Hybrid has great MPGs and good performance

I have the hybrid model and it is incredible on fuel efficiency. Backroads I can get over 50 mpg, interstate going 75 I get 38 mpg. Comfort of the leather seats is top notch and it's amazingly roomy. Great sunroof. Very responsive and fun to drive. Some items are less than optimal. Lane keep is average and could use improvements. Forward collision warning is very sensitive, even on its lowest level. Infotainment System also has been having problems with repeated shutdowns. Overall, incredible car I'd recommend to anyone.

It turns self off to save gas if I am in traffic or stopped at a stop light.

I love this car. The previous car I had was old, run down and constantly had issues so my 2017 Malibu was a breath of fresh air. I have only had one issue with it and I have had it for over a year now. The car wasn't reading that my car was in park which would result in my car refusing to turn off for about 5 minutes, then it would just turn off by itself. I ended up informing my dealership & they got it fixed for free under my warranty which was greatly appreciated. Besides that, I love this car!

The 2017 Chevy Malibu will keep you in style with an affordable luxury.

We haven't really experienced any real problems just yet with our vehicle. We have about 60, 000 miles on our car so far and it is still running smoothly to date. The design of the interior is very clean and comfortable. The outer look of the body is very sporty and desirable especially for young people. Technology is up to date and very reliable. The controls are easy to find and understand. Overall the car is a good buy is you're looking for a car with good gas mileage for your family.
