    I drove this before I decided I wanted a fusion instead. This car is nice and very similar to the fusion but it didnt handle as well in my opinion.

    Worst Car Ever I Owned In Years — the appearance is very nice with its 18" wheels. build quality is horrible, inside all plastic with everything clipped together. I wouldn't recommend this car to my worst enemy. it is always breaking down and no one can figure out why. performance when it does run is fine with great fuel economy.

    Pros: very nice looking car

    Cons: always breaking down,  gets us stuck on highways not reliable at all.

    Economical Style — I like everything about this LTZ Malibu. Style, efficiency, power, speed, and mobility. This car is everything a conservative buyer could hope for in a vehicle. The sound system, and NorthStar Navigation system are the cherries on the top. Who could ask for more?

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort, affordable, and reliable

    Cons: Interior noise on certain road types with cheap tires. I bought a set of Michelins to solve that problem

    Great Styling Mixed With Practicality Make This A Perfect Family Car — This vehichle like i mentioned in my pros an cons, this is a perfect family car, for someone who hauls alot of people around or just wants a good point A to B car. If you are looking for performance or top notch handling or even amazing gas mileage, look else ware.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car is amazing for families, drives smooth, little to no road noise, comfortable, car to take on long trips, great for hauling people or things

    Cons: gas mileage could b better, hardly any power, heavy, not a car for someone who is by themselves, or someone looking for performance

    Great Job For My First Ever Own American Car — The car is a good one to own as it doesn't cost much to maintain it. When you do need power, you can switch it to semi-manual and have some serious fun. Overall it is a nice car but I just want to get the 2013 now :-)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: MPG is great for a car of that size and the car never once broke down on me like my other cars. Really cheap to maintain as well

    Cons: Its a 4 cyl

    Chevrolet Malibu With Loads Of Nice Features! — I am very impressed with the Chevrolet Malibu. They did a great job "thinking" about every feature this vehicle has to offer. Just to name a few of the great features, namely, bluetooth, heated front seats, remote start, Audio System Memory Card Slot, Mp3 Player, fog lights, and many more!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is an excellent commuter car, or even great for a high school or college student.  It has great gas mileage, and has a lot of extra features to make it a sharp looking vehicle.

    Cons: None.

    Mali Mali Malibu :) — The 3.6 V6 Engine gives great performance. The car accelerates and brakes smoothly. Takes curves nice and smooth. Gas mileage is okay. Could be better. But its not horrible. It is very fun to drive especially during the summertime when its perfect to open the sunroof(which slides on top of the car for a more sporty look instead of inside of the roof like most cars).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love the car. Comfortable, handles great, runs smooth.

    Cons: Cup Holders SUCK!! The ones in the front and back. Horrible. Cant fit two large cups in them at the same time.
