Chevy Malibu, amazing for road trips.

I love my Chevy Malibu! It is extremely comfortable and nice to drive. The seats are not uncomfortable to sit in for any extended amount of time. Driving the Malibu is very comfortable and easy. It gets amazing gas mileage for long trips it makes spending money on gas a much easier expense to handle. The Malibu is very roomy as well. It has lots of room in the trunk to carry anything you need. It is also extremely comfortable for passengers in the backseat. There is a lot of legroom to make you comfortable. My Chevy Malibu has great speakers as well. It makes listening to music fun and a great experience. The Chevrolet Malibu is a very stylish car as well. It looks modern and expensive but it is actually quite the opposite of that. It was a very affordable car to purchase. Cruise control is extremely easy to use in the Chevrolet Malibu. It makes driving long-distance is a lot easier and more comfortable as well. I feel very safe in my Chevrolet Malibu. The seatbelts function well the backseat is also a great place to buckle and your children and feel safe doing so. The cupholders are also a great addition to the car. Having many cup holders around is important when driving around passengers especially having them in the back. Cloth seats inside of the Chevrolet Malibu are easy to keep clean and look great as well. Overall it is an amazing car and I hope to have it for many years to come.

Even though the car is small, it has A LOT of room.

The gas last a long time if you do not travel far of course. And it does not need much gas either.. I never spend more than $30 for gas. The car is reliable. I never had a problem or issue when it came to the car. With this car, you are less likely to have car troubles. This car has sensors for everything. If there is not enough air in the tires or you need an oil change, the car will let you know. You are able to move the seats forward, raise it up, or bend the seats back. The buttons are easy to use. The images on the buttons are pretty explanatory. The volume buttons on the steering wheel are important. It helps with hands free driving. It would help if the Bluetooth did the same. The only thing I do not like is that the car is Bluetooth, but you cannot listen to music. All the car does is let you talk on the phone through Bluetooth. Also there are not vents in the back, so if anyone is sitting in the back it will be too hot. In Arizona is gets dangerously hot so air conditioning is extremely important. The vents in the front are a little annoying. The vents don't let air blow likes it�s supposed to. The shape is just weird and I do not like it.

Very satisfied overall! However, there are pros and cons.

I am very satisfied with almost all aspects of my vehicle. It is comfortable and very reliable! The technology in the car is easy to use and easy to understand. However, I would change a couple things. It would be nice to have more space to put things. I am a single mom with a school aged son and it would be nice if my car didn't always feel so cluttered. Also, the Bluetooth in the car can sometimes not function properly. For example, if someone calls me and it goes over the speaker in my car via Bluetooth and I try to transfer it to handset, I have to push the transfer button on my screen about 3 times before it�s successful. That can be very frustrating at times especially when I'm trying to focus on the road. Also, if I am trying to play a video on YouTube or any other app besides Pandora, that also takes a few tries before it will work. One more thing I would change is the view restrictions. The rest end of this vehicle comes up so high that at times it is difficult to see what I need to see out of my rear view mirror. These are minor details that I would change but overall I love this vehicle!
