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.)

Dependable Everyday Car Great Gas Milage — I'm a GM kind of guy, cut my teeth on Chevys and Oldsmoblies, in my opinion, Detroit Iron , has always been the best. This Malibu has great handling even in the snow, no problems with the trans and it holds an alignment very well. Overall, it's holding together real well, considering it's age.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

roomy, comfortable, big trunk, easy to drive/handle

Cons

gas light comes on in the winter alot, gas gauge is going out, cd player doesnt always want to eject

I Would Probably Recommend This To Someone Looking For A Cheaper Car That Runs Pretty Good — performance- acceleration, braking if not on snow build quality- pretty good,only repaired from hitting two deer apperance- looks like a normal car not crappy, interior is all matching cost of ownership- ok gas mileage around 20 mpg fun factor- can name it barbie after malibu barbie lol, speakers/cd player is better than some factory cars

A Good First Car — A very Nice Car with great acceleration and braking. The handling is great and can turn on a dime. It has had a few problems, such as the ABS doesn't work and the engine light comes on from time to time but it doesn't affect driving. It's a nice looking car both inside and out. It gets around 20 MPG which is not great but is ok for a '01.

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!

Fair — front wheel drive push rod v6 engine. got a nice kick and handles fairly well. Still not a sports car and noot one I plan to keep. Gas milage isn't the best either.
