    Hey there, Gen5diy uses Chris from here for their services: It is basically two hundred bucks. He did mine and several others here on the forum. Here is a good post from our friend who always had 2 more...
  2. 2013 Malibu Sunroof Drain Clog?

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    Yes, it's possible to get that much water from either a clogged drain tube(s) or stretched/disconnected tubes. When I had the issue, you could see slight "water mark" stains on the RF column. There are 4 drain tubes for your model. Someone has posted a PDF picture depicting the locations on the...

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    Yes, her's is white, and mine is Silver Ice like my Malibu. I was on the fence, for the 2.0T and then the two dealers in my area didn't have the GM NAV, color, and Sunroof options that were highly prioritized. Then the thought of paying 27 cents a gallon more for gas turned me, for the final...

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    The biggest change noted so far is the lack of - how do you explain this....lack of comradeship....31+ views and no welcome type stuff at the new venue...and no double DD's, CP-Nerds; or others; even "old" owners like Bill to say a simple Hi....Thus, again, I must say, the Chevy Malibu Forum...

    I just knew that you were gonna say that! Anyways, here's my new ride I got even though it can't carry a bunch of 2 x 4/6/8 or 10's (8Ft long) with the back lid closed...used to love my neighbors reaction pulling out big stuff that a truck normally carrys...This SUV requires the back lid to be...

    That reminds me that I signed up for the "Lifetime membership". Can I transfer this one over to the Equinox section?

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    Like my subject says, I will miss you all. Definitely enjoyed this forum. Just picked up a new Chevy Equinox LT - Silver with most of the bells and whistles yesterday, after occasionally driving my wife's after she picked up a slightly 'higher trim' than mine. Glad my Gen 8 went 46,378 miles...

  12. Remote Start Addition

    Gen 9 Modifications
    You're right, it is not intuitive finding stuff here. This other user was able to get his dealer to reprogram the new FOBs for cheaper, so I would inform your dealer that you seeing much lower costs nation wide. Cheers.

  14. Entertainment system change up

    Gen 8 Modifications
    Yeah, I believe two other guys looked into it. I can give you/sell you a complete LT harness if you want to proceed for 5 bucks. It has the blue connectors you need. B/c everything needs to be programmed, I doubt without some serious adult supervision it's workable though...

    Auto Industry/General Motors News
    Update: The Equinox can't corner "Half the speed as a 13 Malibu" wearing 50 series shoes, and just so you know...since it costs the same...let your children understand that...(Literally...A 2019 was almost totaled less than 30 minutes ago..) - Grateful this evening...CPS
