I test drove a Malibu LTZ, with a 4cyl before I left for Korea. Wasn't impressed with the motor, so I want to test drive one with a V6.

I've been looking at the Fusion Sports over here thanks to new car sales, and they are very nice. Most expensive out of the three though, with the Malibu being the cheapest. Kia has the best options and warranty though.

last year we were at the various dealers looking at stuff for the wife, so we were in a malibu ltz V6 and they wanted almost 35k and i was like im not paying 35 for a malibu even if it had a rocket engine. it was too small anyway especially if your used to a bonnie. i was just playing with the "build your own" and the same car is about 27k now but thats still to expensive for a midsize.

Chevy = $28k
Kia = $30k
Ford = $34k

All fully equipped, no skimping if I'm buying new. I could probably get the Ford cheaper through AAFES new car sales though.

I can help you.

Stop thinking Kia and change the title of your post to something better than it is. Your current title makes me want to ignore your post because it'*
1. Not descriptive
2. Not original
3. Overall prods me the wrong way..


Spell check and a title change are your friends, my friend.

Spell check for what? I've misspelled nothing! I'm too perfect for that, unless I've been drinking.

Also, I would change the title but John hasn't given me those power back yet.

Helllllllp isn't spelled right there ace.

New Regals, looks nice. I'm pretty content with the $1400 price tag from my car, the low taxes on it and overall cheap insurance costs. Yeah I dropped about $3K into it, drive it for 3-5 years and it'll have paid me money.

While help wasn't technically spelled correctly, it was to show enthusiasm. I know you know that. Also, thank you Dan. It'* much appreciated.

I also saw the Korean version of the new Buick Lacrosse today on base. The Daewoo thingy. Thing looked crazy nice.

I don't know what I've dropped into this car. While some of it was mods (CAI, headlights, tint) the other stuff was needed, like the stereo since all the stock stuff was blown up and mixed into a horrible "upgrade" anyway. If I had to guess I'd lose maybe $1k on "mods" another $500 on the stereo.

Also though the trunk lid is leaking so that'* something I wouldn't have to fix, the rear door is effed too. I have the parts to fix those, but they're the wrong color. Also I think the UIM and LIM gaskets are close to taking a dump on me since my car is "using" coolant and it'* not in the oil.

I dunno, I just really like the aspect of a brand new car with no worries for 5-10 years.
