Malibu is the best Car

Because Chevy overall has always made there vehicles reliable and affordable, gas mileage is awesome and keeping up on maintance is never an issue.I ended up with my Chevy because I reck my 2005 Chevy Malibu Maxx a few months back, due to bad weather.I already had my mind set on another Chevy,ended up with this one.....Love love love it.Highly recommend if your looking for a reliable car you will be driving every day.Love my XM radio and Onstar services.My last Malibu didn't have those features.Safety is a plus, my last Malibu was completely smashed head on into a building I walked away with a injuried elbow.

I won't recommend Car max in naples, fl

I bought the car in January think their would be no problems. Not even 12 hours later the transmission was slipping. Took it back to car max and they didn't help me with anything said it was out of their hands. I had to take it upon myself to call the Chevy dealer to help me. No one would ever call me back from car max or even tried to help me. Glad I spent the extra money on a warranty with you guys! You're real super at customer service!

Perfect family commuting car!

I wish someone had a bigger car and engine with the same gas mileage, at the same price; but since that's not an option out there this car is great! We can easily pack up our two boys and head out the door. It has been saving us so much on gas versus our van, and it runs great! Though snug we can even fit the third booster for my niece is the car. It is challenging to get strollers in and out of the trunk but it is doe able with our Chico single and Babytrend double. Love the extra touches of the two tone interior, makes the car feel so nice, and the lines of this year and so classic and beautiful. We are a family that is loving our Malibu!


  • Fuel Economy: We bought this car for the gas mileage abs it is definitely delivering the way it said it would online.
  • Styling: I love the interior. We are enjoying our two toned look. Great design yet keeping cost of car down!
  • Value: Over all we are pleased with what we got for the price we got it! It has been running so smoothly, it's saving us plenty in gas versus our van, and we can still fit a stroller luggage and three kids in it when needed!


  • Interior Space: Wish you could get the bigger car and engine for the same mpg and price; but no companies have that yet so we will survive!
