    I bought it! Drives really nice. Poor guy that sold this to me had to pay $950 to certify. (Exhaust, Alignment, front springs etc)
    Which brings up a good point. Don't say to someone Cert. and e-tested before you actually have it tested.

    I have an 02 and it's been a real reliable car. The 97-03 Malibus are one of GM's better platforms.
