1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4 cylinder from North America
Don't buy a Chevrolet!
I had to replace the rack and pinion mechanism only after having the car for 3 years. The car is only 5 years old! It cost over $800 to repair this!
A year after I bought it, I had to replace 2 batteries and an alternator.
Car just recently shut off for no apparent reason. I was coming to a stop and the car shook and cut off. I waited a few seconds and turned the car back on. I had someone check it immediately. The could not find anything when they hooked it up to a diagnosis machine. It is nerve racking when this happens because I don't know if it will happen when I'm in rush hour traffic.
I will NEVER buy ANY car from Chevrolet as long as I live. I had a Honda previously and had no serious problems with it until after it approached it's 10th birthday. I hated to get rid of that car. I believe the Malibu is the Corsica in disguise. Ugh!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
