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

Review

I bought it new, and have only put 20k miles on it in over 2 years. A wheel bearing went bad at 8k miles. The stereo stopped working at 13k, the horn stopped working at 18k, engine belt had to be replaced at 20k. Brakes are shot now at 20k, tires are wearing pretty badly as well, and nope, I don't do any jerky driving or high speed turns. I also get random weird vibrations and noises. i have noticed tiny spots of rust forming on the roof and trunk. The rust is under the trunk lid as well, so I'm wondering what is going on there. The car feels cheap in general, but I think I would have gotten my money's worth if it weren't for these annoying problems. I'm afraid of many more problems happening after the warranty is up.

Best Features

V6 engine gets the job done. Sure it isn't ridiculously fast, but it provides plenty of passing power and acceleration for me.

Worst Features

Build quality -- pay attention to detail.
