Good car until later in life
By Sam on


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


Bought this brand new in Dec 2001. Overall it was an excellent car. Our family fit well in it and the car was largely free of problems until recently. About a month ago we found out it had the dreaded intake manifold leak possibly due to the orange Dexcool coolant. It was expensive to fix, and there was no guarantee against it happening again, let alone other engine damage. We traded on a Honda. If hadn't developed the Dexcool problem, we'd still have it today.

Best Features

Comfortable, roomy. Got close to 30 MPG on the highway. Reliable until later in years.

Worst Features

Improve brakes; eliminate use of Dexcool
