2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Malibu two years ago with
37,000 miles on it. I now have 193,000
miles on it. I use it for deliveries
and drive approximately 300 miles a
day, so it really gets a workout.It is
very comfortable to ride in and has
very good space throughout.I have had
no problems with this car other than
the brakes that seems everyone has
had.Chevy dealers charge twice what
everyone does for thew brake work... I
suggest going to Pep Boys and make sure
they put their american made rotors on
it, not the Japanese. I am trading this
one in for a newer 2001/2002 Malibu
with lower mileage.I love it!

Review

I've had many of the problems mentioned
here - break wear, blower not working on
1 or 2, etc. My dealership would NOT
fix the brake problem under warranty.
They said it was due to 'normal wear and
tear', though I only had 30,000 miles on
it - probably 90% highway driving. Even
in 2000 everyone knew it was a design
issue, but they refused to cover it - so
it cost me $250.
The workmanship is pretty bad. The
cover keeps coming off the control panel
in the driver's armrest, the trunk liner
ripped away from the trunk, and the
cargo net hooks ripped out of the liner.
The gas tank is smaller than advertised
- they claim it's 15-gal, but it's more
like 12.5-13 gal.


Best Features

It's not a horrible car - besides the brakes, it just has lots of little issues. Go to Midas or CarX to get the lifetime brakes - it costs a little more ($350), but you get lifetime replacements.


Worst Features

No major problems, but the Malibu has been disappointing - I am not going to buy another one. Since GM does not honor the warranty on this car, I will probably not buy another GM product either.

Review

If you buy this car with basic features
inside and outside, but you
surprisingly get 33 MPG on the highway,
you overlook some of the small
discomforts you experience in the ride.
This has been the most reliable and
inexpensive car I've ever owned.


Best Features

It has more quickness than you expect from a Malibu


Worst Features

Better brakes that don't need to be replaced every 15,000 miles.

Review

I have had my Chevy Malibu for 4 years
and have had no problems. It is safe
and has a lot of power. I had a choice
between a ford taurus and a Chevy
Malibu and I am happy with my choice,
The MALIBU!


Best Features

Power, safety, sound system, it's a quiet ride and the V6 engine.


Worst Features

Don't have any!
