2000 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


Purchased new. Now 42,000 miles.
Starts, runs, everything works. Good
balance of size, interior, price. Very
tight steering system and corners well.
Can do a fairly long road trip with out
comfort issues. Dealer has been very
good. Had some problems early on.
Replaced an engine(3.1L) due to
knocking (bad pistons, damaged cylinder)
Replacement engine clatters like a
diesel when cold but doesn't seem to be
an issue when warm and apparently still
goes many miles. Gets great mileage 32
mpg highway. Original Firestone tires
were junk, started making noise at
30,000 miles. Even though rotated at
6,000.Have not seen the brake problems
I hear about.

Best Features

Steering system, interior features(cup holders, pockets,etc)

Worst Features

Give me head lights I can turn off when I want to. Fix the noisy cold motor. Better yet, give it a little more horsepower. Offer an interior without console.(I'd rather have room than look sporty) Give it some decent tires when new.
