Review

I have replaced the brake pads twice,
my rotors are warped, replaced the
serpintine belt twice, all four tires,
replaced front passenger wheel
bearing , and alternator. When
driving 75 mph the car shakes, and
there is still a bearing noise which
comes from the front passenger wheel.
In the shop right now having the head
intake gasket, water pump and
serpentine belt replaced. 3.1 L
problematic, just look around the web,
you'll see. I thought I'd give GM
another shot at winning me over.
Let's just say my next car will be a
Honda. No wonder GM is loosing so
much market share to Honda and Toyota.


Best Features

Good power from the V-6. Interior laid out well; Spacious interior. Attractive exterior.


Worst Features

FIX THE LEAKY COOLANT SYSTEM. Overall increase in quality would be nice.

Review

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE BRAKE
LIGHTS IT UNDER A 10$ FIX!!! BUY NEW
BOARDS THAT HOLD THE BULBS AND DONT USE
CHEAP BULBS!!! THE BRAKE PROBLEM HAS
NOT HAPPENED TO ME. I HAD THEM REPLACED
AT 40,000 MILES STILL GOING STRONG. I
HAVE REPLACED THE ALTERNATOR ONCE AT
35,000 MILES.OVER ALL AN OK CAR FOR THE
MONEY.


Best Features

FUN TO DRIVE


Worst Features

THE BRAKE SYSTEM IS A LITTLE BIT UNDER SIZED FOR THE WIEGHT OF THE CAR WHEN FULLY LOADED WITH FIVE ADULTS. MAYBE 4 WHEEL DISK BRAKES SHOULD HAVE BEEN USED

Review

I've only had my Malibu for 5 months
but I love it! I have never had any
problems with it. The brakes had to be
replaced but the dealer did that since
it was still under warranty. Other than
that it has be a wonderful car!


Best Features

It is a smooth and comfortable ride. The car looks nice and I get compliments on it all the time.


Worst Features

I would have to agree with everyone else on the change holder. It could be put in the glove box or in the arm rest.

Review

Apparently these cars are known to have
problems with their manifold intake
gaskets. Ours went out at 41000 miles
and will cost $1000-1200 to replace.
The AC/heater fan also doesnt work on
settings 1 and 2 and the seatbelts have
broken. All in all a bad experience
with the quality and reliability
