This car has been incredible for the money. It rides great, has very good gas mileage. Average 27 city and highway. I have the LTZ so it's loaded with goodies. I shopped for a Honda Accord before I bought this car. Once I test drove it I was sold. Yes the Accord may hold value better. But for the money it's so much more quieter, and more comfortable. I would like a better stereo, it says Bose but the sound isn't the greatest. Trunk opening could be larger. But all the rest make up the difference of whats wrong. Test drive a Malibu and I think you will agree.
Great buy gas mileage at 32.5 hi way very sporty looking best used car I ever bought
I bought my Malibu LTZ in June 2011. I traded in my 2008 toyota sienna. I fell in love with the 2tone interior!! I was a little skeptical buying a Chevy, since all of my previous cars were Toyota (4 to be exact), but I am glad that I did! I have a V6, and this baby moves!!! It is a very fun car to drive. The Bose sound system is also a bonus! Others have complained about the noisy blinker, but it doesnt really bother me, although it can be loud in a quiet car. The cup holder situation is not ideal, but if this is my only complaint...I think I picked a winner!! Overall, great car....I am no longer a Toyota person!!
The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu is one of the most fuel-efficient midsize cars in North America and remains comfortable, stylish, and fun. The Malibu is a great choice for families looking for a commuter vehicle with room for the kids.
The Malibu was first introduced in 1964 as a trim level of the Chevrolet Chevelle. It was given its own model line in 1978, coinciding with the end of the Chevelle's production. Chevrolet produced the Malibu through four generations, ending production in 1983, but was revived it in 1997.
The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu excels in its economical commutes and polite roadside manner. The standard Malibu engine is remarkably fuel efficient, clocking 22 mpg in cities and 33 mpg on highways. At the cost of fuel efficiency, a more performance-oriented engine is offered as an optional upgrade on higher trims. No matter the engine choice, the Malibu feels easy to control - even on broken pavement. It's an excellent ride, with strengths in balanced handling, precise turning, and quieting noise. Additionally, its dashboard is simple and useful.
The 2010 Chevy Malibu is quite a comfortable ride. It's ideal for long commutes or road trips because of how quiet, fuel efficient, and comfortable the car is. The overall driving experience depends on the engine, but both the four-cylinder and the V6 options have sufficient power for any trips you might take.
The mid-size sedan segment is cluttered; however, the Malibu is still quite popular. As one of the leaders of its car segment, the Malibu is seen on the roads almost as often as the Honda Accord or the Honda Civic. When compared to the two rivals, it may be difficult to choose which is best - they're all so similar that it comes down to personal preference. Similar cars include the Mazda 6, the Ford Fusion, and the Nissan Altima. For this model year, a test drive of the Malibu's rivals may help you choose.
The Malibu was mostly unchanged for 2010. Chevrolet designed the five-seat Malibu with a few different trim levels:
Each trim level gains additional features aimed at adding more convenient features to the Malibu. Standard equipment includes keyless entry, automatic headlights, a six-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth connectivity. The 1LT and 1LTZ models will have either a four-cylinder engine or a V6 engine.
When shopping for a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu, there are two very different engine options across trim levels: the standard four-cylinder or the performance-oriented V6 engine. The 2.4L four-cylinder engine has decent horsepower and torque, but there's a dramatic performance boost in those two metrics with the V6 engine on higher trim levels. In contrast, the standard engine option is much more fuel efficient than its counterpart. Personal preference or commute time may help inform which engine is best. Both engine options are mated to six-speed automatic transmissions for all trims. A manual transmission is not offered. All models are front-wheel drive sedans.
The Chevrolet Malibu is stylish. In terms of body styling and appearance, the standard Malibu outclasses other midsize sedans. Inside the Malibu, you'll find the car is well suited to a family. The Malibu's interior becomes increasingly luxurious for higher trim levels.
