2009 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This car is very solid. You can tell chevy put a lot of attention redesigning the new malibu inside and out. Nice quiet comfortable ride. I opt for the v6..it has plenty of power but not the fastest v6 on the road. But it does fine. Gas mileage is above average. I wasn't sold on the six speed trans at first,(seems like its always changing gears) but very fun with the paddle shifters and now Im use to it. The interior is nicely laid out, and the radio features are easy to use. Being 6'1 it is a little tight getting in, for whatever reason the floor board sill is raised about 2 inches, not sure really why. The only other complaint torque steer..under heavy acceleration the car sways a little.

Favorite Features

I was sold on the styling..inside and out. Nice solid built. I like the soft blue accent lights @ night. Love the paddle shifter. And of course the mpgs.

Suggested Improvements

Not much really..bigger trunk opening. Overall I think its a winner. Very competitive car in today's market.
