Ask the questions you would want to know if you were going to drive your family in this car.
-How did it rate on test crash tests?
-How does the roof hold up if it rolled over?
-How many airbags does it have and where are they?
-Do all the seat belts (front and back)come with should harnesses?
-How many seat belts / seats are available in this car?
-How much room does it have in the trunk for strollers and other things you need to have with you on a daily basis?
-Does it have something to hold groceries from moving around in the trunk?
-Does it come with a full spare tire? A Donut? or does the tires it come with have that special compound that seals itself if you run over a nail in the road?
-Does it come with a standard GPS system? Does it have a car phone in it?
-How does it handle in the snow? Rain? Dirt roads?
-What type of warranty does the manufacture provide and for how long?

I would suggest you ask questions about what they had in mind when designing the Malibu, what features had Mom's, kids and families in mind as far as design for safety, reliability, comfort , ergonomics, entertainment, etc.
Best to also just give your personal honest opinion of the Malibu for you too.
Would you buy one and why?
