The Malibu's si a boat of a car, in a good way.

Easy to repair. Quick. Reliable. Sturdy. Has a lot of trunk space. Has a lot of cab/ back seat space. Good work car. Good for camping and travelling. Has had some factory issues that we're manufacturer repaired free such as the ignition. Has minor electrical glitches; ie it honks to set the alarm when put into park, even though my model never had an alarm, occasionally does a theft system lock out; again, has no theft system to speak of. Am 3rd owner and it is still rolling on. Gaskets around back window between trunk have brittle and leak, but that is another user serviceable issue. I use this car to move tools, painters equipment, computers and music equipment (amplifier,, instruments, speakers, pa, monitor stands, instrument stands) paintings, easels. I can fit a painters ladder in it. I am constantly surprised at the amount of stow this little sedan is capable of transporting.

Gm tick, comfortable, coolant leaks.

Has the classic gm tick to the engine, does not cause any problems, just takes getting used to if never heard it before. Seals in the door are failing, so wind hitting the car just right, lets the air into the car easily, only noticed during winter. Major coolant leaks, but I just add coolant every other week. Car is comfortable for my shorter height with the armrest and cup holder. I do not use the sunroof but it is a nice feature for the very rare occasion I do. Power adjustable seats are a nice feature that I haven't had in any other car previously.

Malibu: smooth riding, few repairs, leather seats, sunroof.

I bought my car in 2012 and I have not had any serious problems out of it. I had to get a new battery last year in 2017. I have not had to get any major repairs done at all. It is reliable, runs good. I wish I could afford to get the new Malibu's. It has a sunroof and leather seats. It is also good on gas. The labor is also reasonable. Friends always tell me cold the air-conditioner is in the summer and the heat is really hot in the winter. You cannot beat that. If you want your money worth in a car get yourself a Malibu.
