2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Bought a beautiful 2010 Chevy Malibu in May 2010. Started having 'misfiring' problems in July. Long story short, I have had it for just 5 months 3 of which it has had issues. 4 times in and out of the dealer to try and get it fixed. Called Chevy Customer service and basically got nothing. They don't help, don't call back or if they do it's to repeat what the dealer has already told me. Supposedly it's an intermittent problem and they can't fix it unless they can reproduce it even after diagnostics shows 'misfires'. Then they say they will help get me out of the problem and change their mind the next day. Bottom line is no customer satisfaction. Wish I would have kept my Ford Fusion!


Best Features

Style, design, quiet ride.


Worst Features

Make windows bigger for less blind spots.

2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Opted for the v6, gas mileage is poor, performance is just ok, small trunk opening, can't get anything in it without twisting and turning the article, seats are uncomfortable, visibility is very bad, took rear seat headrest off, put them on front seats because they are smaller, stored the front seat ones, when I looked into the rear view mirror all I saw was headrest, looking forward with the large a pillars is outright dangerous, XM radio poor reception, constantly get disconnected with blue tooth, its useless, my 2007 Impala ltz with 3.9 v6 was peppy and great gas mileage, nice car but this could be better, hard to get in and out, low roofline always hitting head getting in and out


Best Features

Good sounding am/fm/xm radio, fairly quiet ride


Worst Features

Better outside visibility, improve on gas mileage and performance, On star should be an option

2010 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I have been very pleased with this car. Before purchasing I test drove a Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry. This car had the best ride and had better styling than these others. Whenever I have rented another midsized car during the past year, I am anxious to get back to my Malibu. Attention was given to the small details in the Malibu that other competitors did not. The ride is smooth, and the interior is very stylish and quiet. I love the interior two tone titanium color. The black interior was too dark for me. Overall, this is a great car.


Best Features

Quiet interior, sunroof, comfortable seats, XM radio, interior blue lighting, bluetooth, remote start, and exterior blue color.


Worst Features

The dashboard reflections should be reduced.

GM nailed this one. Rides like a dream. Gets great mpg avg 35 mpg at 69 mp. I drive mostly highway miles. The trunk needs to be bigger other than that. Very happy.


Best Features

6 speed tranny


Worst Features

Trunk needs to be bigger

Review

Before summer arrived I thought this car was the best, now not so much. There is a "surging" problem with the transmission when it is hot out and to date GM has not taken this issue seriously. I bought this car to support America, a family member who works for GM and now I am regretting it, too bad because if this issue was fixed the car would be perfect.


Best Features

Stereo Interior/exterior styling XM/Onstar


Worst Features

Minor rattles are beginning to originate from the door panels at 23K - better materials to prevent this. Wider trunk opening, better XM reception, HID headlight option, more powerful 4 cylinder motor option.
