This is my 3rd Malibu '66,'71,'08. People keep asking me "is that the new Malibu?" Chevy's unlimited ad budget must be working. Nothing but compliments on its looks. I had a choice for a lease car between a Pontiac G6 & the Malibu. I never have ordered a car without driving one first much less without seeing it. Boy am I glad I chose the Malibu sight unseen. Since it is a lease vehicle my company speced it out with the 3.5Lt.V6 , 4 Speed auto & hydraulic steering (can't get it this way "retail"). It looks great, rides great & drives great.
The interior has the "dual cockpit" look of a late 50's early 60's Vette I really like it. It has lots of places to store stuff in the console, in the doors & even a compartment on the top center of the dash.(I travel a lot for work & this will be very convenient). It handles and stops very nice.
Change the release lever for the tilt / telescope wheel. I like to drive with the wheel low and towards me. This makes it hard to get in & out of the car without tilting the wheel out of the way & in this car it is a hassle to push the leave down & lift up the wheel & relock the leaver.
