    I tell you, as long as you get oil changes and fluids changed frequently your car will run forever - Loving my Chevy Malibu Maxx and it still hits the freeway like a DAWG!!!!

    I have had this problem for a long time. Its disappointing to see that no one else has been able to get it fixed either.

    I drive a 2005 chevy malibu maxx ls and i have had every problem in the book. The simplest problem that i thought could be fixed isnt fixed. First speaking of the gas cap problem. The dashboard said to check the aftermarket one i replaced in 2012. I went to get another after market one in 2014 when the check gas cap light came on in the dash that locked and put it on. Then suddenly check engine light comes on!. Later i find my evap has a hole in it and then i just took off the new gas cap because it was obviously making things worse. If i knew chevy was a GM car i would have NEVER bought it. Im only toyota
