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

Review

Plan on replacing brakes and rotors every 22-24000 miles. Roughly $90, if you do it yourself. Lower intake manifold gasket went at 44,000 miles. I have found this is quite common, and look forward to replacing it at least once more before I can get rid of the car. If you are not a mechanic or know a good friend as one, expect to pay between $700-$1100. This will occur roughly every 40-50,000 miles. If you do not catch it in time, your engine will cease to run. Rear window motor is failing. It will roll down, but fails to travel back up. If you are considering purchasing a 97-2003 Malibu, I highly recommend against it. Perhaps you should buy a Ford Edsel instead.

Worst Features

Quit making expensive junk. Take a few risks on body styles. The new Cobalt, Malibu, Impala, Monte Carlo, Gto, G6 etc. etc. all look similiar. Build more performance versions. Interiors need upgrade from cheep plastics. Rattles and creaks are evident within 2 years of ownership on ANY new GM product
