#1 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
The car involved was a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. Started having problems starting my car, theft light would come on and I would have to sit and wait to get the car started, very annoying problem having to play a waiting came to start your car. Then one day I was driving and the car just shut off in the middle of the high way, I had no idea the car was even off until I tried to acclerate or turn because the radio remains on. Have to stop and put my hazzards on and start the car again, some days it does repeat stalls which causes me to almost get hit by cars behind me (very very dangerous), some days it drives fine. Then one day while shutting my car off and returning home the horn started honking and would not turn off for about a 1/2 hour, and after that it hasnt worked again. Took the car in to the shop because im fed up and they said it is all linked to a faulty pass key/anti theft system that causes these electrical problems. Did some research and noticed this is and has been a reaccuring problem in the Malibu's. This issue happened on May. 1, 2013.

#2 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu
The vehicle involved is a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu. I purchased my car in Feb. Of 2012 as of today my car has been in the shop 10 different times for the same thing. The steering vibrates when you drive and it loses power when shifting. Then, I had to get a new motor in the car may 2013, then it was rattling again so I took it up there. They told me that the transmission problem was that it needed a program upgrade and that I had to pay out of pocket 60. 70 for this upgrade. Two days later the whole car shuts down on me and they are now saying that it is an app module and it needs to be re-programed. I am tired of paying all this tow bills and fees for a car that does not run and it not safe for my kids to ride in. It was March 8, 2012 when this engine shut off without warning issue occurred.

#3 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
The car is a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu classic. My daughter was driving her car and for no reason the car just shuts off. This has happened 3 times in the last weeks. The car also on 6 occasions would not start(has brand new battery) won't turn over, my daughter has been stranded several times. After a $400. 00 fuel pump replacement , which after it was replaced the car , other cars which are just shutting off while they are being driven. This is very dangerous to lose all power while driving!. And as well there have been numerous car owners who have replaced fuel pumps, which did not solve the problem. The car now has had the ignition replace as the mechanics "think:"its the security system!. To date the repairs are hitting $1,000. Also the turning signals, radio and a/c all work intermittently. I am no mechanic but seems there is electrical/security systems issues with these cars. The forums are loaded with car owners having the same issues! but of course they are so varied that most not reported to you!and we all know the garages don't report all issues! thanks for your help!. It was Aug. 2, 2012 when this engine shut off without warning issue occurred.

#6 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu maxx. The car will shut down without warning. I have experienced this when accelerating, braking, and when driving down the road with neither acceleration or braking. I have researched this on line and it seems like a lot of people are experiencing this with no known resolution to the problem. Every incident where I see it reported, the individual has not had a fix. The first incident was 3 weeks ago, then last night, and again this morning. If this were to happen in the middle of an intersection people would get hurt. Personally I plan to buy a new car because I do not feel that Chevrolet dealership will provide a fix. This problem occurred on 12/26/2009.
