#2 - Suspension Noise problem of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
The vehicle involved was a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. The VIN of this vehicle is 1G1NE52J43_. I am currently experiencing loss of steering and suspension performance with my vehicle including significant loss of tire tread for my vehicle. The vehicle bounces and makes screeching sounds while steering a curve on the road. The vehicle was inspected in early March and no mechanical problem was observed or detected. A 4 wheel alignment was also done at a Chevrolet dealer a few months back and no problems were found or detected then. I have reason to believe that something is wrong with the mechanical operation of either the steering or suspension component of the vehicle. Kindly investigate and look into this problem. Thank you. This suspension noise problem happened on Monday, March 5, 2012.
