1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan
Review
I 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.
Favorite Features
Inexpensive. Relatively roomy. 2.4L 16V Quad 4 engine is eager to go ( although a bit noisy) and so far has been maintenance free.
Suggested Improvements
Better quality all around, although it seems that the later models (post 2000) have much better quality ratings. Maybe GM learned.
