Anyone have any idea what the weight distribution is like for the 2009 (and likely also the 2008) 3.6l Malibu? I'm curious as to how much is up front vs. in the back. That is something that luxury cars do really well, and I wonder if this is yet another, but unmentioned, area that the Malibu exceeds it's expectations.

It does... thanks. I assume the 2009 is identical, or nearly so. Not quite the nearly 50/50 balance of a German car, but it's the same or slightly better than all of the competitors in it's class, including the imports. That paird with the similar and often better skidpad, slalom, acceleration and braking tests makes this the winner yet again.
