The redesigned 2008 Chevrolet Malibu is offered in three trim levels, LS, LT and LTZ, powered by either a 169-horsepower 2.4-liter Ecotec DOHC four-cylinder engine or a 252-horsepower 3.6-liter DOHC V6 with variable valve timing. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with the V6 and will be available later in the model year with the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder on the LTZ. Side-curtain airbags and front seat-mounted thorax protection air bags are standard. A gasoline-electric hybrid Malibu will be available in the fourth quarter of 2007, powered by a single-mode hybrid system similar to the current Saturn Vue Green Line Hybrid which saves gasoline by shutting off the engine when stopped.

Pros: Incredible power and handling, very quiet and smooth, very comfortable seats, lots of interior room, cool displays, remote start, good stereo, steering wheel paddle shifters
Cons: No Bluetooth, clunky front suspension, bumper has to be removed to change headlights, trunk not that big
Overall review: Bought this car as a GM Optimum used car. It feels like a sports sedan, but is very comfortable. I drove a 4 cyl version last year, which I thought was underpowered, but this V6 version really flies, and it isn't too bad on gas either. I've had a few minor problems with it, but the dealer is willing to work with me on them. I love driving this car. It has tons of power, it it quiet, and I've never found seats more comfortable than the ones in this car. The paddle shifters are pretty cool. Not too many cars this cheap have them. I wanted a fast car that didn't gulp fuel, looks like I found one!!! Would highly recommend it. The 4 cyl model would be good for anybody who doesn't need the speed, but wants the best gas mileage.
