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


No problems yet. Transmission is slow to kick down in comparison to my past 96 Lumina but the speedo says that I'm moving with good acceleration.
I read 8.6 sec. to 60 mph which is fairly good for this type of car.
As with my past Lumina, great mileage or as we say in Canada kilometerage. (Just kidding!)

Best Features

Loads of neat features for 5-6000 cdn dollars less than Accord. Past gm vehicles have been less expensive to service than any import eg. no huge expense to change timing belts, outrageous maintainence schedules, parts prices etc.

Worst Features

More contour in front seats. Bigger floor mats. Extend signal and wiper stalk one inch. Heater buttons for inside/outside air feel flimsy. Add two or three more color choices for exterior, one more for interior. The 3.8 would fit and be 30 more hp, imports now offer 200+ horsepower.
