"I bought my wife a brand new 2009 Malibu. I must admit it's one of the best looking cars around. The car looks like a Benz or BMW. Overall I like this car, its dependable and runs very well. It's good on gas. The only bad thing is I'm 6'3'' tall weigh 205 and the steering wheel doesn't adjust upward enough for me to slide my knees under it. With the seats pushed all the way back and reclined all the way back I can still drive the car with my knees. Other then that I really have enjoyed this car. Also the engine strains when you drive over 60 mph other then that I would recommend this car to anyone who ask."
Pros: "easy handling and comfortable at a good price"
Cons: "fog lights only on the LTZ model"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I purchased this car for the wife as a temporary vehicle and would give it to one of the kids once she decided on a SUV or another truck she didn't like mid sized cars after having a car accident. She fell in love with it and is very reliable and good on gas. In 94,000 miles very little has been needed to be done other than the usual services and set of tires. Now reaching 100k miles and body style change it's time to replace it but, will continue on with one of the kids as the new owner.."
"This is a good little car - have had no mechanical problems at all. Does what is should, except fuel economy is less than I thought it should be. Getting about 25 to 26 mpg on nearly all highway miles. I am mature and drive for economy, so I would have thought the car would do about 29 - 30 mpg."
