1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


This car currently has about 116,000 miles on it and we are the only owners. It was purchased brand new back in 1998. I have some very mixed reviews on the car over all. Mostly with areas of suspension, A/C control and ABS light. We also had a the CD player replaced while it was still under warranty. The body of the car has done well over the past nine years and the engine just recently started giving us trouble. We have a coolant leak into the engine. Overall I give the car a fair rating. I probably would not buy another one.

Best Features

Car gets very good gas mileage and handles well on the road especially in winter time. It is also a very spacious car and can hold a lot on trips. Interior of the car has held up well especially with having two kids.

Worst Features

We have had the A/C switch replaced twice in the car while under warranty. Yet we still have problems on 1 and 2 setting. We have had a couple of struts replaced, a wheel bearing and tierod replaced before 60,000 miles. The ABS light also goes on and off from time to time.
