5 great deals on U.S. wheels

When you hear 'Detroit,' you may think bust and bailout. But look past the headlines to find nice prices on sharp cars.

4 of 5
Chevrolet Malibu
Chevrolet Malibu
Sticker price: $21,605-$26,880
Market price: $20,417-$25,402
Cost of ownership: starstarstarstar
Miles per gallon: 22 city 30 hwy.

Remember the last Chevy you drove, maybe when you picked it up as a rental at the airport? This year's Malibu isn't like that one. As in: a nice interior (aside from a few cheapy pieces); a quiet, luxury-like ride; and decent handling. If you get the four-cylinder version with the six-speed transmission, you'll also enjoy even better fuel economy.

NEXT: Ford Mustang GT
