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

Review

Bought this car in early 2011 for 1000 bucks with 148,000 miles on it.....once I dropped a couple hundred into it was like a gift from the heavens. Car drives very well, excellent gas mileage about 23 combined, very dependable, torquey V6 engine. Has a very boring interior design and the exterior started losing paint and rusting very badly after only 2 months of driving. The engine then melted through both intake manifold gaskets and sprang a very bad leak, The alternator blew and the fuel line began leaking. Luckily a few days in my garage and alot of tears and sweat she ran like a dream again. Recommend as a great first car or just as a daily driver.

Favorite Features

The 3100 SFI V6 engine, very torquey for such a small engine, Very stylistic sedan design.

Suggested Improvements

Realistically, could use a more powerful V6 or at the very least a more fuel efficient base option 4 cylinder engine, and also this severe problem with melting intake manifold gaskets. An maybe a performance version.
