I agree with the rims issue.Mine have made noise from the beginning so we had to take one off already and it was bent but still making a noise.
am also very disappointed on the gas mileage.I can't seem to keep gas in it and I only drive around 10 miles daily. anyone else with this problem.
Hi Stacy, I know what you are going through - the plastic hubcaps are annoying, and either come loose and make a bunch of noise, or they will crack or break. Next time, I recommend getting a car with alloy wheels. As far as the gas mileage, the '09 Malibu is rated at 22 in the city and 32 highway. If you are not getting anywhere close to that, I would first look at where you are getting your gas from. Avoid places like Get-go (Giant Eagle), Costco, etc...
I get my gas from Shell or Marathon. That should do the trick.
