Said goodbye to the GA

Yesterday was bittersweet. After nearly 14 years together I traded in the Grand Am. Decided it was time. Just over 151k miles together. This is the last pic I took of it after washing it late last year.



Traded her in on a 2014 Malibu LTZ with 10k miles on it.





Pretty well loaded and a really nice ride. More options than I know what to do with.

They only gave me $1200 for it. But it had a banged up fender, paint issues, broken fog lights, buckled dash, leaking PS rack, small oil leak and a wheel speed sensor issue that I never did track down.

Haha....I think I'll skip the stopes on this one....nothing really goes well with Champaign Silver...

I was definitely sad to let the GA go. The Malibu feels massive compared it it when driving.

Can't send out enough thanks to this forum for all the help it's been over the past 12 years.

Yeah, pretty much the same problem I have with new cars... more toys and gadgets than I need or even know how to use. I'm bewildered by most of the infotainment/navigation systems in new cars.

Anyway, congrats on the new ride!

For now, just to drive it. That's not to say I haven't already been looking into the aftermarket, but there isn't really much available at the moment...which is probably for the best..

So are the folks trying to figure out how to sell them, use them and fix them...
