-tilt steering
-telescoping steering

-auto-dimming rear view mirror
-variable intermittent wipers

-and a partridge in a pear tree

There may or may not be a couple things I forgot.

Some of you sissies need to quit whining, this thing does everything but wash the dishes for you.
Just my not-quite-humble opinion.

You forgot really rough ride and a lot of road noise. Both standard options.
I have two 2012 Malibu's for daily drivers, mine is just your BASE model and it has all the options you listed except the Partridge In A Pear Tree. Nice car but nothing to get excited about. I don't think there is even a Malibu?.com (have no idea what gen they are) to go on.
