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


We had a 2002 Malibu that we originally bought in 2007.
Never had any major issues with it and because of high mileage hubby put on it driving 90 miles back and forth to work, we decided to look for another car.
We found a 2002 Malibu (this one is loaded) with 80,000 miles on it and promptly bought it.
My husband is a back yard mechanic of sorts (built a '66 Chevy II from the ground up into a pro-street car) and so he does regular maintenance on it and changes the oil religiously and tune ups and such.
Sure, we've had to change the brakes on both our vehicles, but that is the norm.
Great, great car.

Best Features

Comfort, ability to get up to speed quickly if needed, gas mileage, design, very few mechanical problems. Enough room for trips with our dog and all the gifts we bring back. Just a wonderful vehicle.

Worst Features

Other than asking for the impossible-50 mpg-I have no suggestions for improvements.
