2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

As David noted, the absence of a navigation system and a rearview camera in a $30,000 sedan is going to be a turn-off to some buyers. But other than that, the Malibu is aging quite well, now that it's been on the market for nearly three years. This particular, well-equipped, V-6 model impressed me with the smoothness and responsiveness of the powertrain and, especially, the very good brake-pedal feel and response. Add in good steering, a well-damped ride, and good body control, and the Malibu continues to be an entry that anyone shopping for a family sedan ought to have on their consideration list.
