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

Its A Practical, Good Looking Car, Thats Fun To Drive. — Fuel economy is great, CarGurus is wrong on this one. I get 35+ on the highway with the 4cyl. This is one of the best cars I've owned. The interior is Quite stylish and practical. The back seats is plenty big for tall adults. The trunk is quite spacious (dont let people tell you the opening is too small, because its not that bad)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fuel Economy, Quietness, Features

Cons: Electronic Steering

Great Car For The Money And Its Not An Import. — This car is fun to drive. I would highly recommend the V6 as opposed to the V4. The paddle shifters are fun to snap up and down the gears as well. The handling has been stellar since I increased the psi in the tires from 30 psi(which is came with) to 44 psi. Also to note you are able to turn off the traction control for even more fun with this car. I has room enough for kids or adults in the back seat and the trunk is spacious. The only complaint I have thus far is my wife and I both drive the car and it doesn't have a setting to adjust profile for multiple drivers for seat position and mirrors. The Bluetooth phone option is also very clear and convenient. I also got the windows tinted which greatly improves the look of the car. I think it handles better than the Camry with the same acceleration.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Snappy and Responsive

Cons: Unable to set seat and mirror profiles for multiple drivers

The Malibu — When my Tribute was wrecked I had this for a week for a rental car thanks to Progressive Insurance. I really liked it, the blue cabin light were a really neat touch especially at night. Overall the car was great to drive, but was hard to get in and out of since I am pretty tall.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Outer Appearance, Blue cabin lights, MPG ok

Cons: The lowness of the car

2009 Malibu Lt2 Is A Great Choice. — Last 2 cars I owned were a Toyota Camry and a Honda Accord. I compared the Malibu to both and chose it for a variety of reasons (looks, price, performance, price and gas mileage. The interior is beautiful! it truly has a sporty/upscale look of more expensive sport sedans. I never expected to buy a Chevy but took a look after many of the reviews I had seen online. This car way exceeds my expectations. Just returned from 1000 mile road trip and did as good as 34mpg. The 4 cyclinder suprised me with it's power and quietness and makes it a joy to drive. Big Kudos on wind noise as I have never experienced a better vehicle at reducing wind noise. GM has made huge strides with the Malibu. I love it inside and out and would highly recommend it.

Pros: Looks, especially interior, features, mpg is great!

Cons: none I can think of.

Move Over Toyota, And Honda — My new 2009 Malibu LTZ is a joy to look at both inside and out. Beautifully designed and appointed. It has all the bells and whistles. From a performance standpoint it is smooth, solid, and quiet. The six speed transmission gives this car a lot of pep. You can feel and smell (yes smell) the quality of this car. GM and the Chevy engineers appear to have gotten dead serious about making the Malibu a very competative high quality mid size package. This car is the real deal. Most of my driving has been city with a few 30-50 mile highway trips. I've been averaging around 29.8 mpg since my March 18th purchase.

Pros: Plenty

Cons: I have not found one yet

Fast 4 Cylinder — I can't imagine how fast the V6 must be, our car has the 4 cylinder matched with the 6-speed automatic transmission and got 33 mpg on the first road trip. It's fast, sharp, and comfortable to drive. the seats have bolsters and hold you as well on a trip as my corvette. We have about 6,000 trouble-free miles.

Pros: styling and mpg

Cons: cupholders too close together

2008 Malibu Ltz — I have the 4cyl. 6 speed. The acceleration, while not stunning, can only be explained as smooth. The brakes instill a lot of confidence. The build quality is fantastic and the ride is nothing short of luxurious. I'm still getting used to the car, so the fun factor is still increasing. It handles much better than I originally realized. The electrically assisted steering was odd at first, but I've found it to be very responsive. It carves out curves with poise for a family sedan.

Pros: phenomally quiet and smooth ride

Cons: single zone climate control
