Good car, but some shortcomings
By brownco4 on


2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan w/1LT (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


PROS - Fun to drive (acceleration, handling, seat comfort); I like the power moon roof.
Quiet ride and nice, roomy trunk.

CONS - Tilt steering wheel is too low (even when it and the seats are adjusted).
Mileage on my Buick LeSabre is better than this Malibu.
Finally, the trunk release works, but the lifters do not lift, opening it unlike any other car I've ever had.

Best Features

Insulation combines with the ride, to make it smooth, quiet and as fast as you'll want to go.

Worst Features

Raise steering wheel design my 1 to 2 inches. Have the car get within 90% of the mileage Chevrolet advertises; make the truck lifters lift the trunk deck at least four inches, if not fully.
