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.
This is actually my wife Rose's car, and it's shown in her garage too (see MAXXINE), but since she doesn't hang out on Motortopia much anymore I thought it was time to show the car off in my garage too. It has over 65,000 miles on it, but I try to keep after it both mechanically and cosmetically and I like to think it shows. It's never let us down and it looks like a much newer car. The paint and upholstery still look like new, with the exception of a couple of minor "this's" and "that's" that any 7 year old car will pick up.
