    2009 Malibu LS

    Pros: Remote start

    Cons: Trunk clearance

    Good family car with room for 5. Good gas mileage to get around town. Easy to drive and park. Only complaint is the trunk opening. Not very wide and makes putting in large objects difficult.

    2009 Chevrolet Malibu

    Very nice car

    Pros: V6 motor

    Cons: Rear view mirrors

    This may very well be the best car overall that I have ever owned. Fit and finish is outstanding. I'm amazed at how quiet the ride is at interstate speeds. It's fun to drive, handles well, has great performance and mileage considering the V6. The ambient lighting at night is unique and wish it had more in the rear passenger area. The 6 speed transmission takes some getting used to when driving the hills and curves in our area. It lugs down too much in drive mode, but I quickly got used to using the manual mode with shift paddles when driving in those areas. Only dislike is the rear view mirrors are too small and field of view in backing up is very limited.

    My favorite so far

    Pros: The way it rides.

    Cons: trunk space

    I like GM products. They are dependable and they last a long time. I went away from GM in 2006.....that was a mistake .....but I am back now and loving it.

    2009 Chevrolet Malibu

    Exceptional American Car

    Pros: V-6 performance.

    Cons: Rear view mirrors.

    Have owned vehicle a few months and not yet taken long trip. Outside rear view mirrors too small, difficult to adjust for traffic use while also seeing ground area in backing up. Had one tire out of round and dealer took care of it promptly. Exceptionally quiet, comfortable car on the road. V6 performance and handling is wonderful. Great looking styling. Feels like it may be the most practical car overall that I've ever owned.
