My Malibu has been quite nice thus far. It has lots of standard features and few optional features. Saddens me that there is not much difference from the base model and the LS model. I have the LS and that only things I have that the base model done have is the V6 engine (the 4cyc engine puts out the same amount of horse power as the V6 so there is not much difference) I got the 6 way power driver seat, CD player, a and wheels.

Chevrolet needs to strive a bit harder to set the base model and the LS model apart
