It Is A Nice Ride. — So far everything is perfect. It is a blast to drive and the acceleration is wonderful. Braking is good and the handling is aright have not had the chance to really test because of the snow but so far so good.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The performance is great.

Cons: Turning radius could be better.

Chevy Builds A Camry/accord Fighter! — We bought this for my wife to drive to work (over an hour round trip), so we were looking for good mileage, so we went with the 4 cyl. Performance wise, I would have preferred the V6, but the smaller engine is surprisingly peppy and gets an average 25 mpg. Not bad for a midsize 4 door! The styling isn't stunning, but is very nice for it's class, and the interior is one of the best I've seen in an american car! Handing is very good, and the ride is firm but comfortable. Overall, this is a very nice car with better than average projected reliability.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Attractive inside and out! Good balance of performance, ride, and economy.

Cons: Turning radius could be better.

Looks Great, Nice Features! — We love it! Gas mileage is better than we thought it would be. Got a V-6, which has good pick-up to it. Looks great, nice features to it. Love heated seats in winter. Fun to drive!

2009 Malibu Ltz — Great car, wow it's quicker than I ever expected, handles pretty well for a FWD 4dr. No squeaks, build is better than I ever expected to find on a Chevy. Fun car to drive, not a sports car by any means but it is enjoyable, and a nice cruiser to boot!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great cruiser, more fun than it should be in the bends, is this really a Chevy Malibu?

Cons: Malibu stigma, still a mid size 4dr

Love Em Fun To Drive. — Great little car, handles like it is on rails, has the power and acceleration of an 8 but gas mileage of a 6 clynder flashy yet family friendly easy to maintain would reccomoned this one to everyone. Great car for the money.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: love the way it turns heads.

Cons: needs rearview and side mirror dimmers not just rearview.

Its A Nice Car Not A Supreme One — its a nice car, i would say cheaper than most v6 its not as elegant as a camry but about its performance i would say its the same has a nice acceleration you cant expect to compit with an A4 or a charger ro something like that but with some extra money it will sure give you an adrenaline burst

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: cheap v6

Cons: try the mazda 6

Still Like The Overall Ride And Comfort — Love this car, but lacks the acceleration with the 4cyl, city mpg only 20, highway 31. Have only 1700 miles right now, hopefully performance and gas mileage get better. Seems to fall on its face when you accelerate.Back to dealer??

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Classy looking car

Cons: Lacks acceleration and fuel economy
