2001 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.1 liter V6 from North America
Good family car for the money
I had to replace the brakes at 15000. They were vibrating when I got it at 13000. I put on new rotors and pads myself (~$100). I did not replace with ceramic pads or bi-metal rotors. I've had no problems since.
I've had my starter switch stick a few times. That causes the starter to grind a little.
All the electronics and emissions equipment seems to be functional.
Overall, I'm pleased with how well it holds up to use, but the resale value is horrible.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
