Chevy Malibu

    Anyone driving one? My car got totaled a couple weeks ago (dumb ass would have killed me had he hit my driver's side door instead of my front end) and I think I'm going to get a Malibu. Found one today for $23,700 and with all the rebates and such it got knocked down to $16,900. Hard to pass that up. Can anyone clue me in as to how you like yours?

    I was hoping it wouldn't show up on that thread so I purposely didn't read past the second comment! (I haven't bought it yet, by the way. But I think I will tomorrow.)

    In-laws have one, and just driving that one the few times I have has made me not want one. Just not a solid, durable car.

    For me, it's the typical Chevy (car) experience. Car looks decent, just doesn't hold up well, underpowered and cheap feeling. Used Accord/Civic, dude.

    I have a policy against buying American cars.

    Have a 2004 that has not given me one bit of trouble. No complaints at all.

    Two co-workers also have '04 and '05 Malibus...just as reliable.

    Disagree with buying used Accords/Civics. Not for the cars themselves, but the premium prices they bring as used cars. I've always bought used 'Murrican cars on the cheap. Looked at a Malibu, didn't dislike it but bought a Taurus instead.

    They carry a premium, no doubt. But they're more expensive for a reason.
