While driving the a/c stopped blowing cold air, the car started to overheat, the various lights on dash were lighting up and the car died at an intersection. The car has 40,148 miles; the air conditioning compressor froze snapping the serpentine belt. Per the repair invoice: locked up compressor clutch 3. 00 diagnose, replace a/c compressor, evacuate and charge a/c, replace serpentine belt, clean a/c filter. The total cost of this repair was $1169. 35. Should this part cease to work at only 40,000 miles?.

car   Engine Belts And Pulleys problem 2
Failure Date: 03/03/2010

I have a 2006 chevy Malibu that I bought in sacramento CA. Via paul blanco dealer on franklin and florin rd. (they are no longer in business at that site). The car accelerates dangerously when on cruise control. The car began overheating immediately after purchase (oil lube place detected an engine gasket that needs to be replaced because it continues to overheat; unless I keep the heater and or ac going; the steering column had to be re greased and re-adjusted at firestone a few months ago because all of a sudden it would lock. The a/c compressor immediately went bad after purchasing this car. I had to buy another one which cost a good amount! soon after purchase (used vehicle with approx. 10,300 miles) the brakes went out and had to be replaced! in Jan. 2010, I noticed the seat belt light kept coming on, even after it was locked in (which is very dangerous because I don't know when and if its going to keep me safe when driving); erc. Etc. . I need someone to contact the dealer of chevy so that owners can go get these things checked out and fixed the right way. I attempted to call the numbers given warranty etc. And nothing was resolved.
