We've had our Malibu for two months now and we're very pleased with the fuel economy. We looked at hybrids but decided that we'd rather pay less upfront and get better long term durability (who knows how long a hybrid battery will last). We've gone on a few long trips too and it's very comfy. XM satellite radio was the only thing we didn't want, but we're finding that it's one of the best options too. This car isn't killing our pocket book and we're very pleased with it's performance. The V6 is much peppier than the V6 Honda we got rid of.
