1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.1L SFI from North America
Great car when it works!
AC - 3 days after purchase, AC compressor comes and goes at will.
Alternator - Had to be replaced with little or no warning.
Engine (twice) - engine replaced twice for loud ticking on cold starts. (thank god for extended warranty)
Intake Manifold Gasket - Leaking coolant into the engine, VERY costly repair.
Blower Motor - Blower quit working on speeds 1 & 2.
Water pump - Went out with little or no warning.
All in all, this car was GREAT when it worked, I truly enjoy it all of its nice features, BUT I learned my lesson about making impulse buys. I bought it in 2001 with 44,xxx miles and recently totaled it with 108,xxx miles. Goodbye and Goodriddins!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
