Chevrolet Malibu Called 'Best Buy' and 'Top Safety Pick'

Eighteen months ago, the national debate in the U.S. was whether General Motors was worth bailing out with tax-payer dollars. These days, the debate around GM is whether the company's recently issued pubic stock is a good investment, and how many accolades its vehicles are getting from independent critics.

The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu sedan was recently named a 2011 Consumers Digest Automotive "Best Buy," and a Top Safety Pick for 2010 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The two awards add to Malibu's growing list of more than 40 industry honors since it was launched all-new in 2007 as a 2008 model.
