Did its job
By skinnyp on


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


Got this car in '07 with 20,000 miles. Besides replacing the head gasket this car has been relatively problem free. It had piston slap since 80,000 miles but it never seemed to do anything besides make noise. It lasted until last fall when at 205,000 some things finally started breaking. I could still get 32 mpg highway driving at 200,000 miles. The common AC problem can easily be fixed if you search it on Youtube. Once I got rid of this malibu I went I got an '02. Overall I'm satisfied with vehicle it did its job.

Best Features

The radio continues to play for 10 minutes after the car is shut off. It is very convenient for when you're picking someone up.

Worst Features

I wished the fold down rear seats would have standard. Perhaps a steering column shift would have be nice.
