    The new Malibu does look great. I like the scaled-down Lucerne profile. However the interior looks horrible in rental car gray. The Malibu really needs the contrasting two-tone interiors to look nice. Two-tone gray doesn't cut it...

    Reminds me of a lucerne. Pretty nice.

    When is the official sale date of this? Isn't it sometime in October? I think GM starts advertising its cars too early. The Accord will be on sale by mid septmeber, and Honda hasn't released any pictures or information.

    I want to like this car, but i cant get past the front and rear. I am sure quality wise its great, but the front and rear just isnt for me.

    I don't know what to say about this...the photos speak for themselves and its a subjective thing, I guess.

    Let it stand at - If I had bought a 2007 Impala LT with the flex fuel 3500, flip & fold rear seating, bench seat and Imperial Blue paint to replace my Bonneville (as I almost did) instead of waiting for the 2008 Malibu, I wouldn't have regretted it after these photos.

    I know a lot of guys here rabidly want to like this car, so I'll just kick back and read from here on out. No need to nitpick what's already done. Besides, someone's going to say "It's just a stopgap!" anyway.

    And it's built in Kansas. It doesn't get any better than this! Well, if it had a manual transmission, it would be better. But I will take it, an LTZ, please.

    I can't stand this color. It makes the interior look just as cheap and old as the current model.

    NICE...I like the 2-tone gray (no offense to all who think ebery interior should look like Microsoft hotdog stand setting)(actually, you guys need to get a clue) With the reviews the new Saturns have been getting, this has a lot of potential for being a magazine darling. It has a nice balance and looks good at all trim levels.

    I guess I'm not the target demo for this car, doesn't really excite me. Maybe it'll look better on the road like many cars do.

    That rear design kills the car.

    It looks sort of like the VW Passat's... but just not good at all.
