Good Daily Driver V-6
By Brett on


1999 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


My wife bought this car when it was a year and a half old w/ 30,000 mile (Program car). It currently has 131,000 on it. Car has been suprisingly reliable. Only problems have been the brakes (replaced twice), ignition switch cyl. (PASS key/Anti- theft problem $200), intake manifold gasket leaking (well known problem w/ GM V-6's $600), A/C switch in dash panel will turn off/on while driving ($200), gas gauge is inaccurate (will read good till half tank then when turning a corner will peg out to empty). Other than these problems this has been an excellent car. Spending a $1,000 for 100,000 miles is not that bad to maintain a car that gets about 26 MPG HWY still w/ a V-6.

Best Features

Decent power/MPG w/ V-6, comfort is great for being 6' 4",

Worst Features

GM's intake manifod design on V-6 engines (Well known for leaking), cup holder on drivers side hits my left knee, Gas Gague, Brakes, PASS key system
