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


We're off to a good start.
The car looks nice standing still and has a moon roof that adds to the look.
It's a unique off white color outside and has a leather with suede look seat.

Soon after buying this we drove 1400 miles over a weekend with four adults.
Both front and back seats were comfortable.
The headrests in front and the seat belts are some of the most comfortable we've ever had.
Front seats also recline for naps on those trips.

Acceleration is good, and this car will roll along for hours at high, interstate speeds with indifference to winds.
The car is very quiet also.

The large trunk is very nice as well.

Best Features

On-Star directions are nice. Seats are very comfortable, and the car rides smoothly. It'll take you faster than you should drive; handles well.

Worst Features

Steering wheel is too low (even when raised) for a tall driver. So far mileage is 27 - 28 (combined). The back seats fold to load larger cargo, but the seats don't fold flat (enough) like they did on a previous Oldsmobile I owned. I won't be subscribing to Siriux XM radio; but that's a matter of taste.
