"I purchased this car new in Feb 2009 and I love it! If I could make a few changes, I would improve winter handling (howerver I am still on the factory tires at 37,500 miles) and plan to purchase all weather tires the next time around versus the more sporty tires that came with the LTZ package. Also, I am disappointed in fuel mileage - I typically get around 23 - 24 MPG, which is okay, but with fuel prices of late, I wish it were closer to 30 MPG. Otherwise, I love my car - so comfortable with classy styling! I have the V6 and love the power!"
"purchased a 2010 Malibu, basic car...have had problems with the seat belt light keeps coming on, had the car into the dealership 3 times for repair..still light comes on randomly. Then airbag light came on, told it was a recall...dealership fixed airbag light but seatbelt light still comes on randomly..This is the first GM car I have owned and it will probably be the last. Shocks in the front squeak when driving over bumps...Doesn't feel like a quality product. I will go back to Chrysler. My 2006 300 was Problem Free for 3 years of ownership."
"Have only owned this LTZ for a short period of time but so far so good, mine has the V6 and it is very quiet cruising down the highway(freeway) around 70-80mph, and just step on it and it will respond pretty darn good,"
"Had a myriad of minor problems with the Malibu over 12 mo period. Had at least a month of shop time. Gas mileage never came close to predicted figures. However, it was a smooth and quiet ride, albeit somewhat underpowered."
