Dependable and stylish, amazing car with exceptional qualities

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

Drives smoothly, has a nice look to it physically. Drives quickly and breaks seamlessly. It's traction feature allows it to kick in whenever it senses ice which has helped me on more than a few occasions. It's good on gas mileage and has lasted through many long trips. Dependable car I'd buy again in the future if my current one was damaged

Gas engine shuts off with foot on brake. People said, lady your car turned off!

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

Auto is comfortable, four door for easy access, reliable but not as gas saving as expected. Hybrid is more for exhaust saving than gas saving. When first purchased the auto was used for a long daily commute on expressways and was more gas efficient than it is now that I am retired and only use a tank of gas once every 4 weeks.
