Author's Note: Sorry for not updating this within the past couple of days. Have been busy with Geneva Motor Show coverage (which you can check out here.) I'm combining days three and four here. Five and six will be the same. - WM

They say its the little things that can make or break a car. In the case of the Malibu Turbo that is very true. There are items in the Malibu that I'm impressed with and some that I'm not. I thought I would highlight two of them.

I'll start with the good thing and it begins with the Malibu Turbo's exterior. As I said in my Malibu Eco review, I really liked the shape of the new Malibu. The new Turbo takes the shape adds some minor touches such as new grille inserts, chrome trim, and optional nineteen-inch wheels really make it stand out even more.

Now for the disappointment and that is the six-speed automatic. While most of the time the automatic is very smooth and knows what gear to go into, there are times when the transmission isn't sure what gear to go into and goes hunting. This is very evident when slowing down or needing to make a pass and is very annoying.

Can that hood really be that poorly aligned?

I don't think so.. Believe that's more of me trying to stand still while taking the picture.. and failing at it.

I don't think so. I believe its due more to me trying to stay still during the picture.. and failing at it.
