2004 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Bought the car new in 2004, and have had very little trouble with it. Around 22,000 miles, i had to replace the brakes, tires, and Chevy took care of the tie rod ends (good on them, as it was abought 2 months out of warranty). Other than that, no real issues. Sometimes the alternator light comes on when I accelerate hard, but only for a second or two. Gas mileage is great, I put a K&N air filter in it and get regularly 35+ mpg on the highway, better than most 4 cylinders I have driven.
Good mileage, power, comfortable.
real time fuel mileage, on occasion it takes a couple tries to get started
