2011 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
OK this is my second review of this car after having it for 7 months and putting almost 18000 miles on it.
as stated before i owned an 09 LS and upgraded to an 11 LTZ.
I liked the car enough to buy another one so that should say something.
I still stand by the majority of my first review and I still love this car, but there is one major difference.
The 09 had a 4 speed auto, this one has a 6 speed auto.
So I should do better on gas mileage right? wrong.
I drive mostly highway and got about 75 miles more on a full tank in the 09.
still not bad, but chevy is flat out lying about getting 33 miles mpg.
im getting 23 with 80% highway usage.
otherwise great car.
Everything I listed before.
tons of features for great price.
Arm rest for rear passengers, odd placement of heated seat buttons.
They are on the seat itself and can be accidentaly turned on.
All wheel drive version would be awesome too but usually only found in the large sedans so understandable that the malibu doesnt offer it.
