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


This has been a very solid and reliable car--my experience matches the high JD Power and strong CR ratings for this model year. Lots of interior room and luggage capacity. Fule mileage has been good, with over 30 mpg on highways with cruise control. Strong pickup, decent handling. Brake rotors were turned at around 25,000 miles, which seems normal to me for mostly local stop and go driving. Seating could be better for me on long drives (I'm 6'3" with long legs). All in all, I was pleased enough to get a used model for my college son. It's a good deal for those who keep their cars for a while.

Best Features

Pickup, trunk, passenger seating, highway mileage.

Worst Features

Second console cupholder (left side one is an interesting innovation that doesn't quite work). Better thigh and lumbar support for driver.
