I have a 1993 Dodge Caravan with 316,000 miles that still runs good. Yours is a testimony to taking care of a car, it will last. Also, highway miles are the best for a car.

Well, we did it, 300,000 miles, and still it burns no oil and runs like a top, September 18th, 2015, and would buy another in a heartbeat. According to Kelley Blue Book, it is worth 1,500 dollars.
I have no doubt that this was one of the finest autos and engines that Chevrolet ever built (and I have been driving Chevy's since 1961 (1949 fastback with starter button on the dash was my first, followed by my two toned Chevy "Star fire Six").
If you can find one with less than 150,000 miles on it, BUY IT, it still has 150,000 left.
Only problems were oil pan gasket, and front wheel bearings. Otherwise no problems!
Still wish I would have kept my 1958 two door Chevy Impala Super Sport... paid $800.00 for it in the early sixties when I was in high school, and gave it to my "little brother" just before I went into the service in 1968... now it is worth $80,000. 11 MPG, and a rocket!!

They did not make a 1958 SS or Super Sport. I have had 5 of them, all 60s vintages. Also 2 Camaro SS and a Chevelle SS. But you are right about this year Malibu. I bought my mother one and she loves it! By the way, 1958 wasn't so popular for a long while. People were more into the 55 and 57. Now the 1958 is a hot collectible as a one year body style. Especially convertibles.

Hello again, it's me with the Chevy 2004 Malibu LT.
Just turned 305,000 miles (90% highway), still not burning oil, and will replace the shocks for the first time next week (has the originals).
Still love my auto, looking to taking a trip with it back and forth from Virginia to New York... mechanics said I will have no problem (the cruise control still works fine)... and I actually think this auto will make 400,000 miles... will keep you up to date.
And if you see one with 150,000 or less, buy it, follow the maintenance directions and you will have this car until you hit at least 300,000 miles. It's a great auto for a college aged child, or a grandchild just learning to drive... worry free, and reliable... trust me on this one folks :+)}}}

My wife finally retired, and the 2004 Chevy now has 310,000 miles on it and it still purrs... and no oil burning, just changed the coolant, and the mechanic wanted to know if I would like to set up the next appointment for the 450,000 mile check up :+)}}} I told him I would think about it... and now three mechanics at the local Chevy dealership have expressed an interest in purchasing my little auto!
We will be looking at another Malibu sometime this year, and keep this one as a back up. All the best.
If you can find a 2004 that is well maintained, it will last you at least 300,000 miles...
