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

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

Definitely a great car. Handles very well on sharp turns. Has less power than you would imagine. the car is very cramped in the back seats. Trunk space is limited. Wouldnt make the best family car.

Back Seats Ranked 2008 Hyundai Sonata V6 GLS FWD better.
"The back seats in the Hyundai are very wide and leave plenty of space for more storage or an extra person."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2008 Hyundai Sonata V6 GLS FWD better.
"The Hyundai can fit 5 tires in the trunk including the spare tire. Also, if you put the seats down, an extra bicycle will fit in with ease."
