Love it but have had problems

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


I bought the car at 37000 miles and drove it thru several states and Canada (about 8000 miles total), and couldn't ask for a better ride or drive, but the brake pedal went too low before I got back. I took it to the dealer, and because it happened in the 3000 mi/30 day warranty on used cars, they supposedly fixed the brakes. They didn't feel any different after, and I know the brakes and rotors need replacement now. I had the same problem as others with the no start or shutting down while driving. Just paid $500 for new ignition switch. Only time will tell if it recurs, or if I get the engine leak problem too!

Best Features

Great suspension system, ride, handling.

Worst Features

Besides above problems, fix the flaking paint on the bumper so the car wash don't blow pieces off along with the bugs! Better support on outside eadge of drivers seat so it don't bend outward. Better cup holders in back, and another in front pass side!
