2008 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


When I bought this car in 2008 I was very impressed with its styling and interior. However over time it really got frustrating. Poorly built and poor design. Power locks driver side and rear don't work. The fact you have to take the entire front end off to change out the headlights is another way for the dealer to make money. The passenger side make up mirror cover fell of within a year of having the car. Sensors continue to go off for tire pressure in the heat. Very disappointed overall. Both remotes stopped working by end of year one, which according to the dealer is a known issue.

Best Features

Car drives well, the V6 Engine is powerful. Not a whole lot of body roll in corners, but not the best.

Worst Features

Take notice of the details, to have to take the front bumper off the car to change the headlights is a very poor design. The lack of quality with the interior of the car is upsetting and the remotes not working is very frustrating.
