i have a 2000 malibu and it has 129k miles on it. the anti-theft light has been on for months and i didn't know what the reason for this was, but it never seemed to affect my car in any way. today the car turned on fine twice, once coming out of the house and the second time coming out of the gas station. when i try to turn it on after leaving from a job interview, it cranks as if it wants to turn on but doesn't. it sounds like if the gas tank is on empty but it's almost full. i checked all connections and even tried a jump start and it didn't make any difference. finally i got it towed home and find out on the internet that chevy malibus are full of defects.(http://www.autosite.com/content/research/forums/index.cfm/action/posts/fid/1601) (including my ac that only works on 3, 4, and 5). my anti theft device won't let me drive my own car, and i already missed an important class. i've been trying to leave the ignition switch in the on position for a while until the anti theft light turns off, but it never turns off. it has barely started with this problem today, but after reading all of the complaints, more like horror stories, i'm scared of my malibu and i don't trust it anymore because i know it will get worse. i don't have the money to pay the dealer to fix an obvious problem that they know exists but won't admit to; there needs to be a serious recall. *tr

Fredericksburg, PA

i drove the car home from a friend's house about 3 miles turned it off and locked it using the remote. when i tried starting the car about an hour later , after unlocking it using the remote), the car would not start. it sounded like it wanted to start but just couldn't turn over. luckily, i have a mechanic in the family that suggested a problem with the anti-theft system. the problem was solved by turning the key to the on position for about 10 minutes to reset the system. as a result i ended up missing a very important meeting. every now and then the theft system light on dashboard popped on and then eventually went away. i didn't always have 10 extra minutes to spare just in case the car decided to do this. *ak
