A Car Don't
By rsg71 on


2002 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


I bought this car in 2005, and it has been in the shop nearly every year.
Last year, it was in the shop 3 times, and it it would be on it's way again if I wasn't getting rid of it!
The fuel pump, lower intake gasket, anti-theft sensor that won't turn off (the key IS in the ignition), and then some routine maintenance things.
I don't mind paying routine up keep of a car, but the parts and labor is outrageous for the most basic things!
The thing that appalls me the most- Chevy KNOWS about these problems but has done nothing to make it right by their customers.
Will not own GM again.

Best Features

The interior is roomy.

Worst Features

Deal with known issues. Lower intake gasket that goes out because of Dex-Cool anti-freeze that is required. Anti-theft system that won't turn off or let the car start even though the key is in the ignition because of known tumbler issues. The insane cost of parts.
