2000 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan


I bought the Malibu because it was
larger than the 1995 Cavalier and a
quieter ride, but I have many more
problems with the Malibu than I ever
had with the Cavalier. I am at 51,000
miles and about to replace the rotors,
which have warped for the second
time. The air conditioner keeps
switching off for no reason as does the
air re-circulation. In a heavy rain,
my brake lights shorted out. I'm
afraid I will be going a new direction
for the next new vehicle.

Best Features

The ride is quieter than the Cavalier and does have good pickup and go.

Worst Features

The rotors should be able to accomodate the Malibu. The electrical system should be revamped to prevent shorts and faulty behaviors.
