"Bought this car new for my wife. Have replaced head gasket, water pump, alternator. No other major problems. Now have 78K miles and still running strong and is very reliable. My wife does not want me to get her another car until this one stops running.
Not looking to sell but just wanted to see its current value. Although, I like what I see in the new Malibus."
"I bought a 2001 new and my wife has used it the way wives use cars. Hauling kids, girlscouts, groceries, it's even been used on vacations. Only a few minor problems in 95000 miles. The A/C switch went out twice, and the brakes needed replacing every 30000 miles. We're sending it to college with my son and looking at a 2008 Malibu as a replacement. Dependable car at a decent price."
