Re: I'm one of you guys now.
Wow this thread came back from the dead didn't it.
Anyway, I was the opposite of a GM fan because of my family's past experience with them. But then I got my '98 Malibu with 145,000mi on it in '06 and drove it till August '09 and 187,000mi without it giving me any major, non maintenance related issues. In fact I just talked to the guy who bought it from me, and other than welding up the rusted exhaust, he hasn't done a thing to it and its now got almost 195,000mi. Maybe they've gotten their act together and are making good cars again, but I still don't think I would buy one new.
1996 Mercury Grand Marquis GS ~89,000mi, Willow Green inside and out. It's very green.
1998 Chevrolet Malibu Base V6 187,000mi (sold)
