I bought my 1997 Malibu 3.1 New. I have had the key chain fix, and leaking gasket problem 60,000 miles around 73,000 put in used tranny. Now 2016 Dec 28 had my next leak gasket fixed. I really like my auto and feel sad that it has too many problems, My first new car was 1968 Olds Delta no problem 1977 Chev Monte drove it out no problem. Next a 1983 Delta Olds I had it when I retired bought the 1997 Malibu had problems.

Do you drive a 1997 CHEVROLET MALIBU?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
