Post new 2012 Malibu LS

Tomorrow I'm due to get my first Malibu....first Chevy.....first GM car. I've been looking all over central Florida and this one seems to be just what I'm after. Still under factory warranty....clean CarFax. I'll post some pictures. Anyone have a favorite car wax? I've heard Klasse is good and Souveran terrific...but that one's pricey. Stay tuned.

So I got this today...it's a 2012 w/ 14,439 miles. Very pleased. The dealer was about 90 mins away....so I did have a good opty to drive it coming back. Very, very pleased with my first impressions of this car. Couldn't ask for nicer. --JH

Nice car! It's the same year and color and as mine. You might want to be careful when parking it like in your photo. The low front end clearance is one of the few things i don't like about this car. It will "bottom out" when parked this way! Anyone else experience this problem?

Quite a few times until I learned how to judge where the front was in relation to those darned stop blocks!

I've already noticed this. A piece of the front end...the fiberglass that goes all the way down....is torn....exactly from doing what you describe. Some previous driver got too close to a curb and kissed something....it ripped the fiberglass and then I bought it. Now this is not a deal-breaker by any stretch....but something to be aware of as you say... John Houston

I'm glad you love your new car, I got one also 2012 with the almost same amount of miles. Luckily everyone's telling you to be careful! I didn't get a warning! LOL.

You sure went out of your way to get a silver base model, no offense. What kept you from shopping a more optioned '10 or '11 model for the same price?
