About Chevrolet Classic

Exclusively for use by fleets and car rental companies, Chevrolet Classic was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division from 2004 to 2005, in 2008 and 2013 as a mid-size car. Originally introduced as the fifth-generation Chevrolet Malibu in the North American market, Classic, in fact, was the successor of Malibu since which stopped production in 2003. But since the 2008 and 2013 Classic was actually the Malibu Classic, so we mainly focus on the 2004-2005 Classic, which is also an important role as rental or fleet orders.
Chevrolet Classic made its debut in 2004 and was produced at the Epsilon platform as a 4-door sedan. Featured the Chevrolet emblem on the front grille and N-body, Chevrolet Classic was offered an extended wheelbase. Sharing platform with the Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile Achieva, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am, Chevrolet Classic also had some similar engine options with them. It was powered by 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 144 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque and this engine sent power to the front wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. As most Malibu models are produced for retail, Classic to some extent increases its sales volume in fleet sales.

Chevrolet Classic Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Since working as a rental car, Chevy Classic boasts durability and high quality. However, for the sake of occupants' life safety, you still should be prepared for these common problems on Classic just in case:
First, an awful issue in a vehicle is the engine failure, which is also a common problem on Chevrolet Classic. Though different vehicles may have different symptoms about engine issue, some experienced Classic drivers are kind enough to provide some symptoms on this vehicle. At the beginning, you may hear a whining or squealing noise from the front of the vehicle and smell burnt oi odor in the vehicle; then the vehicle runs roughly, the engine misfires, stalls and even suffers from starting. The engine performance will also reduce dramatically so that the vehicle would lose power while acceleration and has poor fuel economy. Once the cooling system also fails, all these symptoms will aggravate. Therefore, please make sure the Classic intake manifold gasket, exhaust manifold gasket, spark plug, fuel filter, and driver are working properly all the time.
Second, another common problem in Chevrolet Classic is the suspension failure, which actually is not formed and understood by many Classic drivers. Most people think it is not a big deal and only brings about an unsteady driving experience and they attach no importance to it. In fact, although the beginning grinding noises from underneath the vehicle and intense car vibration only lead to annoying uncomfortable driving, the tilting vehicle and poor handling due to uneven tire wear and unintentionally steering would put you in danger. Thus, once similar symptoms appear, the thorough inspection on the Classic steering knuckle, shock absorber, and coil spring insulator is indispensable.
Staying away from unexpected car accidents while driving depends on how well you perform routine maintenance on vulnerable parts of your Chevrolet Classic in daily life. You should be aware of this fact that some auto parts of the vehicle are bound to wear and tear more quickly than others due to fragile materials and harsh working conditions. Thus, parts such as steering wheel, wheel cover, windshield wiper, wiper blade, door lock, headlight, tailgate lock, hood cable, door handle and brake light switch should be maintained periodically as they are vital for a safe and comfortable driving experience, but they are always exposed to high frequency of usage and adverse working environment.
