2007 Chevrolet Malibu LS Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've always been a Chevy guy, but i think its time to switch. At only 60,000 miles the dreaded power steering clunk that all malibus are having showed up, the exhaust is leaking very bad , the rattle noise in the dash is driving me nuts, you cannot open the rear windows over 30 mph because the rear panel under the rear window starts to rattle, need i say more . GM says there are no recalls on these issues . Ok who decides to issues a recall? They need to take care of these problems . I dumping this joke , heading to the ford dealership soon. good luck chevy . give me a call next time you need a bailout . NOT

2007 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car hoping it would be a good vehicle like the previous GM products I purchased in the past. I am disappointed and the more I drive it the more I hate it. My number one complaint is road noise. You can here every bump you hit and everything rattles under the car. The plastic bumpers, grill, and lights are easily moved with your hands. the whole front end is held on by plastic clips allowing a lot of travel and contributing to the road noise. GM could have done a better job. Not the quality product I expected from GM.


Best Features

Dash, Console


Worst Features

Noise reduction. Better Built front end

Review

I bought this car because I wanted a 4- door car with good gas mileage. I didn't expect too much. I'm satisfied with the car. There is a rattle around the passenger dash/firewall. It is pretty much constant. There is another rattle around 45mph that seems to come from under the car. Other people have reported these rattles.


Best Features

Gas mileage is very good for the size of the car. It is roomy enough for 4 people.


Worst Features

The rattles are very annoying. It will also make the car hard to sell. The suspension is too soft, which makes it harder to drive in the snow.

Review

I really enjoy driving this car, it's roomy (my tall family members can sit comfortably in the back), the seats are comfortable and it handles EXCELLENTLY on snowy MT roads, although unlike 4/AWD cars, I am unable to stop on snowy/ice covered hills. I had test driven other higher- end Malibu's, but this was the only one that didn't have the weird rattley windshield that the others had. The interior is a little plain, but the car is very affordable and is perfect for young adults. Despite it having a small engine, it is still a pretty zippy car. If you're looking for a basic, safe, easy, & fun to drive car, the Malibu is a great choice.


Best Features

The comfy seats, roomy backseats, CD player, AC, Cupholders, fun to drive, Cruise control options on the steering wheel, and high-low gear options on the gear shifter, large headlights.


Worst Features

Less plain interior, move temperature gauge so it is more easily read.

Review

Has been a decent car that has been solidly reliable. No breakdowns or major problems, or even minor problems. Just a semi-minor glitch or two has plagued the car. Is comfortable and smooth over bumps, during turns etc etc etc.


Best Features

Smooth ride. Comfortable. Roomy in all areas. Lots of head room. Responsive steering.


Worst Features

Improve road visibility, is good, but could be better. Improve interior quality. Cloth seats are made of rough material that could be done away with.
