1997 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Got a 1997 in April of 2001. I
found one with only 30K and got a
decent aftermarket warranty.(7 years or
100K miles bumper to bumper) Thank god
I paid the extra money for this
warrenty because in the past year its
only fun me about $200 to get over
$4000 of work done. The intire front
electronics system went out and I lost
all my speed sensors, power everything,
and the factory standard alttenator has
gone out 3 times. Even though this
stuff has happened I love this car.
Because of the V6 and heavier car its a
great ride and I have to drive 21 hours
to visit family and believe me its been
a life saver.

Best Features

Smooth ride, Sound system and over all a nice looking car.

Worst Features

Aftermarket altenator( every V6 Chevy I have dealt with has this same afflicition) and a little better quaility overall when built. A little would do alot.
