2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I've had my 2010 Malibu LTZ (4 cyl engine) for 3 months now and absolutely love this car. I replaced my 2001 Grand Am SE (6 cyl eng) which I had purchased new in 2000. The new car "wow" feeling of this Malibu is still great after 3 months. Performance of 4 cyl engine is very good. If you are inclined to think you need the 6 cyl (like I was) I recommend you at least test drive a 4 cyl. Car is so quite and ride very smooth. Quality and fit and finish all seem excellent. Interior very spacious. I'm getting 27 mpg in mixed driving and got 34 on my one pure highway trip so far. 8 way adjustable seat for driver is great. Can't imagine anyone not finding a good setting.
- smooth, quite ride - engine performance for 4 cyl is very good - loved the heated seats during the winter (I had never had them before) - looks. Good blend of sportiness and luxury sedan look - Radio and USB port. I can plug in a thumb drive and play all my favorites
- glove box needs to be just a tad bigger to better hold maps and other papers -
