1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan

Review

My employer picked up this car in September 2001 and it's been a nightmare ever since. Right from the start, something was dysfunctional in the heating system, so no heat blew to the feet. (And, being from Manitoba, you need all the warmth you can get in winter!) Eventually, that cost nearly $1000 to fix. Then, at 100K, the head gasket gave out (coolant into oil pan, etc.). Another $1000 repair. At 200K, the intake manifold gasket bit the dust - another $1000 gone. Stay away from this car! The heating system is awful, the glove box falls out & the seats are intolerable for anything but short trips. I'd rather take my 1992 Camry than this car anywhere any day! Parts are expensive.

Favorite Features

Not bad gas mileage for a V6. Stereo is not bad. My wife likes the variable sound level.

Suggested Improvements

Build a quality car. These cheap throw away cars are what drove GM to bankruptcy. Employers - don't make your employees drive Chevys!
