2001 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.1 V6 from North America
I love it, and look forward to my next one
Replaced Brake Pads and Front Rotors at 40,000.
I believe over all that that Chevrolet Malibu's are a very good car.
The 3.1 V6 runs down the road awesome!
It gets great fuel mileage, even though that like one article said it was inconsistent, its' always good even breaking 30mpg on interstate driving.
I've read the negative remarks made on the Malibu's, and disagree with most. I think the people complaining about them, would complain about most anything they would drive period. Its' a car folks, they do break down sometimes.. even the high dollar vehicle you will find at the dealership for repairs. Yes! there are Lexus mechanics too... even Honda Mechanics! them little imports have to be worked on, they get funny little noises in them too...
If you are thinking of a Malibu to buy, I do recommend.
Mine is a LS with leather, moon roof, factory CD, Alloy Wheels and a rear spoiler... I'd buy another one in a heart beat!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
