I bought the Malibu because it was
larger than the 1995 Cavalier and a
quieter ride, but I have many more
problems with the Malibu than I ever
had with the Cavalier. I am at 51,000
miles and about to replace the rotors,
which have warped for the second
time. The air conditioner keeps
switching off for no reason as does the
air re-circulation. In a heavy rain,
my brake lights shorted out. I'm
afraid I will be going a new direction
for the next new vehicle.
The ride is quieter than the Cavalier
and does have good pickup and go.
The rotors should be able to accomodate
the Malibu. The electrical system
should be revamped to prevent shorts
and faulty behaviors.
