2011 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I had 3 Malibu's 2006, totaled by a drunk driver. 2006, totaled by a bus. Car accelerated into traffic. I reversed as my choice was a gasoline tanker and a bus. 2011 : This car from day one has been a lemon. It is getting worse. I have 18 k on the car. I get 21 miles on open highway and 17 in city. I have been told by GM to put 20 more thousand miles to loosen it up. Door on drivers side leaks and has "been" fixed only to leak worse. At 40 mph there is a dinging in the right rear. At 60 mhp under load the steering column shakes and rattles the whole car. If you let off the gas it quits. Dealer told me this is "normal". Transmission fluid is dark brow..."normal" too. JUNK

2011 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Bought my Malibu in January of this year. There is nothing about it that I do not like. Base model, Summit White exterior. Fantastic gas mileage. I try to focus on my driving habits and make an effort to use cruise control when possible and as result I was able to achieve 39.4 miles per gallon on a recent round-trip to Columbus OH from Indianapolis. Goal was not to exceed 65 MPH. Weekly fill-ups (40% city, 60% highway) always average 27-28 MPG. The car looks sharp inside and out. Chevy created a real winner.

Review

I just came off a lease of a '09 Merc Milan L4 My my new Malibu is so much better in every catagory


Favorite Features

Exterior design, the dash is very well designed and laid out. The comfort of the front seats are very comfortable and supportive, the 4 cyl engine well you cant hardly tell if its running. With less than 500 miles I got 30 mph combines city & hwy. Really like the bluetooth and onstar feature The car handles and rides like a much more expensive car - very impressed so far. I had a '03 LS - there is no comparision - GM did their homework!


Suggested Improvements

Rear seat room, and rear comfort with no armrest is dissapointing! The truck release button on the front door should be lit up at night

Review

I purchased a a Malibu in the fall and I am very disappointed in the gas mileage, I drive mainly on the highway and only receive around 24 to 25 miles per gallon. I purchase this vehicle for the good gas mileage and chevy isn't standing behind their advertisements of 23 city to 33 highway.


Suggested Improvements

We have always purchase chevys but since they don't stand behind their products, our next purchases will not be a chevy. Very disappointed in how we have been treated. From the main office well you are in the range "sorry"

Review

This car is a delight to drive.I have had a malibu before and went to a HHR [no where near as nice].I went back to a malibu this year .I could not pass up the deal i got with the rebate ,credit union discount and previous owner discount.It took a while [2,000 miles] to gain the good gas mpg .On the highway in cruise i get 35mpg with the 4 banger.Has plenty of power and rides smooth.Looks rich with the mocha exterior and cocoa/cashmere interior.I am a happy puppy with it .i hope it continues with no problems .I again say its a delightfull dish [car]
