Pros

Nice riding car, good power and great gas mileage.

Cons

Should be categorized as a small car instead of a mid-sized. A six foot person is at the height limit for this car. The gas mileage sensor drops off from around 40 miles to low gas alert.

2010 Malibu Review — I really like my Malibu, I just wish it wasn't so low to the ground. This makes it very difficult for me to get in and out with a bad knee and back. Car drives great, is easy to take care of, and pretty easy to add modifications to.

Grocery Getter On Steroids — Overall really like the car, got all the bells and whistles. Would like a navigation screen versus Onstar. Love the leather Alcantara, great A/C and heat both amazingly fast to heat up or cool down. Nice 18 factory alloys!

Love the overall look if the car inside and out. It has great extras including heated seats, remote start, and wireless bluetooth. Gas mileage is great!

Cons

The only dislike would be the size of the cupholders.

Favorite Car Of All Time! — This Malibu exceeds all my expectations for a midsize sedan. It's very spacious for a family of four. The overall look is very classy with the suede/leather interior and woodgrain trim. The gas mileage is awesome for a vehicle with this size engine. Even with a 3.6L V6 engine, it still gets up to 32mpg in the highway! I can't say enough positive things about this vehicle.

Great car, liked its attractive styling and well-balanced ride and handling.

Cons

Its reliability is on the low side for the class, and the back seat wasn’t as comfortable, could use a free navigation system and

Great Car But Can Use A Little More Accesories — The front-wheel drive 2010 Malibu has a four- or six-cylinder engine, which is paired with a four- or six-speed automatic transmission. The base four-cylinder Malibu gets 22/30 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. Six airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and traction control are standard on the 2010 Malibu. Inside, the base Malibu includes a standard power driver’s seat, cruise control, OnStar and a six-speaker stereo with satellite radio and auxiliary input. Upper trims include available features like heated seats, Bluetooth, leather seats and an upgraded stereo. Overall I would recommend this car to friends and family.

Meets Expectations, Good Value; Excellent Quality — This is my second Malibu LTZ. Loved the 2007 I traded in on this one so much I even sent a complimentary letter to the GM/UAW employees at the Kansas City Assembly Plant (something I rarely do and seldom feel that strongly about). Although the Ecotech 4 cylinder offers acceptable performance, I wish I would have ordered the V6 like the last one had.

Pros

This car handles very well, I was surprised at the power  of the 4 cylinder engine.  The fuel economy is outstanding--no complaints at all.

Cons

I cannot think of one bad thing to say about the Malibu--I love it but need a larger vehicle for travel/pulling the boat/camper.

An Economical, Comfortable Ride! — The Malibu is comfortable, agile, and surprisingly powerful, but quiet at the same time. Shifts smoothly, no hesitation or bucking like you find with some 4 cyls. This is a solid handling car, its size belies the solid feel. And the fuel economy is awesome! I get 23- 25 mpg around town, and have gotten as much as 34-35 mpg highway.

Beautiful — This car is beautiful and immaculate. It is an Imperial Blue 2010 Malibu LTZ with Heated Black Leather Seats, 18" Alloys, and a Premium Sound System. Great car for cruising or commuting back and forth to work. Handles well and a beauty.

Great Car, Recommend It To Everyone Even If You Dont Have Kids — Love it, love it, love it. I wish I had went with the v6 but the ecotec 4 cyl. doesnt do too bad, plus it gets pretty fuel mileage. There is a slight popping noise only if youre on a gravel road, i think its struts. Very nice, it has paddle shifters and is a six speed so its super fun to drive. It has factory 17" wheels think im putting aftermarket 18s or 20s. Ive already put a K&N drop in filter want to get an Injen cold air intake with a Jet mass air flow sensor.
