2011 Maliu Lt2 — I look the way the car looks and handles great. The back seat is a little small. The gas milage is ok. There is a bad blind spot when you back up. I live in a very small town and have already seen 2 malibus with dents in their rear bumpers and have already warned my hubby that it will prob happen to me to

I Love It! — Wow. Where do I start. Fabulous car. No repairs needed. She has a 2.4L & it moves like a friggin' V6. Its fast. Gas mileage is amazing. 22 cty/ 33 hwy (I averaged 35.2 MPG's) It a very fun car to drive. Highly reccomended.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

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.

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"

495

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.

OEM tires.

Great Commuter Car — Excellent daily driver, handles well, good acceleration when needed even with 4 cylinder, well put together, comfy, but the Firestone OEM tires squeal a lot like its a ZR1 Vette. It is fun to drive and though sizable, doesn't feel like it. I should had the visability is great, very few blind spots.
