Good powertrain,bad attention to details

Vehicle1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan
ReviewI bought my very basic 4-cyl. Malibu in 2/98 brand new, and had a lot of trouble initially with the warping brake rotors unitl Chevy finally put on a new set. Other problems include the infamous rear suspension creaks (which were never permanently fixed, I just got used to the noise) and the A/C switch. At 82000 miles, the 2.4L engine and transmission still perform flawlessly, which is the car's one saving grace.
Best FeaturesInexpensive. Relatively roomy. 2.4L 16V Quad 4 engine is eager to go ( although a bit noisy) and so far has been maintenance free.
Worst FeaturesBetter quality all around, although it seems that the later models (post 2000) have much better quality ratings. Maybe GM learned.
