I regret buying this car!
By ck1102 on


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


I usually don't leave reviews like this, but maybe I will save someone from the headache of owning this piece. I bought my 02 Malibu in 2010, and it only had 80k miles on it. Now, with 130k miles and regular checkups, I've had to replace the ignition switch, fuel pump and filter, water pump, the wheel baring twice, the master cylinder and entire brake system, oxygen sensor, the throttle body sensor, the temperature gauge, spark plugs,2 speakers, 2 batteries, 2 sets of brand new tires, and the door handle. This adds up to a significantly higher amount than the car is actually worth, and guess what? My head gasket just blew and flooded my entire engine. Thanks, Chevy, thanks a lot.

Worst Features

Perhaps Chevy should start paying people to drive the Malibu, since mine and a co-worker's seem to have all the same issues and nobody should ever spend any money them.
