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


Review

Poor quality inside and out, with a lot of plastic. However, it's a comfortable and quiet car that's easy to drive in any weather.

Review

What a mistake this piece of junk is. There are countless recalls and they are all on insignificant things. Do yourself a favor and google "2011 Chevy Malibu Engine Power Decreased" and read the reviews about this POS. There is no recall for a problem that costs not only $2,000 TO FIX, but can be deadly. Long story short, there is a faulty sensor that goes out somewhere between 50,000-120,000 miles (roll of the dice) that is going to without warning make your car shake and reduce your engine power. There are stories about people on the freeway that had this happen while driving and their car dropped to 25 miles per hour.

Go in to get it fixed, $2,000 to replace the damage this stupid sensor has caused. Don't buy this car. Ever. For any reason. Until there is a full recall don't touch it.

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

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.
