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


We bought the Malibu new in September 2003. Actually we bought two (one basic and one LS), and have been very pleased. This review is based on our experience involving the basic Malibu after 59,000 miles. Mainly interstate driving, 20,000 miles per year. Using cruise control, I consistently average 30 MPG. New tires at 43,000 miles. Replaced front brakes at 56,000 miles, at a dealership cost of $127.90. Rear brakes still good shape. Oil changes every 3,000 miles. We are happy Malibu owners, and armed with hindsight, we would make the same purchase decision as we did in Septemer 2003.

Best Features

Quiet and comfortable ride. Great acceleration on entrance ramps. Good CD/cassette/radio. Provides dependable transportation at a reasonable cost. We are pleased with the overall performance.

Worst Features

Sun visors were improved in later models to provide extenders.
