About “Gypsy Rose”

I was in Florida over Christmas and New Years visiting my sister's family and happened to see this car on a dealer's used car lot. I've been looking for a nice car to use to keep the miles (and Pennsylvania's dreaded winter road salt) off of Madeira, my Caprice coupe that I've been using daily, and being the end of the month - and the end of the year, for that matter - I thought they might be willing to cut me a deal. Long story short, they were, and I called the airline to cancel my return flight to Philly from the dealership. I got myself a real nice car with under 40,000 miles for about $8,500!

About “Malibu LTZ”

My daily driver/family car. I checked out various other cars in it's class (Camry, Fusion, Accord, Altima, Avenger, etc) and nothing came close. It's powerful 252 h.p. V-6 that still gives an EPA 26 MPG highway was a big factor, but it was more comfortable and handled better than most of the other cars too.
