Pros

Automatic everything

Cons

few surface sratches

The Standard — More to come as I go, right now, absolutely everything that I wanted. Car has automatic everything, including a remote keyless entry. Car has just about the same gas mileage as the lumina thought it gets better mielage on the highway. Car's engine looks to be easy to work on as it is a V-6 3.1L. So far, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable car that will get you to what you need to go.

Perfect For A Criminal And A Clean Getaway — Good performance from 3.1 liter v6 sporty suspension, and good traction from 215 width tires reliable as hell, and I beat the snot out of it cars last forever if taken care of interior is good but has rental-ish feel Very common car, looks are lacking Minimal customiztion options

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Large Reliable Car — The car has been very reliable & handles well. The leather has held up nicely & has great space for everything! V6 provides a lot of power to it as well. Wish more people would want a Chevy in CA rather than a honda or toyota though. Market value should be higher than what they are going for. Never had any major problems with this car ...

Pros

I would buy another someday.

Cons

Not a six seater, only a 5

65

It Is A Really Great Car.i Would Recommend This Car To A Friend. — I love my car. Gold Malibu. Tan interior. Drives efficiently. Great on the gas.I would buy another someday. I would love to have a sun roof in this car, but can't have all the possitives, and no negatives thats just life. It has a CD player, AC, electronic seats, tilts, spacious compartments. But no way of plugging in my IPOD. It is fun to drive, and fits my personality. It drives, very well, but when stopping its body frame shifts and squeaks. No it is not the brakes, guys. I have not had to make any repairs, other than minor wear repairs. It is a really great car.I would recommend this car to a friend.

Good Communting Car — pretty good car to own. Realiable and easy to maintian. I think it was a good every day car and the only reason I got a different car was for more space for the family. No major problems while I had it.

Pros

Performance, respetable fuel economy, quiet cabin.

Cons

some cheap-like materials inside the car, high depretiation.

65

An American Car With An European Engine — No as refined as its other competitors as the camry or accord, the overall impression is fair for the price. The cabin is quiet enough and the controls are not impressive but modest. The 3.1 engine performance is the strong point in this car. The ergonomics are good.
