2003 Chevrolet Malibu Review
retnurse02 says:
LOVE! Cute and extremely reliable! Only have had 1 problem in my 5 years of ownership. Thought it was the fuel pump so it was replaced, still not turning on. Come to find out it was a simple fuse that needed replacing! Inexpensive to work on. Great gas mileage. I think the interior is nice and it is comfortable. I now keep it as a second vehicle because of its reliability. It is definitely worth the 3,000 I paid for it! Was hit in the side by a huge deer. It stood up wonderfully. The hood nor doors were knocked out of line (even though the insurance said it was totaled.....) Replaced with salvage parts and fixed for under $100.00. I love it and would recommend it to anyone!!!

Great Large Reliable Car — The car has been very reliable & handles well. The leather has held up nicely & has great space for everything! V6 provides a lot of power to it as well. Wish more people would want a Chevy in CA rather than a honda or toyota though. Market value should be higher than what they are going for. Never had any major problems with this car ...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of space, reliable, & very smooth drive

Cons: Not so great on re-sale. & I have no idea why.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good car overall. drives well decent fuel economy

Cons: no great power for v6

............................. — its a v6... good for passing ppl but sucks the gas. the back seat has lots of leg room. low maintenance for the one I own. could handle better around corners. wish it was better on gas. will buy a smaller car next time, maybe a TDI jetta

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: big trunk and lots of leg room

Cons: fuel mileage

Perfect For A Criminal And A Clean Getaway — Good performance from 3.1 liter v6 sporty suspension, and good traction from 215 width tires reliable as hell, and I beat the snot out of it cars last forever if taken care of interior is good but has rental-ish feel Very common car, looks are lacking Minimal customiztion options

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

Pros: Its relaible and does what it was made to do

Cons: Bland, blens in with other cars

Good Car If Your Not Conserned About Looks — It is a nice car to have for a 17 year old, I like that is has 4 doors and it has a little pick up to it. But there are lots and lots of cars better than this one.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: smooth ride, comfortable

Cons: looks

2003 Chevrolet Malibu — Typical 4 dr sedan. Remarkable quality, 230,000 miles and minimal repairs needed. Has a V6 so get up and go is there, not spectacular, but enough. Not so much 'fun' to drive, but it gets the job done. Good, reliable car for day to day driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RELIABLE

Cons: Very Common
