A Malibu In The Medwest — I lovethat my car is sleek, but is still practical. The price was right. It gets great gas mileage and it is very comfortable to drive. It handles well on the icy snowy streets where I live and is as atractive as any luxury car.

Great! — Love the take off it feels like a sports car but drives like a luxury car. Gas is great only takes about $35-$45 to fill up. My car is black and has black leather and suede inside. It is fun to drive.

One Of Chevy's Best Performaning Cars - And A Real Sleeper! — In my opinion, this is the best sleeper car Chevy's made in a long long time! It's amazingly fun to drive, quick to respond, full of power and pep...just an overall joy! I wouldn't trade this car for ANYTHING on the market today!

Economical Basic Transportation — I bought this car new and have put 110,000+ miles on it. It has been a very reliable and economical car. Gets over 25 mpg around town and 30+ mpg highway. It is plenty comfortable for basic transportation. Would consider purchasing another...when this one wears out..

Looks Great And Has Some Zipp ! — The only real problem that I have with this car is the lack of factory or aftermarket upgrades. Would love to put more performance upgrades on the car . Also would like some optional exterior items such as badges, etc. Other then that I love the car and its a pleasure to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Good Car — Overall I really like this car. It is very good on gas and has good space inside for the family. It has a stylish look inside. The handling on the car is great. Very easy to make the turns. I know that I can rely on this car to get me to point A.
