Please permit me to ask everyone to ASK the dealers first, as they are mostly good.
Problems can be addressed with Chevrolet uk, The Customer services director is mark cox, I am not sure if i can give out the e-mail address, but a bit of research would help anyone find it, the alternative is to google the MD chevrolet uk, or chevrolet europe. I have just received a courteous reply on the subject of my previous problems, and no I did not want compensation, just to get the problems dealt with. that has now happened, and if the malibu is brought here i will surely buy one, if not a cruze.
Happy motoring to all.
