1999 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan
Bought this new and 2 weeks after
taking delivery had it back at the
dealer to have the inside roof (of all
things) repaired due to a loud noise.
Less then 6 months later it was the AC
switch, and then the tie rods and then
breaks (3 sets in 39k miles). One set
of new tires and a couple of other
minor things before the head gasket
went at 37k miles. Out of warranty...
Talked to the service manager and
complained about the poor quality of
these cars and he told me these
engines are notorious for blowing head
gaskets. Squeaking serpentine belt
replaced 8 times in 3 years. They'd
replace it, but never found the
problem for the reoccurring squeak.
Stylish, decent power.
Make a dependable car, that's all we
really want from an American Auto
