2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I'm a busy grad student and bought my Malibu for the overall value. I have leather seats (should be heated) A Sunroof, CD player, and rear spoiler. The engine has just enough pep to it to get by. However, GM did have a problem with the front rotors which i had to fix after only putting on an addition 10,000 miles from 35,000 - not fun for $300. Another flaw was the blower fan not working on settings 1 and 2 but you can replace the part yourself and it only cost 25 bucks at a parts shop. (this is a common problem with GM) Besides that no problems, so check the rotors and ask if the blower fan has been fixed and you should be in the clear. I highly recommend this car. Low Price, Great Value!!!


Best Features

Sunroof, CD, Nice styling, Leather (clean with leather wipes once a month) Peppy engine, fog lights. Try to find more!


Worst Features

Fuel economy could be better, the rotor problem should be covered under warranty

Review

Had a bad experience buying the car but loved it every since. We had problems with the rotors and pads in the beginning but that was under warranty. Then we had the fan control go out on us. Just recently we had the EGR valve go and have had a problem where the AC when it is on MAX it will all of the sudden shut down to the regular AC. But other than those we have been very happy with the car.


Best Features

Ride and comfort, pleny of room in front and back, Fuel economy


Worst Features

None right now.

Review

I've had this car for 4 years and
haven't had any issues. The only
things to have gone wrong were fan
speeds 1 & 2 on the AC broke while
under warranty, and the coolant light
on the dashboard came on when it
shouldn't have. Other than that, I
have kept up with the regular
maintenance and haven't had a problem.
I'm very pleased with the car.


Best Features

Remote keyless entry. CD player. Plenty of leg room.


Worst Features

Make a tape deck and cd player standard. Have the windows go all the way down in the back of the car.

Review

Way to many problems for a 4 yr old
car. The brakes (rotors+pads), intake
valve, alternator, starter, A/C
switch, battery, and who knows what
other surprises await. . . I regret
that GM does not stand behind their
cars like Honda - they know those
rotors are trash, but tell you it's
your problem. And they wonder why
they lose market share.


Best Features

Good power, good mileage.


Worst Features

HMMM, how about some brakes, intake valve, alternator, starter..(the irony was that the dealer told me that I now have a lifetime warranty on the alternator and the starter) - why not do that from the beginning?

Review

I am glad I chose to purchase the Major
Guard Extended Warranty on this
vehicle! While the car looks nice and
drives wonderfully, it has had
mechanical problems left and right. I
have had to have the following problem
corected: A/C would turn itself off,
the blinker quit blinking, two front
wheel bearings (sp?) had to be
replaced, the head gasket cracked and I
had to have the gaskets and lifters
replaced and the car didn't even have
45000 miles on it.


Best Features

It handles great!
