Impressed and not impressed
By wynne19 on
2009 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I needed a vehicle that got better fuel mileage. I traded my 06 F150 crew cab in for this car.
It has saved me alot of money so far.
It get's 27/city at best. The whole car seems cheaply built compared to my f150.
The transmission went out with less then 30,000 miles.
At least gm fixed it for free.
The "check fuel cap" comes on after every fuel fill up.
I would recommend any body looking for a midsize car to check out the Ford Fusion first. I think they have better quality and reliability. I would recommend a Malibu as a second option.
Relatively good gas mileage, drives and handles well, good exterior design, interior fairly well designed, nice wheel covers
Get rid of the "cheap" feel.
Seats are cheap.
Add power seats.
Trunk opening very small.
