Great quality car
By Mary on
2002 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
The interior is very good quality, material on seats very durable. I drove this car as a rental and then bought it when I needed to get a car because I liked it so much. I saw other reviews where they needed brakes after 15K miles, but I just got the front ones replaced at 43K, and the back ones are still OK, so I don't know. Only thing is the intake manifold gasket had to be replaced at 43K, which is sooner than normal on most cars, and I don't know the reason for that but apparently it's common.
I love the stereo system, great sound for factory stereo. Nice style on dashboard also. Fold down seats in the back, which instead of breaking in the middle, break about 1/3 of the way on one side and 2/3 on the other. Great so that someone can still sit in the back if you have the 2/3 side down.
