Overall a really good buy

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I really like my Chevrolet Malibu. If I were to say I had any downfall it would be the road noise. Depending upon what the road is constructed of dictates how loud it will be. Nothing turning up the radio a little does not fix. Everything else about my Chevrolet Malibu is great. The dash is very user friendly, the leather seats are really comfortable, and the fact that you can raise the seat to a comfortable level is the best. Overall a really good buy for the money.

My car will not need to be fixed on and on

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The Chevrolet Malibu 2017 care is really a lifesaver it will not easily need fix because Malibu is very strong car and I really love it and encourage everybody to buy it too. Another thing is that the car has a very elegant design and shape. It's very big in and out the seatings are very big and comfortable and the height of the car is excellent it comes with multiple color but Prefer black since it's very elegant color

The malibu. Car is a great car and a nice looking car.

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The best car we have ever had. Drives great and everything works. The air conditioning is cool. The inside is nice but a little hot in the summer. The car is black. It get great mileage and there is very little maintenance. Fits good in the garage along with our other car the trunk is large enough to put everything when we go shopping. The back seats go down if we need it to load something too big for the trunk.

In-car Wi-Fi and other great options!

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I love having the Bluetooth and in-car Wi-Fi features. It makes streaming music easier. You do not have to plug in a bunch of things to hear the music from your phone in the car. You can also get satellite radio., for a small monthly fee. You also have a nice sized radio screen which will show your map if you are using google maps. The car drives smoothly and the seats are comfortable.

Great looking car overall but needs more power or faster response time

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

Two years in and it seems that it doesn't have enough power or response how I want. It also seems to have transmission problems but dealer states that it just needs to be worn in. It is reliable and comfortable. I always get compliments about the trim of the car. I really want the same car but as V6 or turbo or something with more power.

Chevrolet Malibu comments.

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The Malibu is an excellent car. It gets very good gas mileage and is reliable. The ride is smooth and the Bluetooth feature is very handy, especially considering that it allows hands free use of my cell phone. The is also important in an emergency. There is excellent storage in the trunk. The back seat is roomy and comfortable.

- Dan M

It is an amazing car to drive!

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

Haven't had any problems. When I bought the car my dealer was generous and I got it for a steal of $17,000 and $289 a month. Features come with ac and heater and heated seats. Plus a Bluetooth phone hookup system. It has safety features that reminds you to look in the back seat and reminds you if you left the key in the car.

- Rachel L

I love almost everything about my car!

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I love that I have leather seat! Easy to clean! I love me heated seats although they don't have cooling sets for the hot weather! Gas mileage is amazing! The touch screen is very nice to have and the Bluetooth! It also has collision alert sometimes to goes off when a shadow Hits the sensor just right that gets annoying!

- Brooke G

The best part of the vehicle is its clean look and radio functions

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The vehicle will stall out on eco mode so you must put the vehicle in sport mode gear six. I do like the Bluetooth and the radio controls on the steering wheel. The car is terrible on gas unless you are on the highway. When in the with stop and go your looking at 17 miles a gallon if your lucky.

- Blake B

Comfort of my car. A great experience for me!

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The vehicle is very reliable and performance is excellent. There is no concern for breakdowns when I drive vehicle. It is truly pleasurable to navigate around town in this car. The interior is comfortable with plenty of space to remain comfortable. I recommended this vehicle to others.

- Pat W

The best car the Chevrolet has made

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

Great car! Good on mileage and fuel. The vehicle is very spacious and the trunk has a lot of room. I've taken it on multiple road trips driving over a thousand miles and have had no problems whatsoever. It updates you on any problem you may have going on such as needing a fuel change.

- Latina L

The Chevy Malibu is the total package!

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I love my Malibu! It gets great gas mileage, has minimal road noise and lots of legroom. The trunk holds a full load of groceries and more. It drives extremely smooth and is eco friendly. The Malibu has no major blind spots. It's high tech. And the back up camera is a life saver.

Some pros and cons of Chevy

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

The Chevrolet Malibu has a Good engine, and the interior is ok as far as comfort but still has room for improvement, the only/main issue is the lights even when I recently replace the bulbs and checking the fuse/wires headlights goes out. More suited for a small family

Car problems with the Chevrolet Malibu

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I have a lot of problems since day one. To many to mention. The shifter wouldn't disengage the shocks the electrical also. The tires after we left and brakes. I do love the color and the fact it is a Chevrolet product. I think it is a nice car but have had problems.

- Donna C

Super classy and Fun to drive

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

I have leased this vehicle for almost 3 years now. I have enjoyed driving it. I only had one incident where the car stalled at a light but the issue was fixed within a couple days and there haven't been any problems since. Its roomy n just looks like a classy car

- Pamela S

Love it, spacious and perfect for me

2017 Chevrolet Malibu L

Great on gas, mileage and very spacious. There is plenty safety features like a back up camera, blind spot mirror and Bluetooth. I can fit enough luggage for three to four people in my car. Very comfortable and smooth ride, my nieces and nephews love it
