2009 Chevrolet Malibu Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My 2009 Chevrolet Malibu hybrid has no armrest padding from the manufacturer. As a result, I have bursitis on one elbow. It also has Onstar but there is no compass in the car.


Best Features

Onstar.


Worst Features

Put padding in the armrests.

2009 Chevrolet Malibu LT2 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I am very disappointed in the trunk opening and very, very disappointed in the gasmileage for a car rated at 48 mpg that gives something between 25 & 35 mpg depending on the length of drive and weather conditions. Why no driving lights on the LT2 model?

Review

I agree with the rims issue.Mine have made noise from the beginning so we had to take one off already and it was bent but still making a noise.
am also very disappointed on the gas mileage.I can't seem to keep gas in it and I only drive around 10 miles daily. anyone else with this problem.

2009 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my car for 3 years and I have over 98,000 miles. I have had no problems with the car, it's been extremely reliable.
I really enjoy owning an American product!


Best Features

Fuel economy I average 30mpg, and it has a smooth ride compared to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
