This 2001 Malibu has proven to be a
smart purchase. Problems have been few
and of a minor concern (heater/AC fan
has 5 levels but only works at the
highest 3; the "door ajar" signal
sometimes goes off for no good
The sound system is very nice. The car
has considerable power although I have
only punched it to full throttle in
tight hwy passing situations. It takes
regular gas and averages about 25 in
town - 30 to 32 on long trips.
As stated above, fix the heater/AC fan
control and take care of that "door
ajar" alert that comes on for no good
