Now have 70k on car. Had to replace brakes and rotors at 30k and 60k. Intake maifold gasket rplaced at 30k. Altenator replaced at 36k. GM says the car can go 100k between tune-ups, but check engine light came on at 69k. Complete tune-up required at that point. Water pump relaced at 68k. Original Firestones were crappy.
Nice over-all ride and pick-up. I have a LS V6. Stereo is nice. Nice highway performance. I would buy another Malibu if they improved the brakes
Brakes are HORRIBLE. I have 97 Corrola with 75k and have not yet had to to replace ANY of the above items including brakes
