Hmmm

8 year old malibu




or 8 year old camry




I guess the only benefit of an 8 year old malibu would be you could tell people you have the same door handles as a corvette.

But Yes the New Malibu's are much much better than the previous 2, and the New Camry's really aren't all that impressive. So it will be nice to see how they age.

8 years? The oldest vehicle I own (other than my quasi-new, assembled 76 CJ5), is my 2002 Blazer (75K). And I'm letting that one go this fall and looking into a new Trailblazer or other 'downsized' suv. Although I'd really like to get a CTS.

2000 Dakota Quad Cab (4.7L/2WD). I've had it eight years and just put the first non brake pads/tires repairs into this truck this fall: ball joints (paid for by Chrysler as a soft recall), TREs, and a rear pinion seal. It's driven daily and had pulled boats and ATVs all over.

1998 Mercury Grand Marquis (de Sade edition) 140K+ - runs like a new Toyota (quiet, smooth) and gets mid 20s MPG on trips up north. My wife does her Hospice home visits with it, so it's driven all over every day. No major mechanical repairs to date.

1988 Eldorado Biarritz. Daily driven (now by a teenager) and runs like a top, only issues are some leaking seals (early days of aluminum engines at GM). Everything works except the lumbar adjusters on the seats (the motors run, but I suspect the bags have just dried out and split). The only major repair it had was a gas tank replacement (it had about the last steel gas tank and it rusted through on the top).

1978 Corvette. Okay, it's been a toy virtually all of it's life, but it's still 30 years old, built at about the lowest point in the GM quality curve, and other than brakes, it's had no major mechanical work in that time.

Not everyone wants to buy a new car every 5 years.

I would really like to see detroit pump out a boring car that ran like a top for 20 years. But it seems they only want customers like hackfab who think they need to buy something diffrent as soon as thier loan payments end.
