Brakes, front end, A/C just plain poor
By JAH on
1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan
Bought new. Price was right and seemed
nice at the time, reviews were good.
However, have replaced brakes too many
times to count-calipers, rotors, pads-
the works. A/C switch turns on-off at
random; fan doesn't work on 1 and 2.
Control arms clunk on every bump. Bad
power lock switch design. Paint
scratches easily. Fit of glove box
poor. Original tires were terrible.
Decent car if it didn't eat up brakes.
Rides nice and highway mileage is
good. Ride and handling improved after
going to better tires.
Redesign power lock switch; too easy to
lock yourself out. GM put out junk on
the brakes and then just left them that
way. End of the line for GM and me.
