I have a problem with the design of the car. The front turn signal light went out on my car. Therefore, the dealer was reguired to remove the entire front grill of the car to replace the light. The design of the car caused me to pay two hours of labor for a $5.00 lightbulb.

This car has been super. We have owned Camrys and Accords, but this car surpasses both of them by a wide margin. It gets better gas mileage (35-37 mpg at 70 mph), and is actually fun to drive (the Camry we had before was very reliable but a boring car). I recommend this car over a Camry or Accord. We have done nothing in the first year of ownership except to change the oil, and the monthly e-mail reports from GM assure us that there is nothing else to attend to. This is the first defect-free car (in its first full year) that I have ever owned.
A really nice ride

I have a 2008 2LT with everything on it, it is great! Fun to drive, not your normal chevy. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a midsize car. I have a V6, 30 miles to a gallon at 72 MPH.76 you will get 28.

Bought my 2008 Malibu LT last August and just love it. I looked at the 2009 Camry because the dealer had no 2008's. The Camry was an awesome car but the dealer gave me no incentives whatsoever to buy the car. The Chevy dealer was REALLY wanting my business and I got the employee pricing discount. So I bought the Malibu and don't regret doing so. Great design,nice lines and a smooth ride with nice acceleration for a 4Cyl. Don't know how I ever got by without the XM radio.
world class chevy

Milage has never been over 32 and compared to the wifes fusion i would say the fusion has the edge.Her fusion adverages 33-34 on the road and seems overall to be just a bit better vehical.Al though i like the lay out on the malibu.Dont get me wrong its a nice car but not what i expected.
