    2002 Chevrolet Malibu - LS

    Pros: I really don't know

    Cons: That I can't turn up all the dash board lights to turn on the dome light--you have to turn on the some light on the dome

    Advice: There are a lot so resale wont be too good so get the price down.

    Bought one for my mom and I was surprised at how well it does considering that they are seen all over. I like the fact that there is good easy visability out of all the windows.

    2002 Chevrolet Malibu - Base

    Pros: good shoulder and leg room (for me ;-)

    Cons: headlights still on (10-20 sec) after switching of engine. A/c comes on when defog windshild.

    Advice: to buy - good bang for your buck

    Good engine, relatively smooth (but sometimes slow to shift down) transmission, comfortable to stear. When engine idle sometimes low frequency noise (resonance?). Bad rear view (when driving backward). Actually I'm from Toronto, but Zip code doesn't fit :-(

    2002 Chevrolet Malibu - LS

    Pros: keyless entry to doors and trunk.

    Cons: I wish you could fold down the back seats from inside the car

    Advice: Research cars before you look - then check out lots - then research again before you even test drive cars.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well it drove, especially how it took curves and corners. I was impressed at the smoothness of the ride and the visibility with the windshield. I am continually impressed with the overall appearance and performance of this vehicle.
