Selling my 1998 Malibu

(I put this ad up on Craig's List, but it deletes after 7 days. This way, I can just copy text from my own blog and re-post it... if I need to.)

1998 Chevrolet Malibu LS Sedan 4D - $2500
Reply to: sale-206443256@craigslist.org or sandiegojohn@gmail.com

Good Condition - Kelley Blue Book Value $3,565

Vehicle Details:
Engine: V6 3.1 Liter
Transmission: Automatic
Drivetrain: FWD
Mileage: 93,000

Features:
Air Conditioning, Tilt Wheel, ABS (4-Wheel), Power Steering, Cruise Control, Power Seat, Power Windows, XM/AM/FM/CD Stereo, Power Door Locks, Dual Front Air Bags, Moon Roof

General Description:
This is a great car that has been extremely dependable and reliable. I just replaced it with a new wagon to hold my bikes and scuba gear.

  • good gas mileage
  • remote trunk release & remote keys
  • automatic windows & doors
  • power door locks
  • 4 door mid-size sedan
  • leather seats
  • comfortable ride & very roomy
  • antilock brakes
  • spacious seating inside
  • attached cargo net in the trunk

What it needs:
The air conditioning does not work. Mechanic’s estimate on 08/29/06 is $900 to replace the compressor, dryer, hoses, etc. (Auto shop written estimate is in the glove box.) The mechanic does good work but is pricey, so it should cost less to fix the A/C. There are two small scratches on the hood and a dent above the right rear tire.
