We Love Our Chevrolet Malibu Eco — We traded in a 2009 Honda Civic and have noticed that the Gas mileage on our Malibu is a little better than the Honda Civic and our new Chevrolet Malibu has more room than the Honda Civic we even have more trunk room. Overall we are 100% satisfied.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: We love everything about this car. Got a Great Deal from Brett Clark at Pete Moore Chevrolet

Cons: We wish it had a bigger gas tank, and we wish we had bought the Navigation system for it.

Pretty Good... — Transmission could be smoother. good looking vehicle, not the greatest for having three kids in the back seat. Fine for commuting to work. Drives smooth, downshift s hard- dealer called it a "characteristic". I call it an annoyance. Ah well...

Pros: Looks good, no real complaints

Cons: Transmission downshifts hard

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco 1SA FWD Review
G5000 says:
mild hybrid a great idea but really POORLY executed by GM. Car was continually throwing codes for hybrid system issues. Should have bought the non-hybrid version, because the styling and size and ride was good, but the hybrid system problems gave it a huge black eye.
