Look out when the warranty expires

2001 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


The vehicle was purchased new and has
always been regularly serviced. Only
minor problems were experienced until
the milage clicked over 30,000 miles.
I'm now at 50,000 and trading it in for
a 2003 Honda Accord. I've already had
to replace the brakes, repair a coolant
leak, replace the AC/heater fan motor,
replace the turn signal switch, a front
headlight housing that allowed water
in, and the driver-side seat belt. I
agree with the previous reviewer that
stated his Malibu was slowly falling
apart; I feel the same way. I am not
hard on my cars!

Best Features

The seats are very comfortable and it has a great sounding stereo system, plus a large trunk.

Worst Features

I have been unhappy with the maintenance/repair problems detailed above, the stiff steering, the road noise being audible over the radio (!), the small gas tank, and very rapid depreciation.
