    I Love It — it depends what kind of gas you put into it, if you have premmium it will be fast but if its 85 octaine it will lage in proformance. over all its a great car to own if all you want is to go from point a to point b with no problems.

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

    Pros: Solid Car

    Cons: The paint

    College Car — I like the overall quality of the car and it gas mileage, the main reason I have this car is because it is free for college. It performs well but has times when the oil light comes on when the oil level is fine. Also the radio dial has fallen off for some reason.

    Pros: It is free

    Cons: Needs Body work from hitting deer and trees

    Malibu — I loved the way this car drove on highways and through town. It was great on gas but the breaks always gave me a little trouble. The callipers kept sticking so it would really mess up the rotors. Besides that I loved it and I really miss it. It was an amazing car until it got a blown head gasket. RIP

    Pros: The v6 was amazing. It was great on the highway.

    Cons: Some small electrical problems.

    Nice First Car — Performance - Nice acceleration, 115mph chip limit?, haven't hit anything yet so i like the handling. Build Quality - Had to replace the master control switch, thats pretty much it. Appearance - Bland kinda granny car style outside, alright interior appearance. Cost of Ownership - Nice gas millage, same old same old maintenance. Fun Factor - I drive it like sports car and it feels like it too.

    Pros: Acceleration

    Cons: 115mph limit

    Cons: was great for commuter, but aside from that not so good.
