    A Good Starter Car — White paint means every scratch and scuff shows Performance- Its good accelerating after it gets traction but it chirps on the go Build Quality- Cheap, but easy to take apart whenever I'm running wires for whatever Appearance- Cheap Plastic Interior, It's clean outside because of new headlights, fresh paint and some Konig Tantrum Rims. Some nice body lines, but it really is just a common car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cheap, common, easy to fix

    Cons: Cheap, Common, Not too many luxuries

    2000 Chevy Malibu — Before it turned into crap (see above pic), it was ok... It wouldn't go above 60 without shaking violently and it was in constant need of repairs. I put in a new stereo, and the factory one was freaking hard to get out, we eventually had to cut into the plastic around the old one to make the hole big enough to get the new one into. It was a fun car to drive when I felt like my life wasn't threatened. It got moderate gas mileage.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cute, good gas mileage, easy to work on

    Cons: almost everything else.

    Good Beginner Car — Okay car, had a lot of problems...overheated, sensor was bad, Had to change my brakes every 3 months cause of a recall that was never fixed on the car. It was a V6 so power wasnt to bad. Other than that it was a good first car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable when it wasnt overheating!

    Cons: A LOT of problems

    2000 Chevy Malibu — This car has very good performance. It has a 3.1 L V6 under the hood that pushes around 170 hp. the 0 to 60 is right around 8 seconds, and the handling is very tight and smooth. The build quality in this car is just amazing, the road noise is great even without the SVC turned on. I have not needed to do any repairs other than an oil change in the 5 months that i have owned it. Moving on to the appearce and styling. The exterior styling is very good and the interior is done very well. Overall this is my favorite car so far out of the 6 that i have owned, fun to drive, has good looks inside and out, and has been a joy to own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, handling, sound system, styling.

    Cons: gas mileage

    Shame! Gm/chev — looks good. Drives Okay. But too much quality problems naturally. Extremely unreliable and too much money/time spend on repairing. The engine gasket leaking, breaks problem, water pump broken, A/C did not work well, engine light and ABS light always ON, starter gone twice in old winter, passage side power window fails etc. The dangerous one was No Power on highway -- i was almost been killed. This car has almost no value (110k miles) so I just drive it in the weekend for shopping (if I could start it).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Size

    Cons: liability, quality

    Well Worth The Money I Paid For It — indestructible, extremely reliable, however it has poor mileage, and the infamous spot of rust that appears near the gas tank on the rear fender. no complaints otherwise, I paid 2 grand for it used and got over 50,000 miles out of it so far. My guess is that it'll keep running well as long as it has some TLC

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, parts are cheap and easy to find

    Cons: around 20mpg average with the infamous 3.1L V6

    I Love My "beck!" — My car's performance actually tested 2 b perfect 4 it 2 b a used car. It doesn't and hasn't really needed any repairs. Its overall appearance is perfect expect 4 a tiny dent and a scratch it had in it nd da paint peeled off a lil' on da front bumper. In da inside da only thing dat was nd is messed is one of da visers. It had about 100,000 miles on it nd I'm buyin' it 4 $4,995. I love drivin' my car b/c it's dependable, good on gas, has great workin' cruise control, a/c, a lovely speaker system, nd rides oh so smooth!

    Pros: B/c it's a smooth ridin', spacious kinda car 2 drive nd it's perfect if you have kids!!

    Cons: No reason otha than if you unplug da battery da radio will lock up b/c of da antitheft system built in it!

    I Like It For The Most Part — It gets the job done i suppose, there is a lot of body roll on corners and the brakes always seem to put up a fight. it does accelerate quickly enough to overtake many cars on the highway so that's a plus. the fuel consumption isn't bad either if you don't drive with a heavy foot. it feels relatively solid but it seems to be a very heavy car. this would explain the body roll and massive weight shifting when braking and accelerating (also the doors weigh a million tonnes). its not a bad looking car on the outside, mine has the optional spoiler for a sportier look, but its not too great on the inside. its cramped in the front and back... it looks bigger from outside. i had a dodge spirit and the interior was much larger even though it was a smaller car. it is fairly fun as you have to wrestle it around bends at 80km/h (i live in the country) so it feels a lot faster. overall not bad :)

    Pros: affordable family car with a reasonably quick engine

    Cons: odd things seem to break, not sporty despite its appearance.

    Cons: hard to find tires

    2000 Chevy Malibu — Overall this is a pretty good car. My only major complaints are that the cooling system and brake rotors have consistantly been a problem on this car. In the 4 years I have owned it it has been in the garage about once every 6 months. Good value for the money overall.

    Pros: loaded with features for low price, roomy interior and trunk, decent power

    Cons: cooling system and brakes have consistantly had problems, relatively small gas tank
