2009 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
We've got the 4 cylinder, with 6 speed automatic transmission. Owned it 9 months now. Plenty of power, great mpg. Love the interior lighting, the auto headlights, Onstar, the hands-free phone with the option of using our Verizon minutes. Hwy mpg was always over 30 on a 1200 mile trip. Husband says he likes all the info he gets from the Driver Info Center on the dash as well as the traction control here in snowy MN. With all the airbags and the crash test ratings, I feel very safe driving it. The sunroof, 18" chrome wheel package and the optional spoiler really make it a head-turner.
Auto headlights. Blue interior lights. Onstar and phone. Up-to-date styling.
Like a lot of others, I feel the trunk opening is small. At first, visibility was a challenge, especially around the wide windshield pillars, but you learn to adjust.
