Pros

The trunk space is amazing!!! And you can get a full size spare in there. Acceleration are braking are smooth as silk and it handles like a dream. I am a self-proclaimed speed demon but she can take whatever I dish out...including a curve at 95 mph. Great leg room inside...a 6'2 man can ride quite comfortably.

Cons

The only downside is that it didn't come with OnStar.

I Love This Car!!!! — This was not the vehicle I went to buy, but I fell in love with it. Overall, I am completely happy with it and Chevy as a whole. This is my first Chevy and I'm loving it!!!

Does What I Need It To Do! — This has been a very reliable car. Has plenty of power for most situations. Although the 2004-2007 Malibu was not a very attractive vehicle, this model escapes that garden variety look. The wheels, different front and rear fascia's and interior help out. Also don't see too many other SS Sedans. The only Chev car with worse fuel economy is the Vette.

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!
