I was hesitating between a Mazda3, a Sonata and a Jetta. I finally choose the Malibu because of the price and the rating which was not so bad. After almost two months of ownership, and a trip of 2400 km (1500 mi.), I find this car very pleasant. Good seating position for a six footer, very good fuel economy, good acceleration and a feel of solidity. I don't regret my old car (1993 Mercury Grand Marquis) and hope that this Malibu will be of good service.
Good space inside a medium size car. I like the information provided by the computer, the sound of the radio, the gas mileage and the acceleration provided by the six cylinder.
Better daytime readability of the information center. Try to give a better sound to the engine which roar like a truck on acceleration.
