#1 of 25 05 Malibu ?
Dec 11, 2008 (4:02 am)
I was wondering if any one could tell me if there is any recalls on a 05 malibu for the past year my powersteering will just go out on me and then I have to pull over and shut the car off and turn it back on and it is fine also for about the past month my gas gauge will start going nuts on me it will say it's full then empty and sometimes it will go past full and set off a code and I will get a cel and i reset the code and it is fine any help would be great .

Might be easier to read and understand if your run on sentence was broken down a bit huh?

Hey guys, has anyone had any trouble yet with the AC in your cars. I bought mine over a year ago and 3 monhts ago it started making loud screeching noises. Brought it to a Mechanic and he disconnected the AC unit, but it is going to cost me over $1200.00 to get it fixed. Also give or take once a month whenever I start the car, I get nothing in the way of lights, odometer, RPM gauge, radio, etc. Anyone have any advice?

first I would get a second estimate/diagnosis on the A/C......mine acted up a few times in the almost 7 years Ive had my 04 Maxx LT....it simply wouldnt cool.....all it took in my case was to turn the car off and restart it.....solved the problem...as far as the gauges...same think....probably less than a hand full of time same issue.....simply restarting the car solved the problem.....
you may need an ECM reflash or update....only the dealer can do that....as far as the AC goes....sounds like the compressor perhaps......but again...would get a second estimate....what does the 1200 buy you now?
#8 of 25 05 Malibu won't start
Jun 16, 2010 (4:20 am)
Purchased my malibu in 2005 and has worked great except for one problem, there are times where it won't start. Usually when it does happen it just takes one or two times of turning the key and then it starts. This has happened on and off since we purchased the vehicle. It has been into the dealer multiple times but since they aren't ever able to duplicate it they can't figure out why it is happening. Has anyone else ever had this problem and if so what did you do? I am afraid that the problem might be getting worse because today it took several minutes before I could get it to start up.

#10 of 25 Re: 05 Malibu ? electric power steering
Aug 13, 2010 (10:45 am)
my wife recieved a letter from CHEVROLET GM the other day that says it is extending the warranty on the electric power steering ON SOME 05 malibus for up to 10 years from the date the vehicle was put in service,or up to 100,000 miles and they will reimburse you if you can prove that you have already had it repaired/replaced.i don't know what the ON SOME means,it does't explain in the letter.we have not had any trouble with hers as of yet,it has 78K on it,but it is good to know we have a while longer on that.
