Review

Front panel electrical system has been
a chronic problem. Blower has had to be
repaired 3 times. Intake/Recirc is now
broken. Bulbs blow out, a fortune to
fix. Brake repair and battery
replacement. NOW, the car's
transmission will not shift in the cold
weather. Needs 5 minutes to warm up to
even think of shifting. Repair shop
says all these problems are KNOWN
issues with this car. Cheve Customer
Service was HORRIBLE. Quote: "Once you
buy the car, it is your problem".
Dealer sold me a warranty, now the
warranty company is bankrupt and the
dealer said it is my problem.


Best Features

cup holders.


Worst Features

electrical system, brakes, transmission. You name it.

Review

After owning it for less than a year
the a/c switch would not stay on.
Luckily that was covered by the
warranty. May2003- the head gasket
seal blew - goodbye $900! July 2003-
the turn signals quit working and the
fan would only blow on settings 3, 4,
and 5. Bye, bye another $300.
January 2004-the radiator cracked and
leaked onto the belt, ADIOS to a
grand! This doesn't even include the
3 sets of brakes and new rotors that
I've put on the car. I can't afford
to live this way! $2200 is seven
months is too much to pay for a car
that is only worth twice that. Next
time I'm buying a Honda!


Best Features

I love the leather seats and the sunroof. They're the reasons I bought the car.


Worst Features

$$$$$, brakes, engine and cooling system.....what more can I say?

Review

The brakes are the big problem. Front
brakes will constanly need turning as
they warp(too much pressure from
chassis design). Cold engine tick can
be cured with new teflon coated
pistons. Problems with the
heat/ac/ventilation control, usually
need replacing.


Best Features

V6 ride and comfort. Low interior noise.


Worst Features

Make the turn signal quieter. Make the armrest softer for long rides. Improve the front brake system.

Review

THIS CAR IS A DOG. DON'T BUY IT. IT'S
BEEN NOTHING BUT HEADACHES SINCE DAY
1. BRAKES AND ROTARS REPLACED ON FIVE
SEPARATE OCCASSIONS (IT NOW HAS 67,000
MILES ON IT). WATER PUMP REPLACED,
BLOWER FAN REPLACED, AND TURN SIGNAL
SWITCH REPLACED. SPENT OVER $1500 OUT
OF POCKET ON ALL OF THESE "NOT NORMAL
WEAR AND TEAR" MALFUNCTIONS. GM DOES
NOT HELP IN THE LEAST. THEIR CUSTOMER
SERVICE IS LOUSY. I WILL NEVER BUY
ANOTHER GM CAR........NEVER.

Worst Features

DITCH THE MALIBU....SELL THE RIGHTS OF IT TO A FOREIGN COMPANY THAT BUILDS RELIABLE CARS AND KNOWS HOW TO BACK THEM UP.
