Reliable car with good performance and lots of features, but low retail value
ABS light randomly goes on. I've heard this from other owners and Malibu owners.
Leather seats wore badly. Cracked and split on the driver's seat.
Fan stopped working on settings 1 and 2, another common problem with this model.
A/C seems to shut off on its own every now and then.
All in all, I've owned this car for 7 years now and I would say it held up well. I have never owned a car this long. No serious problems with the car, the only thing that annoys me is the condition of the leather seats. They did not age well. Performance is good, nice power to pass for a 6 cylinder sedan. Stereo sounds great for a GM.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
