Good Car Over All And Wont Be Able To Get A Nicer Car For The Money — The car does great on the highway and gets an average MPG of 27.8 between city and highway. Its got enough room for 5 adults and all their luggage for a week. Mechanically this vehicle runs perfectly. Not enough passing power

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car does great on the highway and gets an average MPG of 27.8 between city and highway. Its got enough room for 5 adults and all their luggage for a week. Mechanically this vehicle runs perfectly.

Cons: My dislikes are there are no tinted windows in the rear. The passing power with the four cylinder is not what I am used to coming from a V8.

Great Car To Own — The overall appearance of the car is superior. It was its stylishness that first caught my eye when I purchased it. The car has run great and has handled with the upmost proficiency. The maintenance on the vehicle has been within normal costs. Others have mentioned that the acceleration is one of its cons but I beg to differ. When ever I needed that extra punch to merge with highway traffic it always performed and never let me down. Most of the mileage on the car is due to highway traveling and because of the Cruise Control and Traction Control options, my driving experience was comfortable and safe.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very economical, good gas mileage, very comfortable driving experience, corners nicely and very stable. No major repairs or break downs.

Cons: High mileage.

Great Car — Overall awesome car. Had one issue with the power steering, but nothing else. The only thing I really don't like about the car is the severe lack of power and acceleration. The fuel economy is great, and the interior has room for days. Strongly recommend to anyone!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior space
Fuel Economy
Reliability

Cons: Severe lack of power

Solid Choice — The Malibu has held up nicely over the past four years. It's a nice looking car with a smooth ride. It's very quiet as well. The back seat is a bit small and suitable for 2 not 3 people, even kids.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Stylish, smooth ride, quiet, low maintenance

Cons: Tight back seat

Best Car Ever! — I really love everything about this car. I have only had a problem with how low the under pinning comes down in the front of the car. It is easy to drag or scrap objects. The car rides, drives, and runs very smoothly and quietly. Love it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great.  Rides great.  Nice and spacious for long drives or everyday trips to work. Seats are comfortable.  Good factory sound.  

Cons: Under pinning hangs down too low under the front bumper.  It is easy to drag when hitting a low spot in the road.

Chevrolet Has Finally Done It Right And Built A Car Which Anyone Can Afford, And Its Quality! — I just bought a Certified Pre-Owned 2008 Chevrolet Malibu LT2. My Mother owns a 2008 LTZ and loves it, I can understand why. It is smooth, quiet, luxurious for the price, roomy and good gas mileage. Mine came with a 4 cyl. Engine, which suprised me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth, quiet, roomy, luxurious

Cons: limited turn radius
