2003 Chevrolet Malibu Reviews
I bought my car new and have never had any problems with it. The AC switches from internal air to outside air on its own, but I think it's supposed to do that, according to temp inside and out. The struts wore out after 4 yrs , but have not had any major problems and would recommend it for an everyday car for small family or single person.
I owen this car since it had 4 miles on it, and it the best all over car I have owen. Love to drive in the city or open roads. I do not think I have one thing more could be added to the car.
This car is great for travel it does good on gas and is very comfortable on the inside the engine runs great and gets up when it needs to the tranny could be better but it's good for long distance driving at about 26MPG
