2008 Highlights

Nothing. This is a quasi-renamed version of the previous-generation Chevy Malibu, aimed mostly at fleet buyers. Trim levels have been subtracted, and the only significant addition is standard four-wheel antilock disc brakes on every model.

Better than the Re-Designed 2008
A big suprise! Why? Because this car has more interior volume and better visibilty than the redesigned 2008 model. The front roof pillars in the 2008 block the driver's view. You also lose head and shoulder room in the new model. Lastly check out highway mpg, 32 in Classic, 30 in new model.
Good solid car
I bought the car new and have put 10000 miles on it in a month. i live in Houston Texas and have not had any problems on the freeways. With ethanol blend gas I have got up to 38 mile to the gallon. The only thing I have had a problem with is the tire pressure sensor failing in one tire and having to go to the dealer for repair. The car has excellent visability and is very comfortable. I have spinal cord damage from a previous wreck and can drive for several hours with no discomfort thanks to the lumbar support and height adjustable driverseat. I was driving Toyota cars and since getting the Malibu i wont go back. I wish I had waited to get the new body type but I am very pleased so far.
way too many problems
This car is fun to drive and Iv heard the LT is better but the LS I have had way too many problems.
