Reliable 2000 Chevy Malibu with PW, Power Doors, Cruise, and in Outstanding Condition!
My mom is currently 94 years old and bought a brand new 2001 Chevy Malibu in 2001. It was the base sedan (4-door) model but was very nice to drive and had only 42,625 miles on it when I hit a telephone pole on Valentine's Day of this year (2018) and totaled it. We liked the car so much I searched nationwide for about 7 weeks for a similar model. I drove about 2 hours to another city and bought a 2000 Malibu (exact same color) with less than 51,000 miles on it. Good Carfax. Paid $3,000 cash and Carfax valued it between $5,200 to $5,800! Almost immaculate condition, as our previous 2001 model was. We bought the car because we were totally familiar with it, it had served us extremely well before, and we did not need or want the new contraptions that come on all the new cars (GPS, keep-you-in-your-lane feature, sensors,..you name it). My dad always said the more it has on it, the more that can and will break down on you. He was right!
