1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan
Was great for about nine months, then little things started to happen. Check engine light came on. Took it to autozone for diagnostics and they told me it was a camshaft position sensor. Its acceleration improved after that. The starter failed me in December...which I fixed. The V6 does not give a do-it-yourself person much room to work around. The wheel bearing on the front right side became very noisy and had to be replaced. As far as minor annoyances: Vent selector knob broke (without abuse), the "ding ding ding" of the alert when you get in the car or are low on gas is very annoying, cornering isnt great, nor is mpg. It's an ok-good car. Not the best, nor the worst I've owned.
The space, adjustable steering wheel, keyless entry (on mine), decent acceleration,
GM needs to make vehicles that are good on gas. 25 mpg isnt good enough for me, nor the environment. Does it really need to weigh 3000 lbs? Manual trans. would be nice. Also,"dinging" alert sound is quite annoying. Could corner better, too... plus stock cd player skips
