2014 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan w/2LT (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
i enjoy the zippy buzzy 2.5 4-cylinder, it pretty sufficient of
moving the car swiftly. very nice ride for what it is, but can be floaty and too bouncy, while road noise is well controlled, rear seat space is smaller than i'd like but its not that big of a car. the biggest complain is the rear seats though. they are very hard and literally hurt me and my passengers, but no complaints with the front ones, they're rather comfy. the dash and leather are nice soft materials, but some dash parts seem just glued on and put on in a rush almost. the media system is also rather hard to comprehend and can be very confusing at first but becomes easier over time; also the stereo is pretty lack luster.
the beefy, masculine styling with the aggressive alloy wheels, is a nice combo. i liked the dash set up and most of the materials used to make it. i really like how is a top safety pick plus. its pretty decent base engine is pretty quiet and almost makes you think your in a more up-scale vehicle.
the LCD is pretty large and is very responsive and sensitive. the little cubby behind the radio is a nice modern touch as well.
THE BACK SEATS! they are dreadful, and hurt the rear passengers. you can feel the body of the car under these seats! it might just be mine, because i don't know how a company can let a car, with rear seats like that, off the production line. the roof inside also feels kinda tight, and causes visibility issues both forward and rearward. also would suggest a better audio system. its ok for basic listening, but for music enthusiasts, the mumbling speakers wont be enough. if there is a stereo upgrade, GET IT!
