Fair. — I liked the cocoa/cashmere leather seats alot!! The steering wheel is little. The car overall is impressive. Its a clean hybrid. Nice family of 3 vehicle. Fair enough price for overall package. I like it alot its a good deal.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The Seats are comfortable & Nice Looking. The car is blue tooth/Satellite compatible "fun". At night the blue lights on the dash board and radio look Awesomee!! A/C is amazingg. Steering wheel is light and easy to move. Vehicle picks up speed fast.

Cons: Gas guzzler. I have a E85 flex fuel. I use reg unleaded but the vehicle still consumes gas highly. The vehicle is long and carries weight. Kinda pricey though, he radio dash could have been better.

Get A Ford — Underpowered 2 liter in a car rated for a 3.0 or bigger due to the weight an all the gadgets. FF. Bring back FR cars people. ( whats with all the pansys on the roads these days? ) LTZ = Fully loaded with all the upgrades on the Chevy site. However get from dealership an its got A: 2.2liter, B:FF, C: No 32MPG as listed. Long driving times should be in another car or SUV as this one will give you tennis elbow at the least and a really soar butt an back from the way the seats are set up. Also to many blind spots for parking correctly unless ya know how to drift park.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: manual override shifter with no clutch.
Bose premium 12pk stereo with CD an USB port.
18" wheels

Cons: 2.2liter V4 in a car that ways 3500# without driver an or passengers.
false MPG statements
Front engine Front wheel drive with 18" wheels or FF18"

Great Commuter Car — Excellent daily driver, handles well, good acceleration when needed even with 4 cylinder, well put together, comfy, but the Firestone OEM tires squeal a lot like its a ZR1 Vette. It is fun to drive and though sizable, doesn't feel like it. I should had the visability is great, very few blind spots.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage (4 cyl), front seat comfort, stylish, quiet interior.

Cons: OEM tires.

2011 Maliu Lt2 — I look the way the car looks and handles great. The back seat is a little small. The gas milage is ok. There is a bad blind spot when you back up. I live in a very small town and have already seen 2 malibus with dents in their rear bumpers and have already warned my hubby that it will prob happen to me to

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The looks

Cons: No trade in value
