"Pros: Very easy to drive, great acceleration, mpg very good in summer. Cons: Not best handling in snow, mpg really drops in winter, floor space cramped around pedals, back doors don't open wide enough, trunk too shallow."
"nothing but problems. 44,000 timing chain was replaced. problems with the oil filter, transmission, front suspention,
power windows won't go up after putting them down out of adjustment cable operated..."
"A little hard to get into the front seat without adjusting the seat height. Can't get in with my hat on. Drives very well. A little too much cabin noise for me, but not excessive. Trunk opening needs to be a little larger to put things into. Overall a nice car."
"This car was a great deal. Being that I will not buy foreign, I looked and perused the market for the best rated and most street appeal. This car, after many hard months, came up on top. Not only is the inside very attractive, but the outside is as well. Mine is an LS model, and the only issue that I've had with it, is that I've had to replace the hood release cable. Figuring that it is a main component we fixed it shortly after. Wasn't very hard at all, and cheers to GM for building a car that has the look, the quality, and the return customer."
"We bought a brand new Chevy Malibu in 2009. Very nice looking car, a real head turner. The car looks like a BMW it looks that nice. The price was not bad. We bought the LS base model and have no problems with it. The inside is very classy, the dashboard set up is nice and fun to look at. The car is not bad on gas V4 although it the engine does struggle when you dive over 60mph. The car gets around 25mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the hwy. We really like the car. The cons are the power locks went out after having the car 4 years, the A/C sounds very weak now like its about to go out, and I'm 6'3'' 225lbs and the steering wheel doesn't adjust upwards. With the seat pushed all the way back I can hold the wheel with my knees. The wheel does adjust downward but not upward. But overall we do like the car. Very nice looking, very dependable, and the price was not bad at all. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to purchase one. I would purchase another one if they fix the steering wheel problem."
