When I first looked at the Malibu it seemed that it was a great deal for a fairly reliable car. Unfortuneatly, I didn't research it very well ahead of time. Since purchasing the car I have had 2 MAJOR problems. I have had the fuel manifold leak engine fluid into my oilpan and was unable to get the problem diagnosed properly until I suggested that the problem might be the manifold, and I have a big electrical problem where my turn signal somehow got crossed with my CD player and brake electronics. It was very strange because when I would put on my brakes, my turn signal would start up, or if it was already on, would skip of few blinks. Overall, be careful and make sure you get a warranty.
- Low Cost - Fuel Efficient
- Interior's design - Electrical system (still have cd problems even after service) - Transmission (sometimes skips gears even with auto) - Overall feel (more stiff and bumpy ride, not very enjoyable)
