About “Poncho”

Late last year, it was my Torino that got destroyed. A few months ago, it was my wife Sandi's '02 Malibu. We found this car at an auction of reposessed and off-lease, bank-owned cars. It was the nicest car there that would suit our needs, and we were very nicely surprised when we won the auction! Since we bought it, we haven't been anything but happy with it. Its a lot more fun than I expected- It accelerates and handles like a BMW 3-Series, but with better gas mileage and more interior room! (And I like the styling better, too!)

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.
