Money Pit!
By yuckmalibu on


1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


A lot of same complaints. Replaced
brakes, pads & rotors 4 times in 80K.
Wiper arm broke of during use.
Manifold gasket leaked coolant into
engine. Control arms replaced.
Replaced right wheel hub bearings -
left ones going bad. Air conditioning
switch only worked on 3. ABS light
came on for no reason. Sunroof went
offtrack twice. Traded for a Honda
when the onboard computer failed. Had
enough of dumping money into the car!
Standard "aging" repairs, no problem.
Major repairs over & over - problem.
Problems always met with silence by
dealer. Will never buy a GM product

Best Features

Picked up and cornered well.
