It doesn't look too bad so I think I'll leave it on there. Didn't see any upcharge on the invoice for it so I wasn't sure where it came from. The car was new to another dealer who had gone out of business so maybe they did it.Exactly...
My ex '09 2LT never had anything, but after I traded it in for my G8, the dealer had their guy come & put a thin 2-line black stripe on the car to dress it up. It's a dealer thing, something people do on their own, etc. Such things are never, ever factory
I see you traded for a G8. I did the opposite, traded my '08 G8GT for the Malibu. Wife drives it most and she didn't like it in the winter. It had too many things about it that made it feel too much like a foreign car that I grew not to appreciate like the key fob, the window control placement, the lack of delayed door locking, the radio and instrumentation. It had no spare tire, the brakes squeaked and the windshield wipers didn't work very well. But it sure was a performance car and was a great car for that. Very comfortable on long trips and went like stink!
I never, ever thought I'd own a 4 cyl car and I hate 4 doors but the Malibu LTZ is a very nice vehicle. With the 6 speed trans the performance is quite surprising. Gets about 33 mpg on a trip, 30 overall, very comfortable and has a great looking interior. 15K on it with no problems. Best of all the wife likes it.
