"This is a great 4-door sedan. It is fun to drive, very comfortable and gets great gas mileage. Highway average at 75 MPH is 28-30 MPG. Trunk has lots of storage; two golf bags with fold up carts with room to spare. Other than oil, brakes and tires I have not had maintenance expenses on this vehicle."
"my dad bought a 2000 malibu ls in 2003, with about 35,000 miles on it. when i graduated from highschool, he gave it to me for college. i had it from 2004 to 2006, and would have if i hadn't totalled it last winter.
when i got rid of it, it had 89,000 miles, and no significant repairs. during the over 50,000 miles my dad and i had it, the only time it was in the shop was for a PCV valve replacement and a new battery.
i had no problems with brakes, although i hear that's a common concern. the only complaint i had was the driver's seat: on trips lasting more than 2 or 3 hours it becomes quite uncomfortable.
this was a wonderful car, and i would recommended one to anybody shopping for a used car. i wish i still had mine."
