1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


Got my 98 Malibu as a company car. It's been a very reliable car! Only the routine maintenance (oil change every 3000 miles etc.), 2 brake jobs, 1 altenator, belts. Only one major repair, waterpump started to leak at 66000 miles and needed to replace. Overall I am quite happy with the car, my car now has 75000 miles. I live in Hawaii so I do not travel far, but the driving I do is a lot of stop & go. I think the constant idling of the car is worse than long distance driving.

Best Features

Great comfort for a mid-sized car. Super gas mileage, and the 4 cylinder engine has good power.

Worst Features

Better motor mounts on the vehicle. After driving it for 38000 miles, I started to noticed it idled a little rough. I've owned quite a few Chevys and I noticed the motor mounts will fail after a while. Could it be the short stop & go driving, and constant idling of the vehicle?
