1997 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan

Review

I ran into maximum problems between 43K miles and 62K miles. Steering fluid leak - 43K miles Brakes wear out - 44K miles CV joint replacement - 47K miles Gasket leakage - 52K miles Another set of brakes - 53K miles Replaced alternator - 58K miles Yet another set of brakes - 62K miles. If you don't believe me, I have all the receipts. Surprisingly, after the last bout at 62K miles, it has run very well (knock on wood) and I now have 94K miles

Favorite Features

Decent engine (V6), Good interior room and Decent transmission.

Suggested Improvements

I have seen quite a few people complain about engine gasket leak; I hope GM looks into this seriously. Same with brakes wearing out too quickly.
