1998 Chevrolet Malibu Basic 3.1 from North America
Love my Malibu, most of the time
First problem with our Malibu was the air conditioner constantly flipping settings.
Our block heater was replaced at a little over 100,000km.
The battery has been replaced.
The brakes have been replaced twice, rotors once.
The main problem is the fuel pump or something constantly whining when the car is on.
There is a problem with the coolant overflowing its tank, possibly a leak, but hasn't been found yet.
This car is very nice to drive.
It has excellent acceleration, and the Anti lock braking system is a nice addition.
The stock stereo with CD player has excellent sound.
Amazing trunk space. We have moved a large treadmill with ease.
The backseat fits 3 people comfortably.
Overall this is a good vehicle, but make sure you know where it has been.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
