I bought a Malibu today

I never thought I'd buy a FWD, but I ended up getting a 2011 Malibu today. I have been DDing my 5.7 ram, but I needed a truck to replace my Durango for my work truck and I needed something for a DD that got better millage. So now I'm selling my Durango and now have a better DD.

They had a bunch of Camaro verts sitting out there and a couple other cars that were very tempting, but I resisted and got the car I had planned to get.

hey, there is no need for excuses
that is a car that makes sense in many ways
we have such a thing among ours

and i do not talk about the hemi
the opel is sold as a buick regal in the u.s.
it is surely one of the most boring looking cars we ever owned, but it is GREAT in many ways, the way it eats up the miles (800miles (1300km) in a day no prob), fast 135 mph (done) and very good milage...

so congrats on a comfortable, safe and fuel efficient car

I wish, but we have a family of 5. I'll get there. I don't need to jump to far ahead. This is a first step to getting a 5th gen. I've still got a 4th gen vert in the garage just waiting to be put together. That should hold me over while I get everything else in line.
