"Well maintained auto that had the lower end re-sealed because it was a leaker. Now no leaks pluss when apart new mains and bearings were installed at 110,000 miles. Car presently used as a tow vechile for our motor home and our personal vechile while in Florida. Has a Blue Ox towing plate and wiring system installed. Newer tires installed at 108,000 miles. All mileages used are approximate based on memory. Sale of this vechile contingent upon motor home selling first. Presently in Michigan"

"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."

"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."
