Simple Commuter Vehicle — This is a great car, and i think it looks very nice also. The interior is simple, and a little bland. The overall ride quality is great, very smooth on long trips and tons of cargo space. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Cons

Small trunk space

Nice Car — Nice car, needs more trunk space. Power is great for passing and speeding up on interstate. Braking is great. I realy like this car. Wonderful on short trips. Longer trips is short on luggage space. Wonderful handling and safety seems to be alright.

Safe, Reliable, And Affordable — Safe, reliable and affordable. The vehicle performs as can be expected for a vehicle that size. Took this car on a 3 week road trip across the country and did great in all environments and was fairly comfortable for long drives. Overall good commuter vehicle

Great Family Car — It is a fun car to drive on long distances, gets great gas mileage even when fully loaded up. Comes with XM radio enabled and OnStar enabled. So far I've had to have the rear defroster fixed and the right front shock replaced.

Pros

I love love LOVE this car! It is my dream car and I honestly was not expecting it to be a Malibu at all! This car is the best I have ever had. Sunroof, heated seats, comfortable, sleek classy interior, multiple storage areas, trunk is huge.

Cons

I wish I could see better out the back window and had less of a blind spot.

Unbelievable Dream Come True — It's the best ever!! This car has changed my life. I love the smooth ride, the extra security in traction control, tire pressure watch(whatever it's called), light brightness inside/out, etc. This car rides and feels better than any I've had or ridden in.

seats too low

Awesome — For me the seats are too low, when I drive it my lower back hurts. Bluetooth would be nice too. for being a 2011 the audios system is out dated. I am sure its fuel milage is good cos the car is so low to the ground.

Pros

The Seats are comfortable & Nice Looking. The car is blue tooth/Satellite compatible "fun". At night the blue lights on the dash board and radio look Awesomee!! A/C is amazingg. Steering wheel is light and easy to move. Vehicle picks up speed fast.

Cons

Gas guzzler. I have a E85 flex fuel. I use reg unleaded but the vehicle still consumes gas highly. The vehicle is long and carries weight. Kinda pricey though, he radio dash could have been better.

Fair. — I liked the cocoa/cashmere leather seats alot!! The steering wheel is little. The car overall is impressive. Its a clean hybrid. Nice family of 3 vehicle. Fair enough price for overall package. I like it alot its a good deal.

Pros

manual override shifter with no clutch.
Bose premium 12pk stereo with CD an USB port.
18" wheels

Cons

2.2liter V4 in a car that ways 3500# without driver an or passengers.
false MPG statements
Front engine Front wheel drive with 18" wheels or FF18"

655

Get A Ford — Underpowered 2 liter in a car rated for a 3.0 or bigger due to the weight an all the gadgets. FF. Bring back FR cars people. ( whats with all the pansys on the roads these days? ) LTZ = Fully loaded with all the upgrades on the Chevy site. However get from dealership an its got A: 2.2liter, B:FF, C: No 32MPG as listed. Long driving times should be in another car or SUV as this one will give you tennis elbow at the least and a really soar butt an back from the way the seats are set up. Also to many blind spots for parking correctly unless ya know how to drift park.
