2011 Chevrolet Malibu Review

Loved this car when we test drove it. The car rides great, is super quiet and has the best stereo system of all the cars we own. It has more than enough power with the I4 engine and 6 speed automatic transmission to get the job done without making it dangerous for our teenage driver. Also, the styling of this car is super sharp!

Handling Ranked 2011 Ford Fusion worse.
"The Malibu was smooooth! The ride was quiet and comfortable, and the electric power steering provided crisp, sharp, responsive steering."
Looks/Style Ranked 2011 Ford Fusion worse.
"The Malibu has strong lines on the exterior with just the right amount of chrome bling to make it shine!"
Front Seats Ranked 2011 Ford Fusion worse.
"The interior design of the Malibu made the front seat area feel spacious compared with the Fusion."
Value Ranked 2011 Ford Fusion worse.
"In my mind, you cant beat the value, style, and ride quality of the Malibu. It was very impressive and thrilling to drive! The Fusion is just a nice car."

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great for the money, lots of room, plenty of cargo space, very reliable,

Cons: lots of body roll when turning, not enough acceleration

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I like the power of this V6

Cons: Small trunk space

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable car, large fuel tank allows you to go on average around 400mi between fuel ups. It has XM radio.

Cons: Sometimes the automatic transmission gets confused when driving around parking lots

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good fuel economy

Cons: seats too low

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.
