I just came off a lease of a '09 Merc Milan L4 My my new Malibu is so much better in every catagory
Exterior design, the dash is very well designed and laid out. The comfort of the front seats are very comfortable and supportive, the 4 cyl engine well you cant hardly tell if its running. With less than 500 miles I got 30 mph combines city & hwy. Really like the bluetooth and onstar feature The car handles and rides like a much more expensive car - very impressed so far. I had a '03 LS - there is no comparision - GM did their homework!
Rear seat room, and rear comfort with no armrest is dissapointing!
The truck release button on the front door should be lit up at night
