2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
We bought our Malibu in April of 2010. In the beginning we absolutely loved our Malibu. After a few months of owning it problems/things we dislike began to appear. First, the 4 cyl is not enough for this car. It has devoloped a hesitation when hitting the gas (delayed for 1-2 seconds sometimes and is dangerous when trying to get out of the way!). Second, the seats are hard and uncomfortable for more than a half hour. They hardly have ANY padding and the backseat had no center armrest. Third is visability, its not horrible, but if you are around 5 feet tall you will have trouble or cannot use your mirrors. Other than these issues the car is a good overall car, but we are about to trade it in.
Exterior looks, USB port in radio, dual power/ heated seats, spacious trunk
1)2.4 acceleration lag that cannot be fixed after a few months
3)Bose stereo system could have more oomph
5) Gas mileage (we live in Pittsburgh where there are tons of hills and we are averaging 15-16 mpg in mostly city driving!)
