1999 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan

Review

The Good - The Malibu is a very fun car to drive. It handles well on the highway and gas mileage is good. The car has good excelleration especially when you need to pass another car. Interior extras are very nice. Lots of trunk space. Good sound system The Bad - Reliability. The transmission needed to be pulled at 4500 miles due to a faulty switch causing the car to switch gears too soon. After 33000 miles I have had two leaky intake manifold gaskets (coolant & oil) replaced. Seems to be going through serpentine belts too quickly (every 16,000 miles). ABS light intermittently comes on. I am glad I have an extended warranty.

Favorite Features

Front bucket seats are comfortable. Very nice CD/Tape/AM/FM Radio system. Lots of luxury items were standard. Nice smooth excelleration and smooth ride.

Suggested Improvements

More reliabale Engine. Do not use Firestone tires (large tread cracks at 26000 miles). Driver side cup tray is in a bad location.
