Aren't the Chevrolet Classic and Malibu Classic the same damn thing???

Kind of surprised to see the Tib on that list as well, it's a POS.

Re: Car Value Appreciation/Depreciation

Its crazy to think some cars still have manual doors, locks and all. But it keeps the price down and keeps repair costs down. And for both makes, they have a lot better reliability than when they came out. Would I buy one? A Genesis..YES!!

It depends on the year; it's quite confusing.

But I know why those Malibu Classic's made the list... Dealers always had a ton of them and their resale value was crap. The dealers had them practically all under $7,000. Now with the current used car market, they can raise the prices of them and still sell them.
