Hi, I just bought a New Chevy Malibu. I had a 2002 V.W. Beetle. After it bled me to death in repair costs and poor gas mileage, I figured it was about time to come back to an American car that got great mileage. I was out in an Enterprise rental car when my Beetle was in the garage. The worse thing the V.W. dealership could have done we to have me out in that Chevy for four days. I loved it and went and bought one! I get 40mpg highway and about 30 around town.
Smooth quiet ride. Roomy, and very comfortable. Great gas mileage.
Only problem I have found is that the center console compartment fits too far back to open and close comfortably .
