Default Chevy Malibu....

Looking at a replacement for the recently totaled Nissan Xterra [HERE]

Chevy has come a long way IMHO. I have a 2011 Hoe and have been VERY happy with it in every area.

I looked at the late model Nissan Altimas, Maximas and the Chevy Impala as well as the Malibu. I'm gonna' stick to local. Found a real neat 2011 as well as a 2012 [used] LTZ Chevy Malibu both fully loaded with just under 40K for the 11' and 28K for the 12'.

Anybody have one in the household?

Any feedback would be appreciated?

I need to buy one this week.

Cheers

I don't have an 11 or 12 but I did just buy a 13 Malibu LTZ with 7k miles on it. Let me say the 13 Malibu is very nice.

Rated at 22/34 we are pulling an average of 29.

Solid built machines.

Thanks Arth.

I drove the 11' I mentioned last night and really liked everything about it. Actually drove way better than I imagined.

Very impressed but reliability is my main concern as it will be for my daughter.

Just going to say every chevy my family has had was a great vehicle. We had a late 90's malibu it was great. I personally had a s10 it was the best vehicle I've had, sold it to buy the ram and I know the guy who bought it it's still running great(nearly 300k miles).

A friend of mine had the 2011 V6 fully loaded, AMAZING car. Cadillac like ride, plenty of power, looks good, and he got 26mpg driving it like a moron. Even the stock stereo sounded great!

The car was totaled by a toyota truck 3 weeks ago...

I have no personal knowledge of the newish Malibu's, but I wish like hell I'd never sold my '79.....

There are a lot of the Bu's on the road around here, so I'd say that for the most part they're decent vehicles.

good luck and be sure to post some pics when you get one
