1998 Chevrolet Malibu Base 3.1 Multiport from North America
The worst car I ever bought; spent more time with my mechanic than in my garage
I bought the car for a $1,000.00 when I got back from Iraq because my ex wife left me with no money and a whole bunch of bills. And I think it was the biggest mistake I ever made.
I have never see a car with so many problems; everything showed up a couple of weeks after I bought it like a bomb.
Intake gasket went bad (common problem for this cars), water pump bad, and bad A/C.
So well I fixed for like $550.00.
Running good, but it started to overheat again; the shop said was bad freeze plugs, fixed for like $20.00 bucks.
Keep doing the same problem; shop said bad reservoir, which I bought brand new on eBay.
Kept having the same problem, so I decide to stop the car and buy a very old reliable 1987 Honda Accord DX sedan.
It was the worst nightmare in my life, this car is a headache to my mechanic.
I never recommend this car to anyone looking for a car. Even with its very comfortable interior and nice stereo.
Bad on gas in the city, but good on the highway.
Expensive tune up.
Bad resale value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
