Yes, on the radio.

As for the Malibu and the pedals, we've been wondering that for a while after the info was released a bit ago...BUT, I'm still waiting to see if it's just been left out and/or renamed/repackaged somewhere. We'll see. Same with the side indicators, which I'm pretty sure were just renamed.

It's called a black tie radio. But whatever it's called, I think it's cumbersome to operate, lacks features my ugly 2005 G6 radio had (CD info readability/display, CD track elapsed time display) and is still a rectangular brick poorly integrated into almost every product it has found a home.
