It has not caused unnecessary trips to the dealers. This car loves to be driven!

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

The car has great performance and environment friendly. The reliability is without a doubt. Sitting in this car is like sitting in your living room on the couch. The space within the car is great. I feel safe, protected, and completely in control. The features offered are very nice. I got the most simplest package because I am young and don't have a lot of money to be spending on anything other than the bare minimum. With that being said, the bare minimum of this car is everything and more. The car also has an eco feature where the engine shuts off when you come to a complete stop. Like waiting at a red light or sitting to turn left, also in traffic. That feature is great because it saves me gas and money. This also aids in maintaining the vehicle's quality and ware. The car's size also does not make you feel threatened by bigger vehicles on the road. It takes up just the right amount of space. Not too big not too small.

Self jumpstarts. Not made for families.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

The Chevrolet Malibu Eco is great on gas. The Eco feature helps to save on gas, however, the battery takes up a lot of trunk space. You are essentially left with a little over half the trunk. I love the capability for the car to jump start itself. It is spacious in the front seat but the back seat has little leg room. I wouldn't recommend it as a family car due to the small trunk and the small back seat. You can fit two car seats, one behind each front seat. But you cannot fit two car seats right next to each and leave room for an additional person to sit next to the door. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who drives a lot.

Overall good fuel efficient call. Can be costly with hybrid batteries.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

Currently I am having difficulty with my Malibu. I had to buy two new batteries for my car a hybrid battery and a regular battery. I've also had to replace battery fan. I really like car but the cross between the hybrid and engine is expensive. I have paid about 3000 in expenses on my Malibu this year. Overall a good drive and car but the crossbreed is choosing me a lot of ninety when it comes to service it. 60 dollar oil changes and the car cuts on and off by itself sometimes. Deff need some work but overall a good car

Chevy Malibu: tech-savvy and eco-friendly, family car.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

My Chevy Malibu eco is a very nice car. The smart features are convenient and make driving less dangerous. I love that I can talk on the phone hands free and connect to the sound system in my car via Bluetooth. I can control my music or book from my steering wheel. I am not a fan of the fact that my car auto shuts off when I am at stop lights. It makes it difficult to take off at a decent speed and the heat is not as warm when in auto shutoff.

- Cory H

My favorite part of my car is the legroom and the options.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

This is my second Chevy Malibu. Out of all the different cars I've owned this my favorite. I've never had any major mechanical issues, just some minor ones that were easy and inexpensive to fix. The gas mileage is perfect, I put around 5k miles a month on it. The interior is comfortable with everything within easy reach. With plenty of compartments, I'm able to store everything I need on hand while driving. It is very roomy.

- Faye R

This car runs great just some minor issues

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

minor things like the trim around the floor board started to come off but the dealership fixed it. The battery is a little expensive special since I live in Arizona. The battery life is only 3 years out here in the heat. Regular oil changes help keep it performing well but the dealership told me to wait until the percentage on the oil life is low but it needs to be changed every 3000 miles

- Heather H

Chevrolet Malibu great family car

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

The vehicle rides very comfortably. No noises including clunks, shimmys or vibrations. Gets great gas mileage of 29 miles to the gallon. Back seat while not roomy has room for my children. I do wish there were more leg room in the back for when my children grow older. I love the auxiliary and power plugs in the armrest. Vehicle information menu is very helpful.

- Crystal W

Extremely dependable and reliable

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I've never had an issue with my car. It gets great gas mileage and is the most dependable car I have ever had! My son is over 6 foot tall and he has a difficult time getting into the car because it's a little small. I feel like it's perfect, however I'm only 5 foot 4. There is very little outside sound and my car is already six years old.

- Brandy P

My vehicle is a dependable family car with the luxuries of a higher end vehicle.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I love how much room the inside of the vehicle has, however, I wish the trunk was larger. The Bluetooth feature is my favorite and I will never buy another car without it. All the storage compartments in my vehicle are super helpful as well. Having an all black interior is kind of bad in the summer but it looks really nice.

- Cheyenne R

Love this car! Very convenient for my lifestyle!

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I enjoy the Bluetooth that connects my music to the car. With the Bluetooth I also enjoy when my phones rings while I am driving it answers the calls so that I will not have to touch my phone while driving. It's very convenient and suits my busy lifestyle. I also love the clean surface and the color on the inside.

- Lisa P

Safe, secure and comfortable transportation

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I love the amenities my car has to offer, navigation, heated leather seats, a sunroof and touch screen. I am also pleased with the safety I feel while driving it. The tire gauges and the oil life reader are not quite accurate and I do have an issue with the screen for the sunroof rusting/dry rotting.

- Tracy L

The worst thing I've ever paid money for!

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

This vehicle gives me nothing but problems! Chevy has always been a reliable manufacturer, but the ECO model of the Malibu is by far the worst car I've ever owned. I have constant engine issues & wear/tear of the vehicle seems to happen more quickly than what I'm used to with other vehicles.

- Alexis M

Great small family car that will make it worth your money.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

My Chevy Malibu is really reliable. It senses when you are on a long trip or highway and switches from gas miles to extra battery that is in the trunk. Great on gas mileage lets you know on the screen when there is any problem with this car. Eco friendly. Lets you know how many miles to empty.

- Valerie R

Not worth it, get a better car

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

The car has engine problems at 80000 miles. A cylinder in the engine went out. Needs new engine I always got oil changes on time before 5000 miles. Also very hard to see out rear window when backing up because of the angle the window is tilted. The car is made of films materials

- Cory S

The comfort overall is the best thing about it

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I absolutely love my car! I have not really had any problems with it and it drives amazing! I have great gas mileage with the ECO. I had to get used to the coming to a stop and the car shutting off and cranking back up when you go to take back off. I would recommend it to anyone

- Emily B

Chevy Malibu - 4/5 stars!

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

This vehicle is great. I love the backup camera and the Bluetooth connectivity the most. Driving is smooth and the controls of the car are great. The one problem I do have with the car is the brake. I feel as though the brake cannot function properly, especially in the winter!

- Sarah C

Awesome Clean smooth ride and a eye catching machine

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

I have not one problem it's perfect to me. Great steering Controls luxury inside and the look is awesome I think everyone should have one my opinion it's so much better than my last car. I had a impala cause I'm a Chevy type of guy but I love this car period
