what they are just whatever came from the factory. I do watch the TP. We live in the hills of Arkansas so the tires get a workout on the twisty turnies of the Ozarks. Still good tread.

My new Malibu LT1 I just bought Monday has Firestone 710's on it -They seem to be fine - quiet and ride ok. I have had them before on other new cars. They have a 560 rating so they should wear well. I have had mixed results with Michelins. My Michelins on my Cadillac DeVille were fine and I replaced them with the same tires. The ones on my Odyssey were terrible -lots of blowouts, air loss etc and crappy mileage. I usually stick with original equipment tires and replace them with the same tires but I put Bridgestones on the Odyssey and my problems went away. Just because it say Michelin doesn't mean that it is good.

I am having trouble with my 2009 malibu's transmission. At end of March 2011 I had to have a NEW transmission installed because the old one was BAD at 35,850 miles!! Well NOW it is doing the same thing. I was wondering if any one else is having the same issues.
