Yep, we have a 2010 Malibu LS.
Base model. Only options are body-side moldings and spare tire.
Mocha Steel Metallic with the Cocoa/Cashmere interior.
I'm very surprised at how much I like this car!
It's quiet, rides smooth, handles good and gets amazing gas mileage.
If you want a little extra power, get the V6.
I've heard that the V6 still gets over 30MPG on the highway, but city MPG is in the high-teens.
Ours is a 4-cylinder with the 4-speed auto.
EPA rating 22MPG city / 30MPG highway.
Real results: 21MPG city / 34MPG highway.
(Our city driving is low-speed 1 mile trips, so our MPG suffers from that)
The 6-speed auto (standard on LT/LTZ) gets a 23MPG city / 33MPG highway rating, so I'd imagine it would be even better than the great mileage we get with ours.
It's a well-built solid car, and we really love it.
You can't go wrong! Highly recommended!
I think my favorite color combo on the Malibu is Taupe Gray Metallic with the Titanium interior.
