    Malibu Owner 4ever — So much better than it's rated to be. Performs so well. Good acceleration, handling, braking. Very few repairs-all of which are inexpensive because the car is made in America. Looks much better than my boss' accord. Good on gas and powerful. Love driving it. My next car will be a Malibu!

    Pros: Everything under the hood and in the car

    Cons: It likes to drink antifreeze but it is 8 years old, give it a break

    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

    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

    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.

    Pros: Easy to Drive

    Cons: Electronic Problems

    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.

    Pros: Good first car, great performance for a 4 door sedan.

    Cons: not the best or worst in any catagory a little too average. and gas milage isn't very good

    Cars Like This Should Be Made More Often. — 2001 Chevy Malibu LS series with cd player and sound system built in. Air Condition and heating. 16 gallon tank. Cruise Control. Automatic Seats in front. Automatic Windows and locks. Nice comfy seating. gets good gas mileage. Anti-lock breaks.

    Pros: Its basically the kind of car u'd give to ur children when they're in high school. It really is a great car.

    Cons: The only problems so far I've had with it are I needed to get the starter replaced u may noticed that if u had gotten that car when it came out the starter would need replaced after about 55k miles. I've also had to get my fuel pump and injector changed but that was due to how well it was taken care of. Other than that it has not given me anymore problems.

    Rest In Peace Buddy... — My first car and the car I learned how to drive in. It was defective and broke down at least 3 times a month. I called it Negative Nixon. When it worked it was amazing. When it didn't.... well at least it looked good sitting in the garage. hahahaha. I had some great memories in that car. I'd still have it, but in late 2007 some jackass ran a red light and totalled it out.

    Pros: The memories.

    Cons: Everything Else.

    Reliable Car — I knew going with a Chevy would be a wise decision. Minus the minor mechanical problems, I am very happy with this car.

    Pros: Leather Seats, Moon Roof, CD/Tape Player, and runs like dream

    Cons: Only minor mechanical problems

    Good State To State Crusier — Have this car from when I lived 2 states away to drive back and forth to home...never had any major problems with it other than ripping the front bumper off getting alittle to wild on some dirt roads...

    Pros: Good gas mileage, roomy enough for 4, autostart...lol

    Cons: rides like a brick at times..

    My Fathers Car — I hate driving this car, but it is pretty fast for a stock sedan, and very practical. It has had normal wear and tear but still rips pretty good. Its really good for a front wheel drive car for drifting in the snow.

    Pros: Quick, decent for drifting, Practical

    Cons: Boring to drive, Looks like every other car
