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

Review

In all honesty the 2003 Malibu has been fairly reliable, except for rotors. I made the mistake of getting the rotors machined back to smooth, all this did was to give the rotors a shorter life. Replace rotors if they are warped, do not machine. It's now in with a suspected fuel pump problem. The reason it's at the Canadian tire is I went to the local Chev dealer, and explained I had a loose connection on a wire leading to the fan motor, a simple repair, at $152. I was furious and got the bill reduced substantially. The air conditioning never worked satisfactorily from day one, it cooled but was never cold. The vehicle was just transport

Favorite Features

Nice design. Fold down flat back seats. Good power

Suggested Improvements

Beef up rotors on disc brakes. Fuel pumps need to get extended life. Give a one page exploded view of where filters, fuel pump, fuses etc, are located on the vehicle
