Love in the Chevy Malibu but having issues with the headlight

2012 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ w/1LZ

To change the headlights you have to remove the whole front piece of the car so it's a lot of work to change headlights something that should be really cheap to do now cost 150 to change one bulb. After owning the car for five years I had a lot of issues with the headlights the bulbs were going out because a shortage connection to the adapters. Overall I really love the car I think Chevy is a good brand I haven't had no major issues after all this time.

Chevy Malibu will take care of you if you take care of it.

2012 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ w/1LZ

It's been running great since I got. Bought it used put about 10,000 miles and I'm doing my first tune up and brake pad replacement this coming weekend. The mileage is great and it's fully loaded so it feels really luxurious. I love the car and the color is white with like a red tint to it. Looks amazing in sunlight. Best most reliable car I've had thus far. Especially for a used car.

Very economical fuel and price wise.

2012 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ w/1LZ

Very reliable and performs well. To date I have not any motor problems. Auxiliary outlet breaks easily through. Passengers say they it is a very comfortable and smooth ride, even in the back seat. Fuel is very economical. Pricing is good for all of the comfort features included.

Economical and fun car. I love Chevy.

2012 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ w/1LZ

It is a very economical car with great gas mileage. It looks great. It is easy to drive and maintain. If you want a good midsize affordable car this is perfect. The body size and style are great, gas mileage is great. Chevy is the only car I want to drive.
