Reliable Transportation. — While not as stylish as my wife would prefer, I find the car reliable, decent transportation. We did have a fuel pump failure @ 139,000 miles this summer ('14) so 10 years old ($800 @ mechanic). However, this is the only failure in the 6 years we owned it other than routine maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Decent transportation that we bought from my parents who were original owners.  

Cons: No really stylish.

Reliable And Fuel Efficient. — Overall i really like this car, i would like if it was a bit more powerful but its ok it does the job. i would recommend it to my friends. since i got it in color gold, i think that is the only thing i would change i am thinking about painting it black ill keep you guys posted on that.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great on gas. A lot of space. Digital display of millage, oil life and gas life.CD player. Great breaks. Very comfortable to drive.

Cons: Not very powerful. Some problems with the front turn lights they stop working every two months or so. Some battery issues.

Overall Good Car — So far at 92,000 I have had to replace the front brakes and rotors and the back brakes and the usual maintenance. I guess mileage isn't too bad considering it's a mid size sedan with a 3.5 liter, gets on average (city) 27 mpg

Pros: heated leather seats, great passing/start off power, traction control, handles well for a mid size sedan, nice stock stereo, adjustable pedals, power seats, roomy inside/trunk, nice interior/material for a domestic

Cons: brakes/rotors wear too fast

I'll Be Seeing These On The Road For A Long Time. — Looks and runs great. Soft suspension very smooth on highway, but too soft for rough roads. Untralux interior holds up very well. Love the Climate control. Very reliable. Lx9 3500 3.5l V6 is a great balance of power and fuel economy that GM is just starting to come around to match using more modern engines.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable!  Luxury feel.  I bet it makes it to 150k+ miles

Cons: Suspension is a little too soft for rough roads.  Too high off ground, lower firmer springs would be nice and are certainly available in the aftermarket.  Minimal Aftermarket parts or body kits.

Not Very Good Unless You Are Good At Working On Cars — Worst car ever, bought it to replace my Grand am, had it about 2 month and started have problems with starting it after I would go places. Took it to the dealership and the couldn't figure out what was wrong with it so they bought it back. On the up side it was good on gas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas mileage

Cons: starting problems

Great Car! — I loved my car! Was fully loaded with tilt steering, telescopic steering wheel, adjustable pedals, fold down passenger seat ,cd, sterio, truck bed lined fold down back seats for more trunk space. Electric seats, sound speed control, automatic start, ect! Good brakes, fast acceleration, smooth ride! It did not need any repairs, interior was nice and kept nice by myself. Gas mileage was freakin awesome, and low cost. This car was fun as hell to drive she was my baby! My getaway mobile! I would recomend this car to anyone who loves chevy!

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

Malibu — This car was well in the beginning, leather interior, not so bad exterior. Ended up costing quite a bit to replace parts, and to even find parts was a hassle. Would not recommend this car to anyone, guzzler, scrap, boo! I dislike everything about this car, getting rid of it! lol

Pros: what?

Cons: everything
