Pros: smooth driving
Cons: the trunkI can't understand why everything is made well on the 2009 Malibu except for the trunk. I hate the opening. It is very hard to maniver putting things in like suitcases etc. It is chopped off. I didn't realize that when I bought it. They need to change that. I haven't checked the 2010 trunk. Otherwise I like the interior design and the way it drives.
