Not Like my 1980 Chevy Malibu
By Bill on


1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


Driving and handling were no problem - excellent as a matter of fact in acceleration, braking and handling curves. Gas mileage was better in my 1980 Chevy than the 1998 one. A/C switch was the first item to go, then the blower switch. Radio reception lasted about 3yrs. Went through at least 4 or 5 brake changes and recently have been taking on water in the trunk when it rains. When driving I feel cramped in (I'm only 5'8") - why can't Chevy make the Malibu like they use to???? My 1980 Malibu lasted for 20 years - great car!

Best Features

Driving and handling. Fold down back seat for added trunk space.

Worst Features

More room, better gas mileage, better quality craftmanship.
