2009 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
The car has a strong engine and looks great in the metallic red color. Satellite radio is great also At 11,000 miles central steering linkage needed to be replaced-disappointing. Overall the car is a 7. It still does not measure up in quality to foreign offerings although they have slipped in quality and GM is finally moving in the right direction.
Dash, color, engine power (V6), satellite radio
The interior is still very cheap plastic. There is no padding on the door arm rests. Larger cup holders in the front would be great. Turn signal marker on the mirrors. No rear center arm rest. Suspension still needs tuning. Front seat padding needs improvement.
