2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Review

If you buy this car with basic features inside and outside, but you surprisingly get 33 MPG on the highway, you overlook some of the small discomforts you experience in the ride. This has been the most reliable and inexpensive car I've ever owned.


Favorite Features

It has more quickness than you expect from a Malibu


Suggested Improvements

Better brakes that don't need to be replaced every 15,000 miles.

Review

I have had my Chevy Malibu for 4 years and have had no problems. It is safe and has a lot of power. I had a choice between a ford taurus and a Chevy Malibu and I am happy with my choice, The MALIBU!


Favorite Features

Power, safety, sound system, it's a quiet ride and the V6 engine.


Suggested Improvements

Don't have any!

Review

Front panel electrical system has been a chronic problem. Blower has had to be repaired 3 times. Intake/Recirc is now broken. Bulbs blow out, a fortune to fix. Brake repair and battery replacement. NOW, the car's transmission will not shift in the cold weather. Needs 5 minutes to warm up to even think of shifting. Repair shop says all these problems are KNOWN issues with this car. Cheve Customer Service was HORRIBLE. Quote: "Once you buy the car, it is your problem". Dealer sold me a warranty, now the warranty company is bankrupt and the dealer said it is my problem.


Favorite Features

cup holders.


Suggested Improvements

electrical system, brakes, transmission. You name it.

Review

After owning it for less than a year the a/c switch would not stay on. Luckily that was covered by the warranty. May2003- the head gasket seal blew - goodbye $900! July 2003- the turn signals quit working and the fan would only blow on settings 3, 4, and 5. Bye, bye another $300. January 2004-the radiator cracked and leaked onto the belt, ADIOS to a grand! This doesn't even include the 3 sets of brakes and new rotors that I've put on the car. I can't afford to live this way! $2200 is seven months is too much to pay for a car that is only worth twice that. Next time I'm buying a Honda!


Favorite Features

I love the leather seats and the sunroof. They're the reasons I bought the car.


Suggested Improvements

$$$$$, brakes, engine and cooling system.....what more can I say?
