Far And Away The Best Bang For The Buck In A Slightly Used American Car. — I have researched this Malibu along with the Accord, Altima/Maxima (which I owned - great car) and the Toyota Avalon and the Ford Taurus. This came out the clear winner in terms of what you get for what you pay. I've been thoroughly pleased with this car from day one and have never looked back. We'll be needing two more cars soon as my wife gets ready to trade hers and our daughters comes of ddrivng age. What do you think I'm going to steer them?

Pros

Comfortable to drive.  Reliable.  The price was great.

Cons

The fuel economy is nothing as promised. It's ok, but with 24 mpg average, with 90% of my driving on the freeway, it's probably the only dissappointing thing about the car.

Good Family Car — I was very surprised by the amount of room the car had between the interior, and the fold down rear seats and large trunk. Overal I'm very happy with the car, but wish that there was a higher mpg. Yes there are newer styles, but with the chrome on the wheels, it's a good looking car.

Radical Ride — The Chevrolet Malibu LS is a great vehicle to own. It is a very reliable sporty family vehicle that is spacious and comfortable to drive. I like that it has On Star and Sirius XM Radio. very spacious trunk and back sit. Enjoy all the hands free amenities that is available.

Nice looks.  Comfortable ride, especially on long distances.  Easy to drive.  Plenty of room.

Doesn't accelerate that fast.  Wish it got slightly better gas mileage.  A tad heavy.

Great Family Sedan For Short And Long Distance Trips — This is a good looking car that serves the needs of a family with growing teenagers and comfort for Dad on short and long trips while being extremely inexpensive but not looking like it is. I feel safe and secure driving this car.

Stylish, Affordable And Great Mpg! — Vehicle is very comfortable and stylish. 4 cyliders still delivers decent power. Two tone leather is not like traditional leather where you stick to it or are freezing in the winter. Satellite radio is a must have. Back seats are comfortable ( i am 6'4")
