The 2016 Malibu has gone through two of the little start stop batteries in the rear.This time I requested that the battery be left in my car - still useful likely for putting around the electronic workshop..Lo and behold on top of it is 'free 36 month replacement' - duh. The dealer charged me for a new one full cost. Got home from dealer after $49 charge to diagnose the 'check engine light' (also known as the $300 repair light) and a $300 bill to replace the battery..Now working with service tech there to get a refund. Battery lasted only 2 1/2 years. Like the first one. But....if you didn't get the battery back you'd never know! IT's squirreled away in a little compartment on the side of the trunk on the left side. It's a little Aux 12 155 CCA battery for 'start stop' operation.So I'm going to get a credit on credit card. t.
