    A belated Christmas gift... a new Malibu!

    Hey everybody, just wanted to share the late Christmas gift I bought myself today. It's a 2009 Malibu LTZ! I kept telling myself I was going to wait for either a Cruze, or the Focus hatchback (really wanted a hatch) or something else. But, I stumbled upon this deal and just couldn't pass it up. It's practically fully loaded, with heated leather, remote start, Bluetooth, USB input, etc. The only thing it doesn't seem to have is a sunroof, but I couldn't really care less.

    It will be a great replacement for my 2005 Ion, which despite the bashings the Ion took on this site (and others), was a great car for me. I'm happy to be back in the Chevy family!

    Nice! The red interior is the best color you can get in the Malibu IMO. Congratulations!

    Congrats! I think the Malibu is beautiful, this one especially.

    I can always identify an LTZ by the front now, and I think it looks just right.

    Appreciate the kind words. It's a great looking car, though of course I'm biased. The interior, coming out of my old Ion, is just... mind-blowing. It's great. My brother has a 2008 Camry and I have a good feeling this interior will blow him away, as well. Can't wait to show it off.

    Excellent deal, I think. I first drove a navy blue 2009 2LT at an actual Chevy dealer. Gray leather interior, sunroof, etc. Nice, but nothing too striking. Another dealership had this car for a bit cheaper (and only a couple thousand more miles). As far as I can tell, this car has every option except the sunroof. As a tech geek, this car also had the USB port, which is great since I stream my music from my iPhone.

    It's a beautiful car, no question. The interior really sold me though.

    Nope, 2.4. While I would love V6 power, the 22/33 gas mileage is very important to me right now. The car has a lot of power for an I4, and definitely feels quicker than the Ion I traded in.
