#545 of 775 2009 Malibu price
Sep 18, 2008 (4:29 pm)
Purchased 2009 Malibu LTZ, 4 cylinder, 6 speed, dark gray metallic with no sun roof.
GM employee pricing of $24608.30. Dealer honored $300 coupon from website.
for a cost of $24308.30. Documentation fee was $45. Registration $139, inspection $10, tire recycling $12.50. That's it. It was as simple a deal as possible. No trade in, no finance and F & I was not pushy. Deal took about one hour. They also gave me 6 free oil changes. NYC sales tax 8.375 came to $2035
Dealer: Meyer Chevrolet in Queens NY

In my area of Queens, Middle Village, there was a 2009 Malibu LTZ sitting on four cinder blocks, the four 18 inch tires stolen.
I'm picking up my Malibu on Wednesday. My question: What devices can I buy to minimize the treat of theft? New York is notorious for car thieves.

locking lugs are for honest folks..they can be broken off and rims stolen....locks are to keep the honest folks out IMHO....lo jack seems to be a success in recovering a vehicle...but since its passive in nature.....its not a defense from keeping it from theft.....most people ignore horns and flashing lights these days....a passive system that disables the engine is the best one......I beleive GM employs a passive system already in there keys and ignitiion

I read somewhere if you use wheel locks, instead of one on each wheel, use five. It might get you a little more protection. What do you think?

Then you'll need a different key for each wheel.. seems like a pain..
What kind of wheels are you putting on a Malibu? 32 years of car ownership... never lost a wheel..

May be buying a 09' Malibu LTZ. With moonroof. Anyone know what I can expect to pay? So far they said Approx $3300 off of sticker of approx $30,800
I am a little nervous with what is going on but, I just like the look of the car it is very nice. I have always owned, Mini, Honda, or Toyota my whole life. can anyone say anything about their experience with this car? Is it really as good as they say online. I drove it and it felt nice to me.

I don't have an LTZ, but I love mine , and it is only a 4 cylinder. Like you I loved the look of it at first. I remember looking at a Car and Driver comparison between the Malibu, Altima,Accord and Camry . The malibu just looked so much more different and better than the others I was sold.
After driving it I realized that GM got their act together on this one. After 4k miles I am still loving it, it is just so much fin to drive.

I can get an 09 Malibu LT1 w/sunroof and power convenience package
in NY for 22000 plus cost of plates. I think this is a very good deal,
Should I take it
