Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I love that the Malibu allowed me to continue my buying of cars from an American company. My 08 Chevy was made in Mexico - was a great, reliable ride but it warms my heart when I open my door and see the sticker where it was built.

I can think of nothing better to do than buy an American product, made in America, from an American company. I'm glad to own this car.

I have no problem with other marques, makes, country of origin but the last couple years it's been imperative to look at American cars when buying. There as good at the very best and in many cases better than equivalent level imports.

And a far greater value. Buy GM stock now!!

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I would buy a foreign car if any of them appealed to me in looks. I haven't really ever seen one that I wanted. They all seem to look like they have no character to me.
I admit the interior is nice in my step daughter's 09 Accord (although the radio could use less than 200 buttons) but the exterior styling is just not my taste.

I refer to Camry vehicles always as "Soulless Camry".

I've offended a couple friends whom I didn't realize owned them... But that proves my point. They're invisible!!

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I doubt the design is changing very much. One picture was a rendering, meaning someone whith rendering software came up with their design(kinda like photoshop) GM wouldn't make two different class cars have the exact same front end.That just doesnt seem smart. The other picture is hard for me to believe as well. Why would gm let an un proportioned diagram get out to the public, let alone, what architect would have a drawing that is so obviously incorrect? I hope gm doesn't have sub par architects.

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I think its too soon to update the design. Chevy needs to give the '14 malibu at least two model years so that the current new design could catch on. If that front end graft ends up as a reality then IMO they may do more harm to the malibu than good.

I am glad that chevy is responding to some of the criticism of the malibu, as opposed to just running it through a typical production run. Its hard for lightning to strike twice.

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I just sat in a 2013 1LT at the auto show. It is a much better looking car inside and out compared to my 2012 1LT . Plus it seems to have more features.
All they really need to do is give it an inch more backseat legroom....and lower the price

I have to agree with the above.
