    Classy But Great For New Drivers! — That I had to get the "new" stuff needed,since it was outdated.New tires, fuel pump, etc. Would definiately upgrade to the new Malibu, but leave for the army HATED that the dealer wanted me to fork out another thousand bucks to fix the key mark that someone else did. LOVE THE CAR! Disllike the dealership.

    Pros: Everything :)

    Cons: The dealer

    The Standard — More to come as I go, right now, absolutely everything that I wanted. Car has automatic everything, including a remote keyless entry. Car has just about the same gas mileage as the lumina thought it gets better mielage on the highway. Car's engine looks to be easy to work on as it is a V-6 3.1L. So far, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable car that will get you to what you need to go.

    Pros: Automatic everything

    Cons: few surface sratches

    It Is A Really Great Car.i Would Recommend This Car To A Friend. — I love my car. Gold Malibu. Tan interior. Drives efficiently. Great on the gas.I would buy another someday. I would love to have a sun roof in this car, but can't have all the possitives, and no negatives thats just life. It has a CD player, AC, electronic seats, tilts, spacious compartments. But no way of plugging in my IPOD. It is fun to drive, and fits my personality. It drives, very well, but when stopping its body frame shifts and squeaks. No it is not the brakes, guys. I have not had to make any repairs, other than minor wear repairs. It is a really great car.I would recommend this car to a friend.

    Pros: I would buy another someday.

    Cons: Not a six seater, only a 5

    .... — this car is a decent car. it has plenty of room if you are taller no matter where you are sitting.Engine has power but the fact that it is a weak design makes you think about beating on it.

    Pros: plenty of room

    Cons: the engine is weak as hell lots of problems with intake gasket leaks

    An American Car With An European Engine — No as refined as its other competitors as the camry or accord, the overall impression is fair for the price. The cabin is quiet enough and the controls are not impressive but modest. The 3.1 engine performance is the strong point in this car. The ergonomics are good.

    Pros: Performance, respetable fuel economy, quiet cabin.

    Cons: some cheap-like materials inside the car, high depretiation.

    Nice, Basic Sedan — Handles wonderfully, with little effort, doesn't feel like 4,000 lbs. Comfortable, modern interior, intuitive controls.

    Pros: Great to drive.

    Cons: Exterior is a little plain.

    Very Reliable, But Not To Comfortable — The most uncomfortable car I have ever owned, but with only one car in the fam, my wife drove it most of the miles, it has been a very reliable car, and the things that broke were covered under the extended warranty. I have put 85K+ on in 4 years, and it has been good on gas with Avg. MPG between 23-29 with mixed driving, and my wife's lead foot.

    Pros: Very reliable and good in the snow.

    Cons: Uncomfortable and uninspiring

    Pros: 44000 miles, spoiler, leather seats.

    Cons: leather seats not heated, no sunroof, no six disc.
