1998 Chevrolet Malibu LX 3.1 from North America
Intake manifold gasket.
Brakes, and then more brakes.
Fan motor speeds, 1 & 2.
My 1998 Malibu is just now starting to pile up the repair receipts. As I read from the other posts, I sit here in horror. Everything people have written about has started to come true on or around the stated mileage in each of the posts. I have 56000 miles on my car, and I better bail now. Oh please just let me get through the winter (Massachusetts). I had a wonderful 1997 Honda Civic. It went 108000 miles with no problems before I gave it to my daughter. She now has 125000, and has put very little into that magnificent car.
I hate to say this, but I really have to look at the economics of the situation. It will be foreign cars for me from here on out. Until we can build cars again, then I can't support this industry any longer with my extremely hard earned dollars. Come on USA, wake up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
