I purchased a 2007 Malibu LT 2T in September 2006.Ordered the car made for me, no purchase off a car lot.
This car has so far been mechanically perfect, with 4000 miles on it. It is amazingly peppy, 3.5 with VVT. Fuel economy has been very good, about 32 mpg on highway. I find it comfortable and the ride very good. At my age - 78 - the electric power steering is great. I also like the interior room, and the big trunk space.
I recommend purchasing cars by ordering them made to your specifications.

I just purchased an 06 LS (with V6)?? Yes, it has a V6, but I haven't found another like it. This was a rental or fleet vehicle, I'm assuming. Got it for 12,500, with 27K on it. Great shape, VERY clean - runs great, quiet and handles great too. Getting about 25mpg in town. Haven't done any highway yet, maybe this weekend. Love it so far.

I ordered a new malibu and got it Friday, 5/2/08. Didn't get home before it died on the road. Is there a three day right to resend on new cars? They have it at the shop for over 4 hours now and I haven't heard a thing from the dealership. My 3 days is up at 5:00pm today. Want do you all think I should do?

What was the nature of the problem? Were there any warning signs? Did you drive in a puddle or did you run out of gas?

Full tank of gas, it just jumped twice and motor shut off. This was when my husband drove it home. So when I got home I could not get past my neighbors house before it shut down again.

they even ran an Onstar report to see if it showed anything, nothing. They came and picked it up and it died on them too and sputted all the way. They thought maybe bad gas but 2 more cars were filled the same time, no problem.
