2000 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased new. Now 42,000 miles. Starts, runs, everything works. Good balance of size, interior, price. Very tight steering system and corners well. Can do a fairly long road trip with out comfort issues. Dealer has been very good. Had some problems early on. Replaced an engine(3.1L) due to knocking (bad pistons, damaged cylinder) Replacement engine clatters like a diesel when cold but doesn't seem to be an issue when warm and apparently still goes many miles. Gets great mileage 32 mpg highway. Original Firestone tires were junk, started making noise at 30,000 miles. Even though rotated at 6,000.Have not seen the brake problems I hear about.

Favorite Features

Steering system, interior features(cup holders, pockets,etc)

Suggested Improvements

Give me head lights I can turn off when I want to. Fix the noisy cold motor. Better yet, give it a little more horsepower. Offer an interior without console.(I'd rather have room than look sporty) Give it some decent tires when new.
