1998 Chevy Malibu base model

1998 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan
My wife and I purchased this car 6
years ago with much research and a
visit to the auto show. We've had some
problems here and there, master
cylinder, engine computer system
replacement, alternator. These repairs
were spread out over the six years.We
originally wanted a Camry but it would
have cost $24,000 compared to 18,500 we
paid for the Malibu. Even with the
above mentioned repairs, this car has
been excellent considering it's been
our only car. Both my wife and I drive
this car everyday and it gets driven
quite a bit every day. The gas milage
is still great, and highway performance
is excellent. Had we had a second car
this car would be in mint condition.
Still happy with this car.
Roomy, plenty of rear seat room. Nice
trunk (I use it to hall my keyboard and
amplifier)V6 is powerfull yet fuel
efficient. Starts everyday for six
years. Heating and air is great.
Repairs are relativley cheap. Rock
Better sound system, security system is
not easy to understand and operate.
Roof leaks in the rear seats(rear
