Hi...can we talk?...about NEEW Chevy Malibu?? Is the Malibu really new or is
it a recreation? As in a recreation of the Australian Holden Monaro. I mean
isn't the Malibu just a Holden Monaro with a Jenny Jones makeover to fit in
with the US market? Add some makeup and a few upgrades here and there and
Vvwaallaa!, an all new car at least as it would seem to most. Back to my
question and correct me if I am wrong but isn't the Malibu just a rehabbed
rebadged GM Australian car?
No, it isn't even close. It is a related to an Opel designed (as is the
Saturn Aura). I am surprised you think the Monaro and Malibu are related.
The Monaro is rear wheel drive with a longitudinal engine, the Malibu is
front wheel drive with a transverse front engine.
Maybe you are thinking of the recently discontinued Pontiac GTO or the new
Pontiac G8. Both of these are Australian built rear wheel drive sedans.
