ReviewI considered this car and the '05 Camry LE. GM's employee pricing promotion and the Malibu's excellent ride & handling balance ended up being the deciding factors because the two cars were a wash in areas like assembly quality, interior comfort, materials quality, quietness, and styling. The Camry has a slight edge in trunk room and rear seat legroom, but not enough of one to justify the price difference. Overall, the Malibu is a comfortable, fun to drive sedan with materials and assembly quality equal to that of the Camry. Also, so far (with 2600 miles on the odometer), it has been trouble- free. If you're shopping the Camry, shop the Malibu, too. It might surprise you---it did me.
Best FeaturesDriver information center, remote start, lighted power window & door lock switches, lighted cruise control switches on the steering wheel, standard 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, front seat side airbags, side head curtain airbags, plentiful interior storage space, excellent ride & handling balance
Worst FeaturesEnough rear seat legroom to comfortably accomodate people over 6 feet tall whenever tall people are in the front seats
