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


During the course of 3 years, I put 60k
miles on this car. In that period I
replaced the battery, brought it in
twice for a fuel level indicator
recall,had to reprogram the BCM,
replaced the tires, replaced the front
brakes 3 times, including rotors, pads
and calipers; replaced all rear light
bulbs. Before I sold it, the right front
wheel bearing, differential and flasher
units were all failing, and there was a
leak in the right rear lens cover. An
absolute lemon of a car, with abysmal
resale value, terrible customer support
from the manufacturer and a bigger waste
of money than most cars I've owned. I
strongly caution buyers against this car.

Best Features

Reasonably comfortable and quiet ride.

Worst Features

Brakes need steel caliper systems, thicker rotors, more durable wheel bearings,more durable lights, better computer programming, more power, better attention to detail in fitting of moldings, body panels, etc etc.
