Terrible Transmission

I like everything about this car except the transmission. It shifts hard all the time, even when not pushed to the limit. The shifts also happen slowly. Almost like someone is manually shifting making accelerating slow. Then I feel the need to floor it just so the cars behind me don’t get upset. I took 2 stars off because the transmission is noticeably bad.

good/but bad

I would recommend them any car that you want to go through CarMax to get but when I bought my Chevy Malibu I received it with a crack in the window and multiple cuts and scratches on the car that were not repaired And the battery has went dead and I had to replace it within a month of owning it or more.


  • Reliability: I like it and I like the reliability asked.

Good price for low mileage and shape

This is the first smaller car we have owned, we have had vans and trucks and one grand am years ago. I am 6'2 and have back problems so getting in and out is a challenge but doable. The ride is very comfortable and gets good mileage.
