. Chrome pig makes car very attractive.

The appearance is what attracted me to my car. Even though I am 71 years old I still like the sporty look. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat 4 people and being a 4-door makes me the driver often. The ride is that of a larger car in that it handles well in all weather and reduces impact from pot holes with it is suspension system. The only real problem I have is getting in and out but this should be remedied when I have my hip replaced. The ceiling clearance is a little low for my six foot tall friend. The rear view camera is ok but I still find myself doing all the moves checking the old way. The temperature adjustment is nice but not as good as in my friends Cadillac. All in all I like my car and plan on driving out to Colorado next summer.

I love all of the features of my Malibu!

I love my Chevy Malibu! It is very roomy so I do not have to worry about moving my seat back and forth constantly to accommodate for my backseat passengers. It also drives very smoothly. My ltz model has the eco option that allows me to save gas when I am stopped at a stoplight. I get around 30 mpg too, which is great for how roomy the car is. My leather seats are extremely comfortable too. I also have automatic start which is a lifesaver in the winter. The on star app makes this feature even better! I can lock/unlock, start, and set my horn off from anywhere! The combination of all of these features and the performance of my Malibu definitely has made me a loyal Chevrolet customer.

My pretty dark metallic gray baby lol.

I love my car. I often refer to it as my baby. I love the color. The gas mileage is wonderful. The only issue I have had lately is that it the information system keeps saying the fuel cap needs tightened. I replaced it and I still get it. I pay $256/month on my car. I super love the hands free phone feature. I think that the OnStar and internet capability are nice but I do not see myself paying for it plus my home internet. It would be nice to use the navigation display on the message display. This was one of my best options for a new car. I have two teens and a 18 month old and the back seat in my car is great. The trunk space is nice too.
