2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan

Review

I've had many of the problems mentioned
here - break wear, blower not working on
1 or 2, etc. My dealership would NOT
fix the brake problem under warranty.
They said it was due to 'normal wear and
tear', though I only had 30,000 miles on
it - probably 90% highway driving. Even
in 2000 everyone knew it was a design
issue, but they refused to cover it - so
it cost me $250.
The workmanship is pretty bad. The
cover keeps coming off the control panel
in the driver's armrest, the trunk liner
ripped away from the trunk, and the
cargo net hooks ripped out of the liner.
The gas tank is smaller than advertised
- they claim it's 15-gal, but it's more
like 12.5-13 gal.

Best Features

It's not a horrible car - besides the brakes, it just has lots of little issues. Go to Midas or CarX to get the lifetime brakes - it costs a little more ($350), but you get lifetime replacements.

Worst Features

No major problems, but the Malibu has been disappointing - I am not going to buy another one. Since GM does not honor the warranty on this car, I will probably not buy another GM product either.
