Default Finally saw another 13 Malibu in the wild

Went to get some breakfast from Hardee's this morning and finally saw another 13 Malibu out in the wild away from the dealer's lot.
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?

Well either that or someone else got a hold of the second test one in this area (I got the first one obviously) and took it for a joy ride.

Once in awhile I see one or two on the road. I've had three instances where I've seen one.

Never seen one in my city. I was the first one in my city and the 12th one when I traded it in for the LTZ, 8 months later. I never saw number 2-11 on the road.

@nutcrunch, I see the 2013 models two or three times a week, but they’re the same ones that must live around the route I take to come to work and go home. Lol

I’m really surprised I don’t see more of them.

Actually, I've seen quite a few of them out & about around my area - at least a half dozen or more. Smaller-sized metro area in the central Midwest. Some co-workers even had one as a rental from the nearby airport last week.

And that's not counting the almost-sightings as I've came up on the newer Camero from behind a couple times...
