I Love My Mali-poo — I hate how the back quarter panel at the gas tank always... always rusts out on a Malibu! I hate how I have put so much money into a flippin car. I love my Malibu! She was a gift! Even with all the rust.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: very comfy to drive

Cons: rust is an issue

Do Not Buy — Perfornace - accelerated well, did not brake, handled ok for the type of car, not so good mpg. Built quality - disaster. Appearance- the only good hing going for it. Cost of ownership - once the warranty wore you were fried. Fun factor - not build for fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nothing

Cons: brakes and overall reliability

Great Dependable, Sturdy, Comfortable Mid-size Sedan. — I've had this car for 6 years and still love it. Acceleration has always been great, being a 6-cylinder, and despite the automatic transmission. It brakes and handles pretty smoothly, even now with 150,000 miles. Repairs and maintenance have been minimal - mostly brakes, tires, water pump, serpentine belt. Mostly mechanically sound, aside from power window motors breaking and interior fan only works on high. Minor rust around back tire wells. Outside appearance is pretty mild - an average looking mid-size sedan. Interior is the same, with grey fabric seats and grey dash. The gas mileage is surprisingly good, as I've gotten close to 40mpg highway on trips. It's roomy, comfortable, very dependable, and I dread the day we get rid of this car!

Pros: Great gas mileage, low repairs and maintenance, comfortable, roomy.

Cons: Window motors stopped working, interior fan has 2 settings now:  full-blast and off.

I Love My Malibu — My car is the most amazing car ever invented! Ive ran it into fences, off cliffs (seriously), other cars... and it has hardly any dents at all! Sadly though, its old, and once upon a time it could kick a little bit of ass on the road, but not anymore. Now its just a lowly 4 cylinder with an attitude. None the less, i love my little baby and when she kicks the bucket I would LOVE to have a V6 version of her.

Pros: My car has an attitude

Cons: My Engine Sucks

Mundane Ride — We bought this car used, at a dealer, when it had not even been cleaned up from the previous owner at trade in. It was a bargain, but, since owning it, it has had NUMEROUS "gremlins" plague it.....including the necessity of replacing the engine due to an overheat with the water pump. Most cars bought used, you expect maintenance, but this car has been a nickel- and-dime money pit after the first year of ownership. Keeping it cuz its paid off....that is the ONLY reason.

Pros: Leather, power sunroof, comfortable ride, adequate power

Cons: "wallowy" steering, recurrent front brake rotor issues, inadequate braking

1999 Malibu Ls — Its got balls. The only race I've ever lost in my malibu (Bone stock) was against a corvette. Fun to drive fast, to have that feeling of being on the edge because you know a 4 door family sedan should not corner that well normally. It has needed a new alternator though.. and its leaking Coolant from the intake manifold which suggests it needs a new intake manifold gasket a whopping 10 hours of labour typically assuming everything goes well. Looks good outside and in. Gas mileage isnt so bad for a 6cylinder. 150hp and 180ft-lbs is pretty fun. Recommend for the daily driver who needs to go a little bit quicker if they want to.

Pros: speed, braking, low end torque.

Cons: American

99 Chevy Malibu — My car is amazing! I just added a cold air intake to it and the things roars like a kitten! i love this car and its like my 2nd girlfriend, i love it, its comfy and everything that i like is pretty much for it. YAY!!! the only thing i don't care for is that the radio doesn't pull in the radio stations to well, so i'm trying to find out what i could do to try and fix this problem. But over all i love this car, and i know that the 3.1L motor will last a long time cuz i had that same motor in my last car and it was a tad over 250,xxx miles on it when i sold it. so i know this car will last me and its going to be all good

Pros: GOOD RIDE, POWERFUL, NICE LINES OF BODY

Cons: RADIO STATIONS COME IN BAD
