Car buying strategy included extensive research on the cars most suited to my "must haves." I wanted a car with super safety rating, excellent gas mileage, and style (inside and out) obviously in my price range. My 2010 Chevy Malibu 2LT has all that AND MORE! Financing commitment lasts for five years and I wanted a car that I knew I would LOVE for that long!
I have owned this vehicle for two months and couldn't be happier. I love this car! Here are my favorite features: almost 30 mpg, peppy with a 4cyl engine, remote start, heated seats, sunroof, Bluetooth, quiet and stylish interior, ambient interior lighting (at night), smooth ride, leather seats, quality sound system, and sporty exterior with chrome wheels.
The 2LT has a higher trim level I wasn't sure I could afford but luckily I found a pre-owned car with only 900 miles on it. In looking at the LS and 1LT I was disappointed in the cloth seats which appeared "cheap." The wheels seemed subpar as well.
I hit a deer only a month into ownership and it's stopping power and traction were amazing!
My tire guy said to be prepared for expensive tires when replacement is needed. A wider tire is used so I'll be saving in advance for that. Also opting for a recommended synthetic oil to enhance engine performance and sustainability. I'm happy about the 100K powertrain warranty and I did opt for the additional mechanical warranty through 75K miles so I'm feeling secure in Chevy's backing on this car.
My last and final high five on this car is that it is MADE IN AMERICA! Kudos to Chevy who have outclassed the imports on a superb mid-size sedan that is stylish, safe, dependable and economical to drive!
