This is a great little car. Even though we had to buy 4 new tires, the price was great and the condition of the car is too. We would definitely shop on CarGurus.com again!

2012 Chevrolet Malibu Review
The Malibu is classy good looking and an eye catcher. The main fault in my opinion is the handling. Not firm loose. In todays society. The roads are packed. I want to be incontroll. I want to feel the firm ride. I feel Ford. Is the car. My father owns a 2005 F-350. Still smooth. Quality!!!

Was Nice For A Year, Materials Started Wearing Excessively — I don't like that it's a Chevy, it's been the first Chevrolet I've owned and have had some problems with the electric power steering (seems to be very touchy) and chevrolet has been recalling too many vehicles, including my own to really feel safe in their product.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent styling, handling, and braking

Cons: Materials seem cheap, and overall feel of the car seems artificial in some sense.
