2001 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
I've driven this car for over 6 years now and am very surprised with its reliability and comfort. I wasn't expecting much with all the trouble I'd had in the 70's and 80's with GM cars, but I'd driven a Chevy Corsica for work and was impressed, so I decided I'd give GM one last chance. I don't exactly follow the book when it comes to maintenance either and this car has been very forgiving. It now has 115k on the odometer and has given me few problems. The transmission needed rebuilding under warranty and I can't give the brakes very high marks, but other than that, it's been great.
Very comfortable seats and well designed interior.
I wished they had somehow given it a better braking system and watch out for that tranny! Otherwise, you could do a lot worse than this car!
