2009 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I hate this design, I now hate Chevy and will spend the rest of my life talking against them!! I will never again buy another Chevy after this stupid design.....

Not only can you NOT get to your headlights from the hood, to replace what was a quick 5 minute headlight...

You know have to completely take the bumper off to replace a friggin headlight!!! Worst Design ever!!

NEVER BUY CHEVY!!!!


Best Features

none


Worst Features

ability to replace your own headlight through the hood like every other car in the world....

2009 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had many brand new cars but this is the best. in the last five years I have driven my 2009 Malibu 138000 miles and not one problem. Not one. I replaced my tires and brakes at 75000 miles and the rear brakes still had 1/2 their life left. Everyday I thank my lucky stars for buying the Malibu and would buy another in a heartbeat.


Best Features

It is a cool looking car and handles like a dream. All around gas milage is 30-31 mpg. It is fantastic.


Worst Features

None

2009 Chevrolet Malibu Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My 2009 Chevrolet Malibu hybrid has no armrest padding from the manufacturer. As a result, I have bursitis on one elbow. It also has Onstar but there is no compass in the car.


Best Features

Onstar.


Worst Features

Put padding in the armrests.
