2012 Chevrolet Malibu

by Ramona on 10-16-2012
Family car
Rented this vehicle for 3 days.

It was spacious, smooth to drive, quiet and surprisingly fuel efficient considering it is a mid-size sedan.

It's what I would consider a good looking family car.

1998 Chevrolet Malibu

Trim: LT
by Esmond on 10-16-2012
good over-all family sedan with some issues
- infamous 3100 V6 engine intake manifold gasket leaks
- brake rotors warp easily
- wheel bearing issues/abs sensor issues
- decent power with the V6 engine
- once you fix the leaking intake manifold gasket, the engine is reliable
- good styling inside and outside
- ergonomic interior with decent space and good comfort
- won Motor Trend's 1997 Car of the Year award
- most of the minor issues were fixed in model year 2000 (chalk it up to teething problems for a new model)

dont buy
Hate this car nothing but problems!! Door locks, key fobs, cheap hubcaps that break in a instant. Noisy, underpowered, terrible in rain and snow, valves like to ratlle when a bit cold out.
Will not be buying a chev again!!
