2008 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Days after I purchased my '08 Malibu the right front brake kept seizing. The dealer had it almost a month and still couldn't figure out the problem. Finally another dealer in Mesa watched me drive and found the problem: The steering wheel, which I put low, was pinching a cable. Within a week a new part was installed. No problems since. I drive approx 70 mi r/t daily, and the gas mileage is really good. Comfort and style fantastic. On a 2 week trip up to Tacoma I never tired. Love the Sat radio, Onstar, etc. I'd buy another in a few years.

Best Features

XM radio, Onstar, seating, roominess, remote start.

Worst Features

The "six-year" battery doesn't last long in Arizona; trunk opening could be wider; depth is OK but hgt could be better in trunk.
