It was either this or a sonata optima or camry in Hertz “Fullsize”. Haven’t driven the new Malibu yet so tried it. It’s unremarkably mediocre. At the rental spec level they’re all the same really. Mushy steering underpowered engines spongy brakes road noise and ride like they are on floppy stilts. It seems to have decent handling chops based on the off ramp I took at speed but zero feel. Interior trim is the same as the hard seats and looks like public bus seats. Visibility is not bad.

Top marks to the newest chevy myLink. Easy fast and user friendly.
