I own a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu and my complaint is that the trunk does not stay up in the air on windy days or sometimes by just putting groceries into the trunk. I can not recall the amount of times myself or another person has been hit on the head with the trunk lid. I find this to be very dangerous and think the some sort of hydraulics (like in most hatchbacks) should be installed.
This complaint stems from the time I have had this car. A popping noise that comes
from the rear of the vehicle from either both the trunk area and or suspension, a
hollow sound not very loud though. It happens on uneven surfaces at very low speeds. I brought the car to the dealer four times and sometimes the sound or sounds are noticed but nothing is done,except for lubrication. Sometimes it is hard
to duplicate and at other times it can. Also it never happens at highway speeds. Only slow speeds and on right or left turns. I hope that the engineers can discover it. The car is a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu. VIN 1g1nd52joy6211245. The car is still under warranty.
