2011 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Just purchased in October 2010. A very pleasant and quiet driving experience especially on smooth roads. Much less quiet on bumpy roads. The car handles beautifully. I am already getting 5 MPH better overall than with my 2003 Buick and i am looking forward for even better mileage as i break it in. Average now is 27 MPG. The bucket seats are not as soft as i am used to but i think i can get used to them. Bluetooth and on star are excellent features and i am already using them.
Nice looking and solid car. All controls are easily reached and back lit.
Needs auto-dimming rear view mirror. Trunk opening too narrow. Door storage pockets too short and shallow. Heads rests front and rear are too high blocking visibility of the rear window.
Update to my original report. The radio is terrible as far as reception is concerned. A lot of the time there is static, stations fading in the local areas, etc. The dealer has as many excuses as you want to hear but as far as i am concerned it is an antenna problem. That chevy. does not want to be conderned with. Thats my opinon. Won't be buying another GM product that's for sure.
