2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan w/1LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Downsized form a 2002 Impala to this for gas mileage. Big mistake. Impala averaged 28mpg. I am lucky to hit that using cruse control full time. Car is very underpowered. Almost dangerous to pass anyone. Car has great looks , but appears to be all flash and lost its basics. Stering while stopped acts like it lacks the power to steer car.
Had for three months and want to replace. Will after getting some of the deprciation. Looking at 2013, it would appear GM knew this car was very deficient.
Gas Mileage. No reason a car with this little power and size should average under 30 mpg.
Concidering Impala with v6 had better gas mileage, they could have more power and get over 30.
Handling is very poor. And steering feels as if it could fail at any time.
