1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 liter 4 cylinder from North America
Almost an excellent buy
Twice now, in a year's time, the front brake rotors have warped.
The power window buttons on the driver door failed. The whole component had to be replaced.
The antenna connection failed causing yet another visit to the shop.
This car, even though it has a 4 cylinder engine, is an excellent handling machine. I have had it on some very harsh roads and it sticks to them like super glue. It has great acceleration and passing ability.
An excellent family car if they could work all or most of the bugs out of it.
I have done some traveling with this car and it is great on the open road. It is comfortable and handles great with good milage too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Correction...The Chevy Malibu 4 cylinder does NOT have "great acceleration and passing ability" This is totally a false statement. I own a V6 and can BARLEY pass 4 cylinder compact cars. I will never own a GM product in my life again.

I own the 99 2.4, and I love it. However the sway bar broke and it caused me to roll the car. I still love the car, and little damage was done.
