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


GM program car; bought 1/2003 at 24,000 miles, now has 85,000. Original Firestone tires wore out at 33,000, replacement BFG tires still have 5/32 tread. Intake gasket coolant leak repaired at 51,000 on extended warranty. Brake pads replaced and rotors turned at 78,000. MPG records show 25+ mixed driving, up to 31 MPG hiway. Starts good, runs good, drives good, rides good, with lots of power when needed. Recent electrical problems were battery cable corrosion hidden by rubber cover at positive battery terminal. Normal maintenance includes synthetic oil at 5,000 miles. Great car.

Best Features

High seating, radio sound and read out, power and mileage.

Worst Features

Flimsy driver cup holder and placement in front of vent. Rear seat does not fold down.
