1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan

Review

FRONT END HAS ALWAYS BEEN UNBEARABLY NOISY. HAD FRONT END WORK TWICE. HEADLIGHTS LEAKED FROM DAY ONE, REPLACED AND THEY STILL LEAK. ABS LIGHTS COME ON EVERY NOW AND THEN. CD PLAYER SKIPS CONSTANTLY THROUGH THE HOLE SONG. STEREO LIGHTS HAVE BURNED OUT. ENGINE HAD COOLANT LEAK, AND POWER STEERING PUMP WENT , MAJOR REPAIR COST OVER $1800 TO FIX GASKET AND PUMP. ENGINE IS A BIT NOISY. TRANSMISION CLUNKS GOING FROM PARK TO DRIVE OR REVERVE, BUT OTHERWISE SHIFTS FAWLESSLY. ACCELERATION IS PRETTY GOOD AND CORNERING FEELS GOOD. PAINT IS SOFT AND SCRATCHES VERY EASILY. AIR CONDITIONER TURNS ON AND OFF WHENEVER IT FEELS LIKE IT. AIR IS NOT COLD.

Favorite Features

HANDLES VERY WELL, EXCEPT FOR THE TERRIBLE FRONT END NOISE ON BUMPY ROADS.

Suggested Improvements

REDESIGN FRONT SUSPENSION, QUIET DOWN ENGINE, BETTER QUALITY STEREO, LEAKPROOF HEADLIGHTS, LONGER LASTING POWER STEERING PUMP AND BETTER JOB ON ENGINE GASKETS.
