1999 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


My experience with my '99 Malibu 3.1L hasn't been a good one. I bought it used at 94,000 miles which was probably my first mistake. At first the car was fine and enjoyable to drive. However, over time the car showed its weaknesses. The first problem I had was with the ignition and a leak in the intake manifold gasket. The ignition froze up, had to have it replaced as well as the gasket. Months later I am dealing with a "fix or die" problem, three problems actually. The first two are the head gasket and intake manifold gasket, they're both leaking, again. Worst of all the torque converter is going. I want to rid myself of this car and hopefully get an Impala.

Best Features

ABS, gas mileage, and acceleration.

Worst Features

Much more reliable transmission and components, and could use more horses under the hood.
