Farewell Trudy... Hello Tootie, My BRAND NEW Chevy Malibu! Let Me Introduce You to Her


Silver 2010 Chevy Malibu LTZIt is with a heavy heart that I have to say goodbye to Trudy, the taupe-colored Chevy Malibu that I was driving as part of the Gotta Love Chevy Moms Time Out program.  It seems that there was something wrong with her transmission and she needed to be examined by the service professionals at Chevy.

The good news is, that now I get to introduce you to Tootie (Two-tee, because she's the second), my BRAND NEW Silver Chevy Malibu and boy is she a beauty!  Being that there was something wrong with Trudy, I got to experience firsthand, the service that the folks at Davis Chevrolet can provide and I was really impressed!

Everyone was extremely nice and friendly and bent over backwards to make sure that Trudy was taken care of and that I was in a brand new Malibu LTZ within 45 minutes!  Evan, my contact at Davis Chevrolet, even washed and gassed up Tootie and brought her to me himself!  When I first started working with Chevy, Evan had told me that their service was second to none and that there was nothing they wouldn't do to make the customer happy.  I have to admit that at first I thought, "Yeah right!  That's what ALL salesmen will tell you".  But, Davis Chevrolet made a believer out of me!  They really do care about their customers and want them to be thrilled with every Chevy purchase!

Now, let me formally introduce you to Tootie!  Because she is an LTZ model just like my original car, Trudy, she has all of the same wonderful features I've already fallen in love with, such as the Bose sound system, OnStar and remote vehicle starter system.  BUT, Tootie is so very SPORTY looking!  Check out her interior!  This silver sedan might look unassuming on the outside, but on the inside, she's revving to go!  I love this red and black, all leather, two-tone interior!  When I'm driving Tootie out on the open road, I now feel like Mario Andretti!  I hate to say it, but although I really liked Trudy...I think I already like Tootie BETTER!

      Hi Rita!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and checking her out! I do really like driving her and giving her back in another few weeks is going to be HARD! I’m a big fan of your blog and have been following you for a while, so I’m so happy that you’ve stopped by my neck of the woods too! :-) Have a wonderful day!
