I drive my Dad's 1998 Malibu with a 3.1L V6, and everyone says it's horrible. Well, in all the time we've had it, we never had problems with it. We got 43 mpg highway, average 30mpg city, 25mpg with my teenage driving. It has great performance, it's comfortable, and I've had very few problems with it. However the problems I had were from me putting off regular maintenance. The car handles great, and when I get on the highway I never have to worry about coming on too slow. It stops well, turns well. This car is awesome
The performance and gas mileage. Also the exterior looks good. The sound system is also pretty good, and maintenance never costs all that much compared to other cars
Interior can use some work, like the back seat. It feels like it has little support and you feel whatever is in the trunk
