Buyer beware, 3 transmissions in 81k miles
Buyer beware, these 1st gen CVT malibus have PROBLEMS. I purchased this car in 2020, to replace my old car, as I needed more space. What originally seemed like a great deal has turned into a nightmare. I purchased the car with 22k miles on it, and the transmission went out at 40k. I got the transmission warranty replaced, which took 2 months, just for it to fail again at 81k miles. Warranty replaced again, and it's slipping again at 90k. Transmission issues aside, it's not a terrible car. If you like the way these cars look, look at buying a 2016-2018 instead, as they have far less major mechanical problems.
19 MALIBU FRIGID CAR , CRAPPY HEATER
