The Good & the Bad
By MWave on


1999 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


The Good - The Malibu is a very fun
car to drive. It handles well on the
highway and gas mileage is good. The
car has good excelleration especially
when you need to pass another car.
Interior extras are very nice. Lots of
trunk space. Good sound system
The Bad - Reliability. The
transmission needed to be pulled at
4500 miles due to a faulty switch
causing the car to switch gears too
soon. After 33000 miles I have had two
leaky intake manifold gaskets (coolant
& oil) replaced. Seems to be going
through serpentine belts too quickly
(every 16,000 miles). ABS light
intermittently comes on. I am glad I
have an extended warranty.

Best Features

Front bucket seats are comfortable. Very nice CD/Tape/AM/FM Radio system. Lots of luxury items were standard. Nice smooth excelleration and smooth ride.

Worst Features

More reliabale Engine. Do not use Firestone tires (large tread cracks at 26000 miles). Driver side cup tray is in a bad location.
