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


Purchased the car in 2004 with 9K miles. always taken care of the care by doing the maintenance myself. Car has had no major problems since i purchased. Just had my transmission oil and radiator
flushed a replaced. Car still performs very well. Taken it on multiple trips a year and always average between 26-28 MPG. Have highly rated All season tires and always perform regular oil changes. Acceleration always begins to be a problem right before oil changes are necessary, but the car performs very well otherwise. Interior is differently not of high quality and things do brake but nothing a little lover and attention wont fix.

"Update" the car had a total loss after breaks failed on the highway in January of 2016. Tried to fix myself but could determine the reason for the loss of breaks. Took it to the dealership to get it fixed but after 3,000 in repairs they could figure out why the breaks were not engaging Eventually traded it in for a new car. Lasted me 13 years befor it gave out. Overall it was a good car and I would have boughten it again.
