1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Thought I was getting a great package
with this car. Found out later this
car has many problems. First the fuel
pump, then problem with the pulleys
which destroyed my power steering
pump. Had to replace serpentine belt
twice. A/C control head went up and
dealership broke my CD player and
knocked a grommet loose in the
firewall which created a leak. One
disaster after another!! No problem
with brakes though. Latest problem is
the lower intake manifold gasket.
That'll cost $500+ to fix. Car only
has 50K miles on it!! I can't wait to
get rid of this piece of junk!

Best Features

Overall package is great on this car. So many extras come with it but doesn't make up for the mechanical problems.

Worst Features

Someone at GM needs to take responsibility for this poor excuse for a car. All they can say is, "If you didn't buy the extended warrany, we can't do anything for you." Nice way to stand behind your product!! I'll never buy another GM product.
