2003 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've enjoyed my Malibu LS. The only problems I've been having lately are starting and staying charged up. And the radiator seems to run hot. But other than that I have enjoyed my vehicle. I would recommend it to anyone.

2003 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Stiff, uncomfortable seats. Lack of lumbar controls. Has a tendency to hestiate on start. Overall a good car. Could have better gas mileage and more comfortable seats.


Favorite Features

Standard features on LS and acceleration power


Suggested Improvements

Better seats, improved gas mileage. Better radio/sound system. Split/fold rear seat

2003 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this vehicle in 2004 for only $8,000. It was the best purchase I had ever made on a vehicle. I have owned a Mazda and Corsica and had nothing but problems. When I purchased this vehicle it had 17,000 miles on it and I was working at a state agency so I did a lot of traveling. I now have 83,000 miles on it and the only problem I had with it was a couple weeks after I got it the factory CD player stopped working but I was in a the process of getting a CD player installed anyways and all I have needed done is brakes changed twice and oil changes. Mechanically I have had absolutely no problems and it drives smoothly.


Favorite Features

I love everything about the vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

The only things I would ask for in the car is better ashtrays because they are hard to get in and out, power seats, and more cup holders.

I enjoy driving my Malibu because of the way it handles on the road. The interior is very nice and comfortable.

The automatic headlights and interior. It has a great get up and go.

A more updated stereo system, and better gas mileage.

Review

I've had numerous problems with this vehicle. So far, I've had the flywheel replaced due to noises when the vehicle started(this was one month into ownership), the entire fan/blower system replaced (one year into ownership, power steering gear replaced and lower intake gasket replaced (2 1/2 years into ownership). Now that I am out of warranty, the fan system that was replaced does not work - again. This is not to mention that this V6 vehicle has no power or pickup. I would not recommend that anyone buy a Malibu.
