2009 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)


We traded in our 1 year old 2009 Malibu LS for a 2009 Malibu Hybrid 4 months ago. After rebates we spent $3k and the government will be giving us $1550 back. What a steal. We love the car and our salesman. It gets about 37 mpg on a trip or about 6 mpg, on average better than our non hybrid Malibu did. This car has to be the most underrated and thus biggest bargain out there. They are giving them away. We did not loose 20% as we drove it off the show room floor. The Kelly "trade in" for the Hybrid is more than we paid for both Malibus combined. We didn't fully appreciate the car until we had driven it for a few months. We love the way it slows you down without touching the brakes.

Best Features

In the mountains of Pennsylvanian we discovered that where we use to have to brake coming down the mountains, this car lets you leave it in cruse and the regenerative braking keeps you from getting a ticket. Just set it and forget it. The LS was quite, but the Hybrid is quieter.

Worst Features

Keep making them, and add the 6 speed transmission.
