          My view on the 2018 Malibu

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I purchased this car in September of 2018 and it is now June of 2019 so while I haven't had the car a full year I haven't had any issues with it. I love the comfort of the leather seats and the gas mileage is wonderful! Even as a parent you would love the room this car comes with. The back seat is plenty big enough for your passengers to be comfortable and even for a car seat. The trunk also has plenty of room! My model has the moonroof so that is a added bonus. It comes with OnStar so you always feel safe! The technology and display screen is also top of the line. You can Bluetooth your phone to the car and never have to touch it which is added security and safety.

          - Emily F

          led headlights, Wi-Fi in the car, moonroof. Automatic auto stop

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I love this car. It drives smooth the features are great. Free Wifi backup camera. I don't like the auto stop there is no button to stop this from happening. It's very reliable so far with no issues at all. I would like it to have tinted windows. It's very comfortable lots of room for my 3 kids to fit. The touchscreen is so clear and nice to use. I love the applecare all my info shows up on the touchscreen and I don't have to type anything to text.

          - Jennifer S

          Sleek and Smooth Chevy Malibu

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Performance is great, except an issue where the turbo will bog down if the gas is pressed to hard. Very sleek and comfortable. The Apple CarPlay is wonder for text and drive, phone calls. Incredibly reliable, a good winter driving car. Press to start and keyless entry are a huge plus. Also, the key fob app is nice in the winter to start the car while at work so it gets warm.

          - Kayla B

          My 2018 Chevy Malibu lt is the best car I have ever owned.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I absolutely love this car. My favorite thing is that you can unlock the door without having to get out your keys you can just have it in your pocket or in your purse and the door will open for you. But it will only open your driver side door. To open the other door you will have to get out your keys and unlock it or push the unlock button in the car.

          - Olivia L

          Try a new Chevy Malibu. Do yourself a favor and give it a Spin.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Sleek lines make this a very good looking car, very sporty looking. Comfortable seating roomy back seat and quite comfortable. I just love this car driving it makes me happy. Quite good on gas and is very zippy. This car makes me feel good when I drive it and I look forward to taking it out for a spin. It has a quite roomy trunk.

          - Diane B

          Malibu the best car for a family of 4 people.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          It is a very comfortable and safe car. I consider it economical and it requires low maintenance. Meets my needs and my family very well. I am married and have a couple of children. The trunk is spacious and I can carry everything. I have long used various brands of rental cars. I am sure you have chosen the best.

          - Rodrigo R

          Great features, reliable, dependable

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I really like that there is a gas saving feature while the car is in park. I also like that I have access to OnStar and can use my Bluetooth to talk without holding my phone. It's a pretty reliable car and I get pretty good gas mileage. I like that I can also start the car with my phone when my key is not accessible.

          - Minnie B

          My experience with the 2018 Chevy Malibu. Pros and Cons.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Really enjoy driving this car. Very good gas mileage and low maintenance. Comfortable interior. Easy to navigate touchscreen. And, though there aren't any rear deck speakers, the stereo sounds good. However, Turbo lag often causes slow take-off and road noise is a lot louder than to be expected at highway speed.

          - Reggie F

          2018 Malibu 1.5 turbo lt trim.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Excellent mileage (approx 34 mpg). Like the auto start-stop features, slick look, and panoramic sunroof. Only drawbacks are if you let off the brake at the same time to auto stop feature kicks in, it can really shutter then engine. Be committed to either full stops or rolling through or turn off the feature.

          - Aaron R

          Smooth ride, ac on the back, love the front lights

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Love my car, very comfortable, smooth ride, lots of room in the back for my kids. Love the color from the interior and exterior. The only thing that I have a slight problem is that it has auto stop, other than that I love it! Like that it has sunroof as well. And also ac in the back, definitely a plus!

          - Sandra S

          Sporty, yet great on gas mileage.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Not overwhelming on horsepower, but an overall great riding car. Very fuel efficient... which is the main reason I brought it. Also very stylish. The interior seems sturdy. I have 2 boys so this is a major plus for me. I purchased the LT package with blacked out wheels and spoiler. Nice touch.

          - Paula B

          A fun summer car with a lot of technological bells and whistles.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I love this car in the summer. It's sporty and 'zippy'. It's terrible driving on Wisconsin winter roads and despite great gas mileage I tend to need to fill it up often because it has a small gas tank. I love the bells and whistles and the sunroof extends towards the back of the car.

          - Char K

          Heater and defroster issues.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          Heater blows too much in your face and not enough in the back seat. The vents are not placed correctly to keep the hot air on the windshield and out of your face. More hot air needs to be delivered to the back seat when on the feet option. Gm needs to look into this matter.

          - Victoria P

          Why the Chevy Malibu lt is the perfect car.

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          The 2018 Chevy Malibu lt, is by far one of the most amazing cars I have ever owned. The gas mileage is one of the biggest perks, the only issue I have with the vehicle itself is that it does not noise sensors when in reverse. The back up camera on the other hand is amazing.

          - Madison A

          Black, small 4 door, black rims and red coloring

          2018 Chevrolet Malibu LT

          I like it but wish it was a little bigger from the inside. I feel really low in it. But Chevrolet make is awesome. I would recommend this car. I also love my rims, I get a lot of compliments on them. They are all black and it goes well with my whole car.

          - Tati A

          2018 Chevy Malibu, comfortable, reliable, nice big screen, enormous sunroof.
