I introduced to my wife 2011 Malibu(Summit white) LT1 model when it was new and she bought it and loves it..So this may 2013 I went and bought my 2012(former lease) with 14000 miles for a great price(same color) but it's LT2 model and loaded with heated seats. We laugh about it. It's like driving an expensive car that we only paid $17000 each. Oh yeah! There are cars that cost $50k+ and it's all about name brand and status symbol. We can't afford those and so in our own way, this is our Mercedes or Audi lol..But less fortunate people than us only wish they could own this Malibu. So we are very happy and proud to own 2 cars with the same color and park in our driveway at our cozy home lol..

This car is good looking and comfortable to drive when it starts. Chevy says they do not know about the no start problem, I DOUBT they are telling me the truth. This car has left me stranded 3 times in 2 weeks. It turns over but does not fire. It is not the fuel pump nor the fuse or relay for it. I traded this car in to a different dealer than I bought it from. When I took my new car in for routine maintenance I was told they had sold the Malibu but they had to buy it back because no one could figure out the intermittent no start problem. They figured the 4 yr old car with 70000 miles would have to be sold for parts/junk. The trunk on this car was really a nice big size, however the opening was so small you could not put large items in it.

The longest I have ever been able to drive this vehicle was MAYBE 5 months after purchase. I then had to spend $4,500 and replace the entire engine. In the last month, I have had this vehicle in the shop 3 times. Do not ever purchase a Chevrolet Malibu. I did buy this vehicle in January 2018. I will not have it paid off until January 2023. I am tired of paying for it to be fixed. I do not drive it more than 15 miles per day. This is ridiculous. Please don't waste your money on this car.
