car   Coolant Leaking problem 1
Failure Date: 03/02/2015

Our 2006 chevy Malibu low coolant light came on. It was checked and coolant was put in the vehicle. It continued to come on. It was taken to our regular chevy dealer in March 2015 who misdiagnosed the problem and replaced the coolant reservoir. The low coolant light came back on and we were loosing more engine coolant in June 2015. It was taken back to our dealer. We were told it has a cracked head gasket and the leak is internal. The chevy dealer recommended the entire engine be replaced as a precaution because it has over 100, 000 miles. Our 2006 chevy Malibu have been maintained well and kept up with all maintenance. . And for the gasket to be leaking is beyond us. The leak could not be seen to the visible eye. The only way we knew their was a leak was because the low coolant light came on, which was the reason why we took it to the mechanic. We are disappointed with the misdiagnose of our vehicle and with the problem. The chevy dealer did refund us for the misdiagnose of the problem but nothing else was offered or done. Now we have to figure out what to do because we need our car.
