we all expect the best and this malibu has performed much better than average. one complaint that i have is mileage odometer is off reads about 103+ miles for every 100 chev says this is not unreasonable and won't fix. i have had turn signal bulbs burn out but replaced with heavy duty no problems.
powerful engine, smooth automatic, remote start,electric steering,power peddles,gas mileage 35 mpg after correcting for error. conservative style ok for me.
cloth seats could be upgraded. odometer should be more accurate. if car was couple of inches wider in rear seating better to seat three.
