After my recent car problems, the decision was unanimous to become a two-car family. We definitely had a strict budget since we are still trying to fix up our german family wagon. (see other posts)
We decided on a well-priced 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx. It’s got a fair share of miles (98000 when we bought it, we’ve gotten her up to 100K). Would like as much advice on how to keep this American beast up and running smoothly for as long as possible. Is there a better oil/filter out there for American cars? Things we can do slowly and before necessary? Any and everything to keep the catastrophic fails at bay (car-willing). Thanks for any info.
Also–this seems like a much more DIY friendly car than our previous. Does anyone have a good reference for DIY on Chevy’s? 'preciate all the help.
