1997 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this vehicle new in 1997 and have been very happy with it overall. With over 160K miles on it now it has performed well. The V6 engine and four speed automatic transmission are perfectly matched. Typical highway milage of about 29 MPG - not bad for the 170 HP V6. In typical GM style, this vehicle is not without it's problems. At 50K miles it needed a new torque converter and at about 80K a lot of new front end parts to tighten things back up. Replacement parts have lasted longer than the originals. All in all, this is still one of the best vehicles I have ever owned.

Best Features

Head room. 170 HP V6 & 4 speed trans. Automatic lights. Control placement. Single button 6-way power seat.

Worst Features

Side view mirrors vibrate at times. Tranmission and engine need to be more reliable. Glove box doesn't seat all the way closed - no adjustment.
