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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great power

Cons: Kinda pricey

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

Great Car But Can Use A Little More Accesories — The front-wheel drive 2010 Malibu has a four- or six-cylinder engine, which is paired with a four- or six-speed automatic transmission. The base four-cylinder Malibu gets 22/30 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. Six airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and traction control are standard on the 2010 Malibu. Inside, the base Malibu includes a standard power driver’s seat, cruise control, OnStar and a six-speaker stereo with satellite radio and auxiliary input. Upper trims include available features like heated seats, Bluetooth, leather seats and an upgraded stereo. Overall I would recommend this car to friends and family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car, liked its attractive styling and well-balanced ride and handling.

Cons: Its reliability is on the low side for the class, and the back seat wasn’t as comfortable, could use a free navigation system and

Meets Expectations, Good Value; Excellent Quality — This is my second Malibu LTZ. Loved the 2007 I traded in on this one so much I even sent a complimentary letter to the GM/UAW employees at the Kansas City Assembly Plant (something I rarely do and seldom feel that strongly about). Although the Ecotech 4 cylinder offers acceptable performance, I wish I would have ordered the V6 like the last one had.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking car; totally trouble free; reliable; comfortable on a long trip; performance and handling above average for a four cylinder sedan.

Cons: Fuel economy less than expected; interior trim level

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.
