Nice design but poor reliability

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

Review

I really enjoy driving this car, but the reliability has been very poor. This year/model apparently has a very poor brake design. The car's brakes had to be replaced 4 times in 64000 miles (including new rotors on 3 occasions). Other reviews describe the brake problems in more detiail. Have also had numerous problems with the engine including a bad head- gasket, thermostat, and other random issues. Have also had problems with the AC switch, the blinkers, and the windshield wipers. Despite the comfort of the car the reliability makes this car a real bummer.

Favorite Features

Good acceleration, comfortable seats, moonroof

Suggested Improvements

Must improve the reliability on everything from the engine to the various switches in the car. Absolutely must fix the braking system (which I think they have probably addressed on later models).
