That cocoa cashmere interior is nice but keeping it clean is going to be a chore. I almost broke down and got that interior as well but the black/brownstone combo stole my heart and works better for me. Let us know how you enjoy all that turbo charged goodness........:-)

My current Malibu eco 2sa has the light cocoa interior and keeping it clean has not been an issue, I had a choice between that and the black/brownstone as both were available.
Should pick her up today, they are going to tint the windows and install the mudflaps. I'm excited. I may miss the in town mileage of my eco though, she's getting 29.8 in the city (manually calculated 25.7) but the performance will make up for it, that and the , Passive Entry Keyless Access, Push Button Keyless Start, High Intensity Discharge Headlamps along with the 2ltr turbo.
Check that passive feature right away. One member said he bought the car partly because the manual said that feature was present but it came without it. Seems there was a mis-print but Chevy stepped up and reprogrammed his BCM to add the feature.

Oh you can gaurentee I will, I had this once before along with the push start in my Cruze and miss it so.
Here is the thread where someone had a problem with the keyless access system. He said the doors did not automatically lock after exiting the vehicle even though the owners manual said it should. He said GM explained that it was a misprint in the owners manual and the car did not have this. He had to have GM write a program to make this option work. http://www.chevymalibuforum.com/foru...hlight=passive
I'd be interested to know know if your doors do or do not automatically lock when exiting the car mzodarg.
