It's a mediocre car. You get what you pay for. It may look decent for the price but there are a lot of cheap aspects to the car.

Starting with looks... my car is a dark blue overall pretty nice to look at for the price of the vehicle. The shape of the car is what caught my eye the best. Sadly though my car has had some problems and when researching I noticed it's common issues and can be expensive issues. My gas gage went out on my car and when I talked to someone about it they ranged the fix from couple hundred to couple thousand. When researching I noticed it's a common problem with that model of a car. Luckily my husband is really good at fixing things and it cost us $180 to fix but we had to pull out the gas tank to fix it and of course the part that was broken I had to buy a whole set as the part isn't sold individually. I've had constant problems with my seat belt sensor not working saying my seatbelt isn't on when it is and my car will constantly ding. Then lastly the seal on my car door and windows are really bad in the winter time. Every year they are constantly freezing and I can't get my car door open or if I do it then won't close. Same goes for my window. Most of the time my window won't roll down in winter time. Never seen a car have that issue so much.

Not a rolls Royce but a good family car.

Overall, I am happy with my Chevy Malibu. It is a 4 door sedan, has comfortable fabric seats, and is roomy. The trunk is wide and spacious enough for things I haul. The back seat does not fold down. (I wish it did for those times I need to haul something long.) With over 125,000 miles, it began to make a thumping noise. We were told the water pump and timing chain needs replaced. We replaced them, in addition to a used engine with many less miles. However, a sensor seems to be 'off' and is causing shifting problems in our car. Another issue we need to get resolved. I like the way the car turns and 'handles' smoothly. Again - overall, I am happy with the car.

07 Chevy Malibu is reliable, roomy and great on gas mileage

The Malibu gets great gas mileage. I average 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. The back seat is roomy, lots of foot space in the front passenger seat. The trunk is big and can hold my husband's toolbox, a stroller and still have room for groceries or shopping bags. This vehicle has power locks, seats, windows and side mirror adjustment. I love that the gas and brake pedals can be adjusted forward or backward to allow long legged people to have better leg room without taking all the backseat space.
