It Is A Great Car. It Gets You Where You Want To Go And Is Fun To Drive. A Good Car. — This is a really good car. It accelerates well, it has good braking, and it handles really good. Chevrolet built it well because there are no leaks, squeaks, and it is reliable. It was designed well and it is comfortable to ride in. It was fairly fuel efficient but still fun to drive. Got around 33MPG with it. Should have kept it and not got the Rendezvous!

Cons

too slow.....

My Third Car — i wish itt went faster, no really, it dont go past 170km/h and to tell you the truth, i wish it went maybe, 25 more kms. but beyond that its acceleration is perfect. not to mention handling! the interior is nice. but i dont like the beige colour. i might add some dark in it. the exterior colour as well. the original paint is great. not too much rust at all. fun factor: i "accidently" jumped a dirt pile on the road in a construction zone and went flying. amazingly nothing broke. i was lucky. as much as it was fun i dont think i will do that again.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Love It — It accelerate quickly. The brakes are shot. And it handles fine when there is stearing fluid added. The car was free.My grandpa bought t for me. Its silver and it had one previous owner so its in mint condition. It a fun and perfect car for me and my family.

Pros

22/28 MPG;  Powerful engine;  Great driver/Front passenger room.

Cons

Transmission best suited for a golf cart.

Comfortable, Quick, Remarkably Effective. — It's a simple, generic car with the twist of having a sporty 3100 V6 under the hood. It takes a beating and keeps on going, even after 166k. It's features are amazing for their day, and it still outstrips some new vehicles. The stereo is a stock option and is amazingly rich and deep. Overall, it's not a Maserati, but it's well worth the money for a commuter sedan with some fun inside.

Great power, acceleration, virtually maintenance free

Cons

Small rusting near gas door, lack of great aftermarket accessories

2001 Malibu Review — I love this car. It's great on gas and definitely has great power, for a v6. Very reliable too. Everything's good about this car, just a small paint issue near the gas door. Seems to be a malibu issue, it has rusting near it. Rest of the paint is still good. Only issue I have is the lack of any 'good' aftermarket stuff. Did add clear parking light covers, and it has an aftermarket spoiler on the trunk. But not too much out there that doesn't make it look like a ricer.
