I love carrying all my Canon gear in my car. (there, now it's photography related).
Here's the simple version of the story.
I own an 08 Corolla (Standard issue, Automatic transmission).
I have the chance to switch to Chevrolet Malibu (07 or 08). LT version, not tricked out or with any fancy package.
Anyone around here own the Malibu?...
So far, an online comparison says that the Malibu seems a bit more powerful for its weight, and that the price (MSRP at least) is a bit higher on the Chevy.
Personally, I would trade it without hesitation. However, I have not heard a lot about it. I heard that it seems a bit roomier, and responds a tad better than a Toyota. Other than that... you tell me.
