Cheap. Too much rust to consider this car as decent scrap
The body is cheap and easily mangled.
The rear end is cheap and wears quickly.
The brakes are horrible even after you have new ones put in.
The handling is miserable even after you replace all of the front end parts.
The engine is sloppy, burns oil, weak pick-up.
The interior is falling apart - just like every other older Malibu I have seen.
The transmission is OK.
You know, I have given Chevy a fair chance, I really have. I have found that their cars are cheaply built. Every Chevy I have owned or driven I have compared to a Ford and Dodge of equal value and found Chevy always came up short. Dodge choked in certain years and Ford was bad from '80 to '82.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
