    Chevrolet Has Finally Done It Right And Built A Car Which Anyone Can Afford, And Its Quality! — I just bought a Certified Pre-Owned 2008 Chevrolet Malibu LT2. My Mother owns a 2008 LTZ and loves it, I can understand why. It is smooth, quiet, luxurious for the price, roomy and good gas mileage. Mine came with a 4 cyl. Engine, which suprised me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Smooth, quiet, roomy, luxurious

    Cons: limited turn radius

    Malibu 2008 Ls — appearance inside out is the best and the way it handles is very smooth. The interior quality is very good for the price the car was 19,000 but with taxes and few extras came out to 24,000 the car is very responsive but it has a restricted top speed of 115mph that sucks the traction control is very resposive but you cant feel a big difference when its off so w.e. still I would recomend this car I love the interior and ONSTAR ofcoutse

    Pros: rides good and looks good

    Cons: had troble with transmision a few times

    08 Malibu — Fun car to drive. GREAT VALUE! The car has some neat features that you would not expect. Great gas mileage, large trunk. I think Chevy did their homework on this car. Could have a bit more get up and go, but it is ok.

    Pros: Looks, handling, gadgets

    Cons: acceleration

    Mom's Car — Performance is somewhat listless, but 0-100kmh is about 7.9 seconds. The build on it is really quite solid and nothing like many older Chevs before it. Build, schmuild, it looks like a budget BMW on steriods! Yet, it's really cheap to drive, if not fun, but it's an awesome car!

    Pros: Really sweet looking, luxurious!

    Cons: 4-cylinder engine, low ground clearance

    A Nice Surprise From Gm...is It Too Late? — Before this car came along, I knew what to expect from most of the American car makers. Lots of power, very cheap interiors, inconsistent build quality and very conventional. This is the first time I actually think GM has made a very good car, its not great as in an epic sort of way but this was long overdue...30+ years in fact. To drive its satisfactory, not all too exciting but not refined to the point that driving got boring. The 4-cylinder engine is not all that quick but doesn't feel as slow as an Avenger or Fusion. The interior is where GM really put its attention, it seemed someone at GM realized we spend more time inside than looking at the outside. There is plastic, but in a Toyota-like style managed to make it integrate very well with the interior design. The chrome pieces are very nicely done. The dash is purely electronic so it seems invisible until its on while GM used some nice colours to go with it. Its these small touches I liked a lot, the auto tranny's shifter for instance has little lights that turn once you set the gear lever where you want it. Big difference from the Impala which relied on the dash to tell you, GM designing that car didn't even have the decency to label P, R, N, D, etc. As for assembly, this is one of the few times where most of the cars are assembled quite well and quite consistently. Still not as nice as Lexus in Japan, Mercedes or Audi but far more competitive with Toyota. To buy, this is a rarity but its not cheap. It costs less than the Fusion and Sebring but it also is more expensive than the Altima. This time your actually buying some quality instead of getting ripped off. Its decent with fuel, never seemed to be an issue. On the looks, this car has a pretty boring front end. The side profile is probably the best part since it sports chrome in the right places something few do at this price range. The rear is where I don't really like it, the tail lights don't look good and don't suit the car. This is probably the only GM product I think is worth recommending. Those who are disillusioned with GM in the past but willing to try once more should take a look at this car. I hope this car sets the standard for GM, they all have to be as good or better than this. Anything less is going back to the bad GM cars that call for the company to collapse.

    Pros: Great interior, build pretty well, one of GM's best cars in a long time

    Cons: 4-cylinder engine is a bit slow, styling issues, not as cheap as it used to be
