3.1 L V-6 Disaster for GM
By 3.1 L V-6 Disaster on


1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


Bought car new in 1998. Many repairs right from start. Fuel injectors, AC switch,4 Break pads, alternater, Lower manifold gasket ($650), more fuel injectors, purge valve, fuel pressure regulator, trottle control valve.GM should junk this motor before it drives them and me into bankrupcy. My next car will be foreign like my friends who laugh at me. I have 63000 miles

Best Features

Car has a nice acceleration and handles well.

Worst Features

The motor is an insult to American engineering. GM should have done better.
