I've seen quite a few in the Chicago area. Actually, the reason I ended up buying one is from seeing them on the road. Had no idea they had redesigned them for 2013 and loved the way it looked.

I saw one in the Michigan upper peninsula town of Munising in mid-September. Couldn't believe my eyes. Other than the one in my garage, I've not seen another since. I live in a small mid-Michigan town so that might have a lot to do with it. People don't know what they are missing.

Yep, that's why I'm always saying on here (and cp-the-nerd gets tired of hearing ) that you shouldn't just go by what some magazine's opinion is. Unless you get out there and check it out for yourself you don't know what you may be missing.

It was blue and I believe it was an LS model as it didn't say anything but "Malibu" on the back, no Eco badge, no LTZ tailights and no tailpipes out the back (unless someone removed the Eco badge like someone else here said they were going to do).

How often does anyone else see the 13 malibu out on the road?
Saw one last Sat. Have had mine for about 3 months. Great car so far. Had first oil change a few days ago. Traded in a 2011 Cruze because of some issues.

I had one as a rental last week in Tampa. I still much prefer the exterior shape and design of the Gen. 7 Malibu. I will say that the interior is nicer in the Gen. 8, but some things I don't like. Some of the switches have a real cheap, cheesy feel to them. The dash light dimmer and steering wheel radio controls to name a couple. I also don't care for the touch screen radio/climate control set up. Much too distracting trying to use it, compared to what is in my '11.
All in all, a very nice car. Just not sure I would trade my gen. 7 for one.

I have been seeing all kinds of new Malibu's where I reside. It seems like before I got mine I only saw a few now I see them quite often.

Just saw my third Malibu out on the streets (besides ours). It was a silver non LTZ model passing by us on the opposite side of the road. 3 in almost a year, wow.
