"I have a 2005 Malibu I got a year ago last August. I would not recommend it to any one. the worst car I have ever had the worst and more problems with. sometimes my car will not start, there is a light that will not go off when I am driving. after I already got it fix's once. the peace that shifts the car came off and had to get it put back on, my care jerked when I was driving a few times. I need a wheel bearing. to many recalls for a car I think. back to the dealership for the second time. very disappointed. off to get a new car."

Best car I have ever owned!

"I have owned this car since 2006--bought it with low mileage. It has been a reliable car with moderate repair work. The front wheel driving has been decent on snowy roads as well. I would buy another one."

Pros: "Nice ride, lots of room inside, good gas mileage"

Cons: "not cute"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I purchased this car with 29,000 miles on it in 2008. It has done a lot of business travel with me, now in 2014 it has 186,000 miles on it. It has the typical rattle in the dash "turn up the radio" type noise. I have only done maintenance items on this car. The passenger seat airbag sensor has been off for years but other than that no problems what so ever. I have been very impressed with this car. I would recommend it to anyone who is finding a decent mileage used one."

Pros: "reliable, responsive, good value"

Cons: "plastic parts on fuel pump break"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This car has been reliable and easy to drive. If they still made this model I'd trade in for a newer one. Since they don't (why? good question!) I'll keep this one until it stops,probably 250,000+. There has been a problem with a little plastic gadget breaking on the fuel pump. It has broken 2 times and I have needed to replace the entire pump. I'm on my 3rd pump."
