1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


Got my 98 Malibu as a company car. It's
been a very reliable car! Only the
routine maintenance (oil change every
3000 miles etc.), 2 brake jobs, 1
altenator, belts. Only one major
repair, waterpump started to leak at
66000 miles and needed to replace.
Overall I am quite happy with the car,
my car now has 75000 miles. I live in
Hawaii so I do not travel far, but the
driving I do is a lot of stop & go. I
think the constant idling of the car is
worse than long distance driving.

Best Features

Great comfort for a mid-sized car. Super gas mileage, and the 4 cylinder engine has good power.

Worst Features

Better motor mounts on the vehicle. After driving it for 38000 miles, I started to noticed it idled a little rough. I've owned quite a few Chevys and I noticed the motor mounts will fail after a while. Could it be the short stop & go driving, and constant idling of the vehicle?
