With the exception of the face, the Malibu is a very nice car; and quite competent IMO.
Regarding Accord and Camry...both went on sale about the same time...December Camry sales were up 20% vs. prior December (and the best December since before 2010); Accords were down about 30%. People just don't like the face of the new Accord; in Canada, I've not seen a single one on the road yet - which is crazy, as us Canucks love us some Honda's (Civic is the #1 selling car). Malibu by comparison was down about 25% (off a smaller base) - but still fell within 6K of Accord.
