Chevy Malibu Delivers!

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!

I has a smooth ride. You dont expect a lot of zip in this model, but it will surely get you around quick enough. The desidn in side and out side is great. Had serval comments about it. The steering is quick and easy to handle in heavy traffic. I thnink quiter tires to stop the road noise would make it a lot better.

My wife and I bought this vehicle a week ago after doing a lot of research on four door sedans, and we were not disapointed. We have a 6 month old child and the car seat fits in the back with plenty of room for the person in the front passenger seat, I love the look and feel on the interior an the exterior, the ride is great and it gets great gas mileage, I love how I can preset all my favorite stations (AM and FM) on the radio display, and it hanldles very well in snow. It's just a great car

This is the nicest car I've ever owned, and, the first American car I've purchsed in many years after driving two Honda Accords into the ground. Ir's quiet, handles well and it's a beauty. Oh, and did I say I like that V6 engine! I'd recommend it in a heartbeat!

I originally looked at a jeep because we had one, and my husband told me he wanted a car. i was a little hesitant at first since ive always had suv's but i have never had to tell him he has been right so much before. I am soon to be a new mom and i love the safety features, love the front, it gives me my mean suv front without the gas guzzling. rides so smooth and overall i would defiantly recommend this car.

Seats not as comfortable as they should be. Smooth at highway speeds, but it takes a while to get there. Mine has chrome wheel covers, alloy wheels should be standard, this is a 1LT. Would like it better with different wheels but the OEM ones are very expensive. I wish I would've noticed that the gas door is on the passenger side. Had I have known that I might have chose a different car. it just bugs the heck out of me, I am used to the gas being on the DRIVERS side. GO figure. Needs better storage, the center dash storage is so shallow that it will barely hold sunglasses and a cell. The cup holders in the door are a joke, they won’t hold anything larger than a can drink. They only reason I bought this car is for the mileage and the fact that it’s sold by a US company. I have had bad luck with the few imports and blue ovals that I have owned. Overall is a pretty good car, just don't expect a lot of performance or storage for small items in the cabin.

Started out with a Mailbu years ago. The vehicle has morphed into a pure Road machine. Nice style and top performance on the open road. Many new safety features have been added over the years and they are great to have. The mileage is so much better than earlier years and the 4 cylinders engines have more pep than the ones of the past. This is a top choice car--drive it--experience it--you will love it. This is why I came back to the Malibu model.

I stopped because traffic was pretty bad.., looked and wasn't pressured but the sales guy (doing his job) was asking all sorts of questions. After doing the run around they approved me for the 2010 Chevy Malibu LS Fleet. Didn't even test drive it. Didn't like it much at first but it definitely ran better than my previous car. Now that I'm used to it I absolutely love it and I believe I'll have it until it dies.., because although every car has pros and cons it has waaaaaay more pros :) Pros: Gas mileage, occupant space, ride, A/C, heat, style on the inside & out, information center in the instrument cluster, center console, REMOVABLE CUPHOLDERS, radio, interior colors (a lot more but won't list everything) Cons: trunk space, having to remove the whole front bumper to change a headlight bulb, uncomfortable driver seat (at least for me), having to buy the higher grade windshield wipers because of the special attachment, and no satellite option (in mine because it was ordered without it.., which also means no Onstar)
