1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 Litre Twin Cam from North America
Don't buy it, it will bring you trouble
EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) failed a few months after buying the car due to road salt intrusion, replaced with used unit ($250 cdn).
Fuel tank had to be replaced at about 100000 km due to rust perforation on top ($350 cdn).
Both front hub and bearing assemblies replaced with good aftermarket SKF brand units, $165 cdn each.
Had to drill drain holes in taillight assemblies to allow water to drain out.
Replaced right front strut bearing.
Car is now on third blower control resistor pack, $60 cdn each time.
Comfortable car, has had it's share of problems, will definitely be the last GM product I ever buy. After suffering with a 1992 Lumina and then spending a fair bit of money on this one, my wife and I will be buying a Mazda 3 as soon as we can manage. No wonder GM is in trouble and Delphi is bankrupt, with the poor quality cars and components they keep producing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
