I own this vehicle and I am amazed by how much get up and go this thing has! I have the 3.6L V6 DOHC. The interior is as good as it gets for the price you pay for the car. Many think it feels cheap but let be real people, Its not a BMW or a Mercedes Benz... Its a Chevy Malibu. It has very comfortable seating and plenty of leg room for a midsize sedan. I have driven Impalas, Altimas, and yes even a BMW, and I would still choose my Malibu over the rest of those strictly on performance, ride comfort, and looks as well. It is a very appealing vehicle, Definitely the LTZ because of the stock wheels it comes with. Very sporty and has plenty of engine power to back it up. Plus the paddle shifters are a neat touch as well. I rate this car very high!
