Hi, I also have an '09 Malibu LT which has had some quality issues so we're considering trading it in before something falls off... Did you have any issues with yours? Our tranny hesitates for 3-4 secs at times, cargo net holder comes right off, tail light housing comes loose due to cheap plastic screws, battery cable caught on fire. So far these have been my "only" issues. So we considering the Sonata, I would love the turbo, but someone else may not be into the extra $. How does it compare to the Malibu in terms of its ride and build quality? I love the ride on the Malibu, just sad about the extra cheap plastics that keep coming off the damn car! We'll be looking at both the Optima and Sonata. Thanks for your input.Report it
