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


wife loved it but is easily impressed.
i've driven this car for 1 year now and bought it after describing the testdrive as "adequate" to her and the salesman.
when i feel different, i will change my review.

we bought it from dealer near end of 3 year warranty and the first issue to fix was excess wind noise due to thin metal and windows.

it was heaviest in its class so seemed safer against larger vehicles, but feels paper thin.
closing doors sounds tinny.
poor mileage way never ever coming close to ratings is biggest issue with it.

Best Features

stereo bass seems a bit muffled until high volumes where it actually starts to sound good due to some built-in cascading loudness feature. every cup holder in the car is largely dysfunctional and cumbersome i.e. only 1 is unusable.

Worst Features

my top 2 complaints (also common): A. fuel economy is way under fuel rating my 09 malibu never reaches it and is consistently 15% under - my fullsize chrysler V6 gets better hwy miles B. front bumper too low scrapes on parking lot curb/stops and driveways Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan 2009 1. Front bumper too low to the ground. 2. Raise front a bit - hits curbs. 3.Front end too low - scrapes when going into some driveways and parking in most spaces with a curb. source: http://www.reviewcars.com/2009-chevrolet-malibu Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan 2010 4. The front bumper is too low & scrapes source: http://www.edmunds.com/chevrolet/malibu/2010/consumer-reviews.html
