    Malibu 08 — the car is gorgeous but it lacks power on the ecotec even though its pretty responsive sometimes wish I had more power traction controll its there but it dosent really help and I love xm and onstar also the quality of the materials used on the dash makes it look more expensive

    Pros: build quality, onstar and xm

    Cons: performance, traction control

    A For Effort, B+ For Result — i tested this in the large group that i tested when i bought my accord. i think that the car was a pretty good car and it ranked pretty high on my list. it was pretty fun to drive, but not as much as the accord. i was impressed, but the accord (and altima) just appealed more to me. but, hey, consumer reports says the car's reliable so that's a plus.

    Pros: good engine, the car has been reliable, styling.

    Cons: still not as good as some imports.

    2008 Chevrolet Malibu Was Terrible. — This was a rental car that I ended up using when I went on a company training trip. The power was dreadful, the seats were cheaply made, the radio reception was terrible, the ride was uncomfortable, and the overall experience as one that I do not wish to repeat. Performance: Sluggish, brakes were not very responsive, and the handling was sloppy. Build Quality: Poorly built. The only thing that was nice was the sound quality of the radio when it was working. The check tire pressure light was on constantly, even when the pressures were checked multiple times. Appearance: Nothing special. The design causes terrible blind spots while driving. Cost of Ownership: Thankfully I do not own this vehicle, but the average gas mileage that I got for my 225 mile trip was 26.7 MPG. Fun Factor: Not fun.

    Pros: Sound quality of the radio

    Cons: Everything else

    Amazing Car — It's got ALOT of pick up for a 4 cyl. Mine is metalic black. It looks very pimp. Interior is stylish, black cloth seats, and silver accents. Onstar included, as well as XM radio. I love driving this car! You get A LOT for what you pay for the car.

    Pros: lots of pick up, smooth ride, stylish

    Cons: seats are alittle hard, but not uncomfortable.

    Just Got It Friday... — I traded a 2005 TrailBlazer for the Malibu. It drives nice, and It's quiet. The features are amazing for a $20,000 car. Remote start, power pedals, the XM, and OnStar with turn by turn directions are nice. One problem is the interior. There is a piece of molding that juts out right before you get in the seat. I have a nice bruise on my upper thigh due to this thing. I look like an 80 year old trying to get in it.

    Pros: price, quietness, looks

    Cons: wheel covers instead of alloys except for LTZ. interior comfort

    Love It! — My wife has a new Camry and I find the new 2008 Malibu to be a better car in many ways. One would think he or she is driving a much more expensive car. The looks, handling,low noise and price are superb.

    Great Midsize Car. — More features on base model, like heated mirrors, would have made it more competitive with camry, but it's good as-is. Very quiet, quick in the city, solid brakes, nice feeling of switches. Standard radio has good sound. Power seat-height adjustment, auto headlights, computerized oil life monitor, and illuminated interior door handles are nice touches.

    Pros: Nice overall. Beats imports for comfort and style.

    Cons: Can't complain about anything

    08 Malibu Lt — Very nice fuel efficient car. Has nice interior features and drives very nice. Has a large trunk but the opening is not very big. This car has a pretty good build quality. My wife drives it most of the time and she loves how smooth it rides and loves the power sunroof and adjustable foot pedals.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: style and features

    Cons: nothing
