Bought my '98 Malibu used in
late '01. Thought it was great at
first. The brakes squeal very loudly
and they don't need to be replaced.
Had the coolant leak but fixed it w/
leak stopper thing. AC button is VERY
annoying. And at 41,000 miles the
engine blew. Very unexpected and a
bad let down. Have a 2000 Malibu
engine, but still having problem w/
cracks in the air plenum. Don't
recommend this car anymore. And I owe
more than it's worth. :P
