1998 Chevrolet Malibu
I purchased car with 65,000 miles, now it has over 316,000 miles. Original engine and transmission. No major problems other than the lower intake manifold gasket that I replaced at 200,000. Great car

The most costly car I have ever owned. Brake, coolant and engine problems. Will never buy a GM again.
