Chevy Malibu 2013
By stromit on
2013 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan w/1LT (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Have had the Chevy 1LT Malibu for about a month now.
Traded in a 2006 Honda Pilot with almost 100K.
Hard to trade in but it eats gas like nothing.
Really like the better gas mileage.
Not fantastic but a big step up.
We also have a 2012 Honda Accord.
The Accord gets better gas mileage and is zippier and shifts gears smoother.
But, the Malibu feels like a really nice luxury car.
I really like it better.
In fact, my 18 year old likes it much better than the Accord. More bells & whistles.
Will be interesting to see the reliability in the future for both.
But, I have more faith in GM now than in the past.
As far as OnStar navigation which is free for 6 months, not impressed.
Interior front comfort is fantastic.
A pleasure to drive. Really like the XM Radio. Feels like a luxury car inside with the many interior lights.
Comfortable front seats.
A little difficult to see cars on the right hand side.
A bigger blind spot than I would like so have to really pay attention.
The shifting of gears is not as smooth as our 2012 Accord. The back seats do seem a bit cramped.
