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.

Great Example Of American R&d Chevy Did Good On This One — I was concerned about a 4 cyl, but I wan ted the gas mileage - NO PROBLEM, the power is more than adaquate and the mileage is great. The standard features make it a step above the other cars in its class. The Malibu is a great example of the quality that can be produced when we invest in American R&D. I can't be happier with the investment.

Excellent To Date. — We have only had the car three weeks. The cabin is very tight, steering very responsive and excellent fuel economy. Considering it is 4 cylinder, the performance is very good.

Pros

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.

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!

A Gm Product To Be Proud Of, And Already Admired By Friends. — Provided what we wanted, a reliable car with fuel economy. Although we figured it a base model, the LS has so many standard features we didn't feel a need for more. It is the 4cyl. but the 4spd. trans. makes for plenty of performance. Build quality is excellent and the appearance is crisp and clean. The car is fun to drive and came with one-year free Onstar and 90 days free Xfm. Just an excellent package all-around. The Onstar comes with turn by turn directions--we have been touring Florida with it. We are away tomorrow, a Saturday.

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.
