2001 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Many small problems as stated in previous reviews. Also had MAJOR problems around 50K. Starter failed, Intake manifold gasket failed, and then the engine failed. Even the key fob is poorly designed because you can easily set off the car alarm accidentally. Overall, the 2001 Malibu is a very unsatisfactory car ownership experience. The rapid depreciation tells the story quite well, because the free market effectively values the car for what it is worth (not much). I could not recommend a Malibu to anybody, and will be buying a Japanese or Korean brand next time around.

Favorite Features

Any features unique to the Malibu quickly fade in importance when you have as many problems as I have had with GM Chevy Malibu.

Suggested Improvements

Plain and simple -- IMPROVE THE QUALITY.
