2015 Chevy Malibu Ls

Well I have had this car for two months and I am very happy with it, the 2.5L engine makes good power 196hp and the fuel mileage is very good I actually get the advertised mileage ,the car is very comfortable and all the controls are laid out nice and are very easy to understand and operate it handles great and it is a joy to drive. the only thing I would change is the engine auto start stop feature it works well but I rather not have it and there should be a on-off switch for those of us who would rather have it off but I took care of that and it does not auto start stop unless I want it to. So at this point the car drives and operates just the way I like and I am very happy with it and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a nice mid sized car

It's easy to hook up all of you wifi and blue tooth, making hands free a standard thing. Great on gas, love the interior, Had other Malibu's in the past that lasted and lasted. I mean like 190,000 and still humming along! Dependable, safe and beats everyone on price except the inferior brands. Would let my kids travel in it or recommend to someone's mom. I love this car~!!! Update on 5-30-2016. After six months driving it, I love it even more. My mileage is averaging between 28-.5-29.6 MGP. I drive about 36 miles per day round trip to work and with SeriousXM, it seems like a ten minute drive and I have to sit in the car to finish listening to something every day! 6/1/17 Mileage averaging over 30 MPG. No other maint. expenses but Gas, oil, rotating tires, which are still good at 40K miles. Update December 2017-Just over 50k miles, tires wearing so well I should get the full 65,000+ out of them. Steering still right on, loving the satellite features for using phone, etc. and bluetooth. Only wish now would be to have it just a tad more quiet. I recently rented a Buick Verano and found it to be noticeably quieter and the ride smoother. UPDATE June 2018, over 65,000 miles now and all is well! Just replaced the original Goodyears with the next grade up that are a little quieter. The interior is all intact, still great mileage, and also just changed the fuel filter and blew out the lines. Mileage went from 29.3 back up to 32.43. worth the expense, I would say. Update 1/2020-Just hit 100,000 miles. Still getting 30 mpg mixed miles. Nothing besides two O2 sensors replaced under warranty, and replacing the splash guard clips under the front bumper cover. Don't hit those parking stops!. Still love the car! 2021 update. Still going strong 215000 miles Still Loving the car getting ready for my third set of tires soon. Will likely go with the good years again cuz they've been so great on this car. Still no major issues other than the driver seat is starting to crack and split where the vinyl meets the cloth. Everything else electronically is still working great I find the features that this car had in 2015 or comprable to a lot of the newer Hyundai, Toyotas drama and Kia's and so forth. Plan on driving and a couple more years and buying a 2020 Impala for my cruise vessel in retirement

Really Love This Car

I have owned many cars including Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Cadillac Buick and other premium brands. This car impresses me for its value. It is solidly built with quality materials. It rides well, it handles well, it accelerates well, it is comfortable on long drives and it gets incredible fuel economy for its size and weight. The only complaints I have are the limited room in the rear passenger area and the blind spots in the rear. I recently drove the car from California to Alabama. My average speed was 80 mph. My average fuel economy was better than 36 mpg. Maintenance costs are fantastic. Regular maintenance on this car is about $40 per visit compared to over $400 per visit for my wife's Mercedes C Class. I won't even go into the maintenance costs I experienced as a Jaguar owner. Overall, this car compares quite favorably to similar offerings by Japan or Europe. I drive this car a lot having put over 40,000 miles on it in one year. All of that mileage and no significant problems at all. This is not a sports car and it wasn't designed as one. So, everyone complaining about handling and acceleration are comparing apples to oranges. It drives quite well and is very much like any other similar car like the Honda Accord or Nissan Altima. In my opinion, the car is a bit overpriced. However, I made up for that with GMs military discount which brought the price into reasonable territory. Further, I doubt that the car will hold its resale value the way Honda or Nissan does simply because it is a domestic offering. All in all, this car does what GM says it can do. It is a great value and a great car.

Great Car

First I'd like to say that the negative reviews seem to be from people who've rented the car (and know nothing about it), bought it used, or are weirded out by the Eco 4cyl engine. I bought my 2015 Malibu LS new after trading in my 2006 Malibu LT. I love the start/stop engine which cuts the engine off after you brake for extended periods of time, then cuts back on after you let off the brake. quite a few cars have this set up, you hardly notice it and it saves a good deal of MPG's. Especially if you're in traffic!! As a bonus you still take off just as fast if not faster than you would had the engine still been running. The trunk can be opened via key fob or a small button on the middle tail light when doors are unlocked. It's a huge step up, just the amount of space I'm used to in front and back-it's a bit more snug in back, but the trunk is a bit bigger now. if you're a fan of Chevy, want a midsize sedan with a some "getup and go", a bit of style, and want good MPG's this is the car for you. If legroom in back is an issue, grab an impala.
