Bob Lutz and the 2008 Malibu

http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/archives...tz_and_th.html

It's a video there, but I'll just embed it here:



The new Malibu is a fantastic car, and it's just what GM needs right now.

Wow, that's a sharp looking car. If I didn't have my heart set on the Camaro, I might grab one of those, just too bad it doesn't come with a v-8.

If they had a malibu SS with the DI V6 in it...I would have a hard decision to make. FWD or not.

The interior is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen come out of Chevrolet, it's insane.


Edit: Hey, atleast GM admits that they used to suck on interiors. Even though I don't mind the interior in my S-10...it's just a bit bland.

I could see that happening, and that would be awesome.
300hp Malibu SS FTW.

It looks much better than the old design.

Bob didn't seem to be 'smooth' in his remarks about the Bu. He often appears to be very polished.

I really think they should use a boring-looking beige Camry in the "soon there will be a car you can't ignore" commericals.

I hate those commercials because the car IS a Malibu.
