1999 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchaced this car in Nov 1999.
Since I have had it there has been
some unwarranted repairs. The
manifurctures front rotors warped
within a year. Because of that, I had
to replace tires as well. Antenna
doesn't pick up stations well.
It has been reliable, though. NO SUPER
COSTLY ($800+) repairs needed. It is
quite peppy for a 4-door sedan.


Best Features

Leather seats. They are easy to clean and maintain. Peppiness of the car. It can move for a $20,000 car. Excellent ABS.


Worst Features

Better handling. Better economy in the long run.

Review

the engine is advertised to last
100,000 before changing the spark
plugs. don't beleive it. this engine is
built on theory. the designers don't
even know how to fix them. my engine
has 55,000 miles and i already have to
have it replaced. I change my oil and
did everything GM suggest. this car is
a Looser. GM built a good car with a
low grade engine. Be ready to spend
repair money. Rating = 3


Best Features

nice ride


Worst Features

GM can build a much better engine as soon as the warr,ty expired my engine shut down.the dealer Lasorsa, charged$800.00 just to tell me i need a new engine which will cost $5000. I should have listen and brought a Toyo.

Review

I bought my malibu at 28K miles. The
car is reliable, starts up every
morning w/no problem. BUT I have
replaced brakes 3 times, rotors twice,
had to put new battery and altenator
in, replace windshield wiper blades
twice, get a/c fixed (and it still
isn't working right) replaced
taillights 3 times, and my a/c switch
now only works on 3, 4 and 5. I have
spend too much money on this car,
probably more than I'll get for it at
trade-in time.


Best Features

Big trunk, easy to drive. Love the V6


Worst Features

Can we say de-fec-tive BRAKES?!?
