Plagued with problems

2015 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Where to start? I bought this car as a CPO with 26,000 miles. Now has 42,000 and of course no warranty any longer. Cruise control: when disengaging the cruise using the steering wheel controls the car will sometimes downshift two gears causing the rpms to spike until the car finally upshifts. Sunroof: sometimes will not close above 65/70 mph, will start to close and then open back up. Dealer solution: don’t drive over 65... Climate controls: sometimes the fan won’t come on. Nothing. The only thing that seems to correct it is to flick the knob on and off as fast as you can until it eventually works. Road noise: car is noisy, probably due to it having no insulation in the rear and the empty holes in the rear deck where speakers normally would be. I added matting and it helped a little. Backup camera: sometimes won’t shut off when going forward, will stay on for a couple feet to a couple hundred. Paint: bubbles at fuel door area. Bluetooth: sometimes after you end a call the screen puts up and stays up the “transfer call” tab until you disconnect the Bluetooth on your phone. Radio: screen will occasionally lock up. Steering wheel controls won’t work either. This may last a few seconds to a few mins, more than once it took restarting the car to get the radio to work again. Fuel mileage: 27mpg on trips is the best I can accomplish. Alternator was replaced at 40,000 miles along with the auto start battery in the trunk. Car started making a single click noise when applying the brakes today, sounds like an a-arm bushing already. Now that cooler weather is back I now get to deal with the irritating “Ice Possible” warning at 39 degrees... I hate this car! I currently own four GM vehicles and this will be the last one I purchase, poor quality!

Buy it for all of its amazing features, comfort, colors and reliability.

2015 Chevrolet Malibu

I love my Malibu, the only issue with it is that the auto stop sometimes does not work, other than that it runs smooth, the seats are really comfortable. I have never had an issue with the car starting or running. When we go on long trips I never have to worry about having a sore back because the seats are the most comfortable out of all the cars that I have owned. The seats are made of a very soft leather and have lumbar support that seems making trips a breeze. I take the car in every three months to change the oil and at least once a year to rotate the tires this seems to help keep the car up and running and making it one of the most reliable cars on the market. It has a am/FM/CD player, Bluetooth, heat, air conditioning, it gets between twenty five-thirty highway miles to the gallon. It's a four door with seating for five people. Comes in ten amazing exterior colors and four interior colors. It has more airbags than any car that I have ever seen front, side back knee, ten in total, a security system, remote keyless entry, tracker system, brake assistant, abs and driveline traction control, four-wheel abs brakes, rear child safety locks, abs, manual adjustable front head restraints, standard transmission, powertrain, suspension handling, a great warranty. Power locks and power windows. I cannot say enough about my Chevy Malibu it is just one of the best cars that I have purchased.

2015 Chevy Malibu ltz. Sunroof, auto start, luxury detailed interior.

2015 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

I have had my 2015 Malibu two months now. The main thing that drew my eye to it is the champagne color and the shape. It looks clean and like a luxury vehicle. The seating has cloth in the middle with leather on the outside. The design on the interior has great detail, faux wood grain, ice blue lights under the center screen that responds to adjusting the sound. Other features that are great are 2 slots next to the cup holders that fit your cell phone or wallet. For the vehicle to be a 2015 if really has all the features of a newer vehicle, Bluetooth, touchscreen display, steering wheel controls, auto start, eco fuel, sun roof. The only missing feature I would have preferred is a keyless entry and start. I definitely recommend if you are looking for a feature filled budget friendly vehicles.
