I Love This Car! — I'm the 2nd owner and I've been using it as a daily-driver for over 13 years. It's a great vehicle overall; I can comfortably fit family in it on the bench seat and it has child locks! The folding down rear seats are invaluable for moving a lot of stuff and I couldn't live without my sunroof! It's comfortable on long trips and I've never gotten stuck in the snowy mountains or on the beach.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the visibility, roomy feel and V6 power.

Cons: Wish it got better gas mileage.

Great Looking Car But That Is About It — I loved this car, but it had some minor factory issues mainly due to design I think that should have been fixed. I thought overall it was a fine car, and with the LS top of the line model I had I couldnt complain about options, which for 1999 was plentiful. One of the best factory audio systems I have owned, and loved the wood grain in the dash.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: lots of power, tight sporty steering, awesome factory audio system, beautiful beige leather, looked best with a low factory rear spoiler like mine, interior quality was good, above average interior design

Cons: gas mileage wasnt the best, had a few things prematurely go out on the engine, cruise control had to be replaced early on, leather wore easily, brakes wore out constantly, and squealed a lot even new, hard to change the oil in this car

Malibu — I have owned 5 chevy malibu's so far and i am sure that i will own more in the future. These cars are very reliable, strong running, and very little problems. If you want a car that is inexpensive, reliable, and safe, I recommend the chevy malibu!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: reliable car, low maintenance, good mpg.

Cons: body style is old

Good Reliable Car — Have owned for 13 years. Cost of ownership very reasonable. Handles well. Interior could have better finishes, lots of plastic and fabric on rear dash is deteriorated. It is good commuter car. Tight for family of five to take on long trips. Brake lines needed to be replaced as GM seems to have problems with them across their brands.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car has plenty of power with the 3.1l V6.

Cons: Interior finishes tend to sun rot.

Lots Of Bang For The Buck With The Engine That Could!!! — Just a great, overall, practical car... Fun to drive. Felt safe 'cause it/the engine were very reliable. Maintenance didn't break the bank. Handles well. Gonna' feel sad when I part with it. I've had it for 11 years!! Love it! :-)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great engine!!! They don't make them like this anymore. This year in particular had a good engine. It has great get-up and go when accelerating, passing cars and climbing mountains.

Cons: Not too many that I can think of. It was Motor Trend and AAA Car of the Year in it's price class when it came out.

Love This Car — this car handles wonderfully! it gets amazing gas mileage about 33-35 miles per gallon high way and thats at an average of 75-80 mph. i love the pick up no problems getting out into rush hour traffic. it is an old car so it needs some tlc but its worth it to keep it up. love this car. only minus is you need really good tires in snowy weather.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great pic up and gas milage

Cons: not so great in the snow

Great Full/midsize Car And Economical For Everyday Use — Over all, I have to admit that this car, (99 malibu, 4 cyl), has actually impressed me and my attidude towards chevy/gm. That said, I have owned nothing less (else) than Ford. But, after inheriting this GM vehicle, for reasons in-important, I have to admit that my this malibu has unpresidently changed my view towards GM (at least these years/models). My Malibu is 11 years old now and I have not had any "Major" issues with it other than having to replace the fuel pump..but thats my fault..(cheap gas/low tank). Its a great and reliable car with plenty of room for "unexpected activities"!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Great gas mileage/spacious

Cons: Tail lights always seem to generate a "leak" even after fixing

Junk — that car sucks in performance. body roll like not other. slow acceleration. engine repairs majorly. head gaskets like to blow easy. interior styling is weak. basically set up for old people. V6 is like owning a grand prix gtp. gas hog. the car isnt fun to drive more like an embarassment.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: for a point a to point b situations

Cons: no performance at all
