The most important thing others should know about my car is that I am proud of it and keep it up as well as possible. It is the first one I ever decided upon myself.

I have liked my Chevy Malibu pretty well, however it is getting older now. I like the size in general, but there is very little space to hold things in the front seat. This becomes a problem with the amount I would like to have in reach when I am in the car. The gas mileage used to be better than it is now. I prefer mileage I used to get. Perhaps it is a tire issue, as I believe I need new ones. It could use a paint job, as well. I like the ease of driving with this model.

Reliability in Design Means Cash Savings. By owning a vehicle designed to last a long time, even with a lot of driving, the potential savings to a car's owner is potentially high.

While I've owned other brands of cars, I keep coming back to the Chevy products due to their reliability and possible longevity. This Malibu is now 16 years old and while it is showing its age it is still reliable provided we do our part in paying attention to it's idiosyncrasies, rather like an elderly person who has a bummed up leg and poor vision. I feel safe in assuming that this car has at least four more years of service in it as other of my Chevy products have had.

It has to many unreliable plastic brackets and connectors.

A/c problems constantly. Comfortable ride. Have had intermittent starting problems. Mileage is good and it has a good amount of power, it handles good on windy roads. Have had problems with power window motor failure. We also have had problems with the mud flaps coming off. The headliner is deteriorating. We have had various failures with electrical fixtures: tail light brackets and head light sockets.
