Unless you have onstar, you can buy the 99 cent ebay harness for the malibu and it will work fine.

You are going to need the Metra 70-2103 or repin a Metra 70-2003. These can be found at best buy and local audio places. Also you will mostly need the dash kit which is either Single DIN - Metra = 99-3302 or Double DIN - Metra = 95-3302. Last of all you will need the antenna adapter which is the Metra 40-GM10 or the Scoshe MDA1B

Not meaning to thread jack, but was also thinking about going this route, but dont have a ton of cash for a high end dvd player. Can anyone recommend a nice one that might have xm option either by way of add on kit or built in? Dont need gps either.

I would try dual or alpine, just take your time with it, and maybe you'll catch a good deal. If you can get more cash I would go with pioneer, otherwise alpine and dual are pretty good basic brands. Just do research before you buy.
