1999 Malibu -- An Appealing Expression of American Excellence

1999 Chevrolet Malibu
Designed with high standards for quality, reliability and value in mind for families, Chevrolet Malibu has become a symbol of American Excellence. As such, it has become a cornerstone in Chevrolet's Sedan family, and one of the division's leading conquest vehicles.

'Malibu has proven successful at luring new customers to Chevrolet,' said Lew Elbert, Malibu brand manager. 'Nearly half of Malibu buyers surveyed traded in an import or domestic competitive vehicle. Malibu is winning them over with great styling and an impressive list of standard features.'

Malibu continues to be a favorite of automotive critics as well, garnering several awards in 1998. Anita and Paul Lienert named Malibu to their list of 'Top Ten Vehicles for 1998.' Malibu also received a 'Recommended Buy' from Consumer Guide Automobile Book, '98 Edition, and was named 'Best in Class' by Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine (12/97).

Recently, Malibu earned top honors in Strategic Vision's survey of new car owners, which measures the complete ownership experience -- buying, owning and driving. Malibu outscored all entries in both the midsize and compact segments. 'The Strategic Vision award confirms that Malibu is the kind of car Chevrolet set out to build,' said Elbert, 'because it scores consistently well across all categories.'

Much of Malibu's appeal comes from its impressive list of standard features. Items that are extra-cost options on many competitors -- air conditioning, battery-rundown protection, four-wheel antilock brakes, a four-speed automatic transmission, Tilt-WheelTM steering column, power trunk release, child security rear-door locks, tachometer, rear-seat heat ducts, Passlock®, rear-seat safety belt child comfort guides -- are all standard on Malibu.

Malibu LS adds even more features, with standard power windows with driver's Express Down feature, power door locks, Remote Keyless Entry System, electronic speed control, an AM/FM stereo cassette sound system, split-folding rear seat and a powerful 3100 V6 engine -- just to name a few. In fact, the Malibu LS is so well-equipped that the only options available are leather seats, CD player or CD player with remote cassette player, electric sliding sunroof and mud guards.

Malibu's rigid body has been designed in the spirit of 'American Excellence,' with precision panel fit and finish. This rigid body structure enables precise tuning of Malibu's suspension and an effective balance of confident handling and smooth ride.

Much of Malibu's value is attributable to the durability of its components. Its spark plugs are designed to last up to 100,000 miles before they need changing, and the engine coolant will last as long as 5 years or up to 150,000 miles before needing replacement.

Únder normal usage, the transmission fluid doesn't need to be serviced. And, every exterior body panel (except the roof) is made of two-sided galvanized steel to fight corrosion, giving Malibu excellent exterior corrosion protection.

For 1999, Medium Bronzemist Metallic is added as a new exterior paint color option.
