1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 twin cam from North America
High performance in a small package!
This car was bought for my mother. Out of the years we have own this car, we have only had one problem out of it. The brake pads. The brakes work great, they just like to skip when applying them hard.
All in all I love this car. Being a teenage boy, I sometimes take it out racing and I dog it. This car has taken everything I can throw at it. I have raced numerous Honda Civic and messed them up. Raced a few V-6 Mustangs and beat them off the line and at top end. Also beat a turbo charged Volkswagon Jetta. This car as excellent get up and go. I just wish it had a little more top end and didn't give out at 110 when the governor kicks in. I would also like to see the car have better suspension. I few weeks ago, I was racing a Honda Civic and it almost beat me because I had to slow down a lot for this deep curve, if not for the great getup and go power, I would have lost. Not sure how much horsepower it has, but it's got some serious power and you shouldn't lay down on it unless you konw what your doing!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I recently purchased a 1999 Chevy Malibu base last year, best decision I ever made. I totally agree with you man, it is an amazing little car. I get great gas mileage and I can keep up with most of the other cars on the road. It was nice to read a review about a car that someone actually loved. I love my car, pushing 160,000 it is an amazing car. Great gas mileage (23 in town, 28 highway). I have had little problems with it but this car is a tank, I slid sideways into the curb and the little car survived. I go by the book, if it says I need something then I actually do it. Being a teenager in High school though, this car is absolutely perfect! Great gas mileage, plenty of room, quick little car, great handling (thanks to Uniroyal Tiger Paws) and a cheap insurance rate.
