2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.1 V6 from North America
A good, reliable car, for the money
Rotor warpage occurring after tire rotations and wheel balancing. Have dealer check lug nut torque with a torque wrench as impact wrenches are not calibrated and will over-tighten.
Hazard switch failed and caused intermittent turn signal operation. This was repaired under warranty and was a recall item. The repair took 30 minutes and problem has not returned.
Climate control switch malfunctioned where the symbol for floor vent would be defrost, etc. Replaced control unit under warranty and problem has not returned after 2 years.
This car has been extremely reliable and low cost to operate.
Gas mileage is excellent to where I calculated better than 30 MPG on the highway.
Reliability has been very good, and only minor items have occurred which were fixed under warranty. This car has been more reliable that the 1990 Camry DX we used to own.
The interior is comfortable and has held up well.
The exterior is immaculate and no rust or blemishes have shown up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
