Miss my (quiet) 2009 Malibu LS
By 2013malibu on


2013 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


I agree that my 2013 is all around much improved on than my traded 2009 LS.
I have to say I am let down since I was anticipating a quiet cabin ride as all the auto site reviewers have endorsed.
Well, I am not experiencing the "quiet" in my new malibu.
I have a annoying vibration/buzz that presents itself when in low gear/ between gears but faithfully dissapears when I accelerate.
Did'nt notice this during test drive otherwise I would of hung on to my 2009 Malibu!

Best Features

Interior much improved, smoother ride, really like the aggressive exterior look.

Worst Features

Wish the front end (nose) of this car was higher. The slightest incline on a driveway and you hear the sound of scraping plastic. Also I think 17 "tires should of been standard on these New Malibus, 16's seem too small for the frame of this car.
