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.
