Just had my Malibu 2 weeks. So far I really like it. I had to bring it back to the dealer for a steering rack. Hope that fixes the noise. We took a 200 mile road trip and I got 36.8 miles per gallon. Back and forth to work (about 70% highway) I get about 31. I'm fairly pleased with that. I think the onboard computer is right on. What people don't realize is that you have to check the Department of Weights & Measures rating on the pump when you get gas. ou don't always get a gallon for a gallon. The closer it is to 12, the more accurate. I always try to fill up at stations that are rated at a 10 12. I find that the car's MPG computer seems to be really close then.
6 airbags & remote start! I know I'll love that once winter hits. I traded my minivan for this car. I lost money in the deal, but will more than make up for it in the gas savings.
Seat cover fabric - gets dirty way too easily. Could spruce up the front end a bit, but I believe they've done that on the '08's.
