Incredably roomy rear seat
Pros: roomy rear
Cons: sun-visorsAll the seats slide backward and forward. Even when moved toward each other there is still more legroom than most other cars. Bad: sun-visors, automatic lights(outside), front seat is uncomfortable, computer controlled systems sometimes slow. Good: power and drive responsiveness, stability, cruise control, sound system. automatic lights(inside). Rear hatch- lots of room in the back.
Pros: Fit and finish.
Cons: Small trunk opening.You get alot for you money with the LTZ . Excellent comfort, styling, fit and finish, power, and handling.
Best by far over previous models
Pros: Standard Turn-by-turn navigation is outstanding.
Cons: After six months, I have ound none.This year they removed the point protruding from the door pillar that would gouge tall persons getting in the front seats leaving a big black and blue spot on their thigh. The car gives a quiet and smooth ride. Mileage is great.
Cons: Fit of some body panels.It is a much better car than I expected. It does everything well and some things very good indeed.
an outstanding car
Pros: gas milage, engine performane
Cons: radio equipmentthis 2003 Chevy Malibu ia a great performer, with very good milage,average comfort, excellent engine workout and good suspension system.
Pros: smooth driving
Cons: the trunkI can't understand why everything is made well on the 2009 Malibu except for the trunk. I hate the opening. It is very hard to maniver putting things in like suitcases etc. It is chopped off. I didn't realize that when I bought it. They need to change that. I haven't checked the 2010 trunk. Otherwise I like the interior design and the way it drives.
