1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought this Malibu used as a second car for work because of its attractive price and great standard features. I thought I got a steal, but I've since changed my mind. Three months after purchasing this car, which had new pads at the time, they had to be replaced. Three months later the ABS light came on- needs a new sensor which requires a complete hub assembly: $500. Check engine light came on- needed wiring replaced: $100. AC started to act up- needed new control panel: $250. Based on what I've heard it sounds like I'm just seeing the tip of the iceberg on this one. Good thing my other car is an import.
Favorite Features
Strong engine, great visibility. Enough curb appeal to get by.
Suggested Improvements
Quality Quality Quality. I live in a blue collar GM town, but the Honda factory is only an hour up the road, and I haven't heard of these kinds of problems with the Accord.
