A perfect car for a young driver
The carburetor was replaced before I had purchased the car, because it had been sitting for a couple of years.
The 267 V8 motor was a bad design and a sour spot in this Malibu.
The engine was burning oil when I bought it and continued to get worse. The rings are probably gone, but it still runs with a little less power.
Constant cleaning and replacement of the spark plugs because of oil deposits.
I always had a problem with the emission controls. I ended up unhooking a lot of it to make it run better.
This car is a nice cruiser, with comfortable seats and plenty of room.
It's not much on performance with the sour 267 motor, but for what it was, it was fast enough.
It's not as big as a Caprice so it's easy to drive and handle. A great size over all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
