2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic LS Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought mine used with 18000 mls on it. So far I put about 4k trouble free miles on it. Although it is not as a spirited performer as the 03 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE I traded in on the Malibu, I am overall pleased with the performance of the V6 engine. It has plenty of power and is comfortable on long trips. I am 6'2" and have plenty of room. Visibility is great, the car handles well and feels solid. No rattles, squeaks, etc. I would would buy this car again!


Best Features

Fuel mileage; I average 32MPG consistently. Interior space. Handling. Fit and finish. Powerfull HVAC system. Oil life monitor. Great warranty that carries over to subsequent owners.


Worst Features

Although the stereo sounds great I would like an auxilary input. I reaaly do not have any complaints.

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

A big suprise! Why? Because this car has more interior volume and better visibilty than the redesigned 2008 model. The front roof pillars in the 2008 block the driver's view. You also lose head and shoulder room in the new model. Lastly check out highway mpg, 32 in Classic, 30 in new model.


Best Features

Interior room. More than bigger cars like the Impala and Ford 500. Visibilty is excellent. Solid handling. Car has 4 wheel independent suspension, unlike new Mustang and Scion XB which have don't.


Worst Features

In 2008, Styling is King. Alast this car is Plain Jane' Boring exterior styling and gets lost in a parking lot. But if their past such things, this car is a winner.

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the car new and have put 10000 miles on it in a month. i live in Houston Texas and have not had any problems on the freeways. With ethanol blend gas I have got up to 38 mile to the gallon. The only thing I have had a problem with is the tire pressure sensor failing in one tire and having to go to the dealer for repair. The car has excellent visability and is very comfortable. I have spinal cord damage from a previous wreck and can drive for several hours with no discomfort thanks to the lumbar support and height adjustable driverseat. I was driving Toyota cars and since getting the Malibu i wont go back. I wish I had waited to get the new body type but I am very pleased so far.


Best Features

Seating and dash layout.


Worst Features

An ash tray. A 5 speed standard would have been nice, although you can shift like a standard using the shift selector
