2003 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Replaced front brakes and rotors at 6900 milles, again at 30,000 and again at 48,000 including replacing wheel bearings and calipers to the tune of $1200. No, I do not ride the brake! I have been told by several people that GM knows they are installing junk and the only way not to be replacing the brakes and rotors all the time is to replace the wheel bearings to correct the problem. GM should step up. Considering the size and price of the vechile, besides the brake issue, it has been dependable transportation. Mine is a basic model so it lacks in the comfort department.

Best Features

Good acceleration

Worst Features

Better quality bearings, rotors, brakes etc. Critical part of the safety of vechicle is knowing when you hit the brake - the vechicle is going to stop. GM should step up and correct this defect. Better gas mileage, thicker steering wheel - hands cramp holding onto the thin wheel on long trips.
