A really nice little car for the money

by from Chicago on March 18, 2008

I recently purchased a used 07 Malibu LS 2.2 L 4 cyl. I'm nearly 6'-2' and find it to be very comfortable. Plenty of leg and head room. The seats provide good lumbar support. It drives nice and looks good. It also has a fair sized trunk. The ride is fairly smooth but not as smooth as some other mid sized cars. At first I thought I should have gotten a 6 cyl. version but after checking my gas mileage at 25 m.p.g. city driving I was amazed. I've never had a car in my entire life that got 25 m.p.g. city, including a VW Beetle. And and the 2.2 4 cyl. engine provides adequate performance. I would recommend anyone to give this car a try before you buy.

Just what I was looking for

by from Springfield, MO on October 13, 2008

I can drive all day without excessive tiring. Although a four banger, it is quiet unless pushed hard on acceleration and has ample torque for freeway ramps. It might not be the best for four big guys ...
I can drive all day without excessive tiring. Although a four banger, it is quiet unless pushed hard on acceleration and has ample torque for freeway ramps. It might not be the best for four big guys but is fine for the wife and me. It comes well equipped but I bought the LS and had leather and rear view mirror with compass, dealer added. In open country, with no headwinds and by myself, would you believe 40+ MPG when held at 60 MPH? Why buy anything else?

As I said, I would not hesitate to sell this car to my best friend. It's fast off the line, comfortable over long distances and gets great gas mileage. I like the handling and I like the safety of so many airbags. There is very little I dislike about this vehicle.

It had been almost 3 decades since I last owned a GM product. I prefer hatchback vehicles, since I have to haul a variety of tools and parts for my trade, so hatchbacks are by far easier to work with. I have to say I am quite happy with my choice of vehicle. The Malibu Maxx has a 3.5L V6, which gives me greater performance than expected, and good fuel economy considering the size and weight of the car. The amount of storage is good, and I don't feel cramped while driving. The car responds well, and I don't have that tired feeling I did while driving smaller vehicles. I would easily recommend this car to anyone.

This is a great sedan for anybody I'd say the model i have is a LTV6 and is very fast for a big car has lots and lots of torque and will pin you if you drop the auto into low gear and punch it, great reliability so far no problems! My radio is starting to get scratchs and the paint or what ever is coming off a little, the radio in the car is better than any stock radio i've ever herd in my live great voice and extra loud tweaters can be herd from far away, gas milege is ok not to good i think mine avg's around 17.7 MPG but mine needs a tune up badly has not seen a tune up in over 25,000 miles, I like the side curtain air bags also, the only thing i could say that i don't like about my malibu is the body roll, if i try in take a corner fast the whole car moves a lot and when braking body moves alot also, but im used to a performance ford probe gt that had a stiff racing suspension, but other than that i love my new malibu and would recroment it to anybody young and older...

2008 bought this vehicle as Certified Used Vehicle with 26,000 miles. After 6 years of ownership and regular maintenance, this car, with 103000 miles, is still running great. The ride is smooth and comfortable. The 2.2L engine is sufficient for commute or city driving with MPG performance that is above ETA estimates. The interior driver seat area is simply designed with one notable remark. The stirring wheel does block the driver's view of the instrument panel when driving. (even with adjustable stirring wheels, it seems that head bobbing is needed to view the instrument panel.) The back seat area is comfortable for three individuals. The LS model is the base model with standard equipment, such as 4 speaker stereo, single CD. (nothing to get excited about, but gets the job done.} With attention to regular maintenance, I'm confident, this car will have no problem reaching 200K and beyond.

Big car!

by from Grand Rapids, MI on August 8, 2010

It is a very big sedan and I love the gas mileage! It is very nice too. It seems easy to drive and it's easy on the money.

Great car & I've been driving a Honda for 23 years

I drove this car before buying it and I consider myself very lucky to have found it and only 5 minutes from my house! It's a base model, 4 cylinder so the pick up isn't as good as a V6 would have been but if it saves me 2 gallons of gas, I'm grateful for the 4 cylinder and at 55 I'm not drag racing! But hey, it will move when I need it to move; I just have to "give it some gas." My only complaint is a really basic stereo with no auxiliary port to plug in my iPhone but I needed a reliable car more than I needed a stereo and that's what I got for a decent price. Also it is a base model with no fancy leather seats or fancy interior but If you need a decent car, then give this one at least a 2nd look. I needed a car after driving another car for 23 years and the 2007 Chevy Malibu feels like a luxury car compared to my 23 year old car which wasn't bad for its day!
