I am contemplating on purchasing a 2009 Malibu but, I am worried that the faults/problems that I am currently having with my 2006 Pontiac G6 may also develop with the Malibu since they share the same platform.
Most of the problems with my G6 appeared in year 2 & 3 of ownership. Problems are as followes:
Electric steering failures (still not fixed properly after 2 motors replaced & 3 columns fitted)
Catalytic converter plugging up (internals melted)
Front struts failed prematurely – just after the 60000 Km warranty (45000 miles) expired
Brakes wear out too quickly.
Battery failed after 2 years

Please advise if anyone has had any problems – as listed above.
The G6 is a nice driving car – but it has been plagued with major problems, mainly the steering. When the steering fails, you cannot steer very well & has locked up completely at times. I don’t want to make the same mistake again
