"My Malibu has run for forever and I'm just now getting to the point where I want to get a new car - it's reliable and gets me from A to B with very few issues.
I drove it with over 100k miles round trip over 4k miles and it ran great the whole trip."
Cons: "JUST NOT COMFORTABLE WITH ITS DEPENDABILITY."

"MY '02 MALIBU WAS PURCHASED IN JULY '03 WITH 21K MILES ON IT AND NOW HAS 56.4K -- I ONLY DRIVE 3K A YEAR. INTAKE GASKETS REPLACED ABOUT 53K -- $640. DIDN'T DO MY HOMEWORK ON THIS CAR, AS IT GOT A LOT OF BLACK MARKS FROM CONSUMER REPORTS -- WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS CAR. IN '02, GM WAS PUTTING ITS EFFORT INTO THE TRUCK LINE. BRAKE LINES RUSTED OUT, $500 TO REPLACE -- ABS BRAKE LIGHT IS ON AND NO ONE CAN GIVE ME AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS -- STAY AWAY FROM THIS MODEL/YEAR MALIBU. I THINK THE '03 MODELS GOT A BETTER RATING THOUGH."
