1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


My wife and I purchased this car 6
years ago with much research and a
visit to the auto show. We've had some
problems here and there, master
cylinder, engine computer system
replacement, alternator. These repairs
were spread out over the six years.We
originally wanted a Camry but it would
have cost $24,000 compared to 18,500 we
paid for the Malibu. Even with the
above mentioned repairs, this car has
been excellent considering it's been
our only car. Both my wife and I drive
this car everyday and it gets driven
quite a bit every day. The gas milage
is still great, and highway performance
is excellent. Had we had a second car
this car would be in mint condition.
Still happy with this car.
