My Love/Hate Relationship with my Malibu
By lovenhateit on


1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


I bought my car used in 2002 with
27,000 miles. I am so glad I opted for
the extended warranty. The first thing
to go were the brakes, of which I was
warned. My A/C switch drives me insane
(have had it replaced once already), my
theft light randomly comes on when I
start my car, my windshield wipers move
at whatever speed they choose, and I
now have a mysterious humming sound
coming from the front right, which
according to other reviews, seems to be
the right front speed sensor/hub. I
have also replaced the fuel pump. I
however, haven't had intake manifold or
alternator problems..YET..What an
insult to take my car in for service
only to be told that it is common...
shame on GM...

Best Features

Despite all my gripes, I can't help but love this car. It is very comfortable and roomy, and I love little features like the driver side cupholder in the dash. No engine or transmission problems, in fact, it is very powerful and smooth.

Worst Features

To GM: If you have a problem - FIX IT and move on. Seems like it would save a lot of $$ for you (and us) in the long run.
