    Looks fantastic. How long have you had it? Did the lack of a V-6 in the next gen sway you?

    I think it was more of the insane deal he got on it.


    Really like it. Ours was that color as well. Even though it was black it still looked pretty good when dirty. We had the cocoa/cashmere interior though. I really wish we wouldnt of got rid of that car but oh well.

    Twins? Like Aaahnold and Danny?

    Wow, what a POS!!! Why didn't you get a 200? Or a Camery?

    JUST KIDDING! Nice looking wheels, is it imported from Motown? Got Injun and trunk pitchers??

    Reminds me, I need to get out and make some daylight pitchers of the 200.

    Nice car. Why not lay some scratch on the driveway, just as a photo-op of course!

    Ours was the 2.4 LTZ and an 08. I didnt realize yours was cocoa/cashmere on the interior. It seems like ours was a tad more vibrant for some reason. Could be camera settings.

    Are they still shipping them with the crappy Goodyear RSAs on them?

    Hmmm... I guess I forgot engine and trunk pitchers!

    Thanks for the comment Neanderthal!

    It's imported from Kansas, by the way!

    Hmmm... that's interesting with the interior.

    They still are shipped with RS-A's. I hate those POS BadYear tires!

    Re: Envoy4Life's Malibu!

    Ours had a few problems as well. We actually broke the parking brake mounting tab about 3 months into ownership. The trunk seal was always coming off the driver side top turn but I fixed it with a dab of super glue.

    Overall, we put 20k miles on it in just over a year and it was a good car. I honestly wouldnt mind picking up an 09 in the next few years. The reason for an 09 is that they fixed the most damn annoying thing about the car, the hip destroyer, as I call it.

    Get a 2011 if you were to snag a Malibu in the future. I bet you can get a good deal on one when the 2013 Malibu comes out.
