1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought our '98 brand new. It seemed great. At 50,000 miles, a gasket leaked oil coolant into the engine and destroyed the entire engine with no warning($5,000.00). Jiffy Lube told us "Everyone knows Malibu gaskets do this after 50,000 miles." Internet sites confirmed the statement. The dealer and Chevy were very concerned and paid to replace the engine. Conscientous car builder or one who knows their product has a defect? ABS light comes on whenever it wants to, AC only works on #3. Not soured on Chevy, though. We have a 2002 Avalanche and love it to death!

Favorite Features

Gave it to our son- no more repair worries for us!

Suggested Improvements

Fix the darn ABS system and the leaky gasket situation!
