#176 of 179 43,000 mile update on fuel economy on my 2005 Malibu (new style)
Nov 29, 2006 (11:38 am)
Well, I have been posting occasionally blurbing about my 2005 Malibu Base I bought in Nov 2004. It has the 4 cylinder and the window sticker said 25 city, 35 highway. I also have seen where many websites list best fuel economy cars but the Malibu was not on there. I wonder why, look at these stats. I just completed a trip from Gulf Shores Alabama (where I am temp. living) to Buffalo NY, about a 1175 mile trip one way. I just got back and averaged 33.7 mpg the whole trip, that is highway and city. About 100 miles from destination back in Alabama, I logged a record 39.9 mpg travelling above 70 mph much of the time. So that means my 2005 Chevy Malibu got 39.9 mpg! I could not beleive how far I went one one tank of gas, and how nice my car was. I also enjoy the replacement Bridgestone Turanza's I put on. They are the best water tire and make the car very quiet. Most people think I have a 6 cylinder.

Wow. No posts in here in years. I just traded my 09 Corolla in (good riddance) for a 2010 Malibu LT-1. A Beautiful ride! Beautiful looking too. Very classy.
$1000 offer for trading in my recalled Toyota and $3000 in additional offers, which helped with how upside down I was in the Corolla loan.

#179 of 179 2010 Chevrolet Malibu

Recently I purchased a new 2010 Malibu 4 cylinder LTZ. This is one of two primary vehicles that I own, (the other being a 2007 Toyota Camry.) ---- Since 1997, I have only purchased Honda Vehicles, because of a "very negative quality experience" with a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and a dealer and manufacturer that did not want to perform powertrain warranty work. (The front end would "HUM" at 55 mph like an "old rear end with 100,000 miles.")
I am VERY satisfied with the quality of the 2010 Malibu. (The "fit and finish" and the performance of the vehicle is simply outstanding.) ------- This vehicle is a "home run" for Chevrolet & General Motors. ------- It is about time that GM manufactured a vehicle as good as a Honda Accord! ------- In about 1 1/2 years, I will be looking to replace my Camry and based on this positive experience, I will be looking at the Chevrolet Malibu, the Chevrolet Impala & the Camry. ----- I would like to see the Impala with a 6 speed automatic transmission. (The Malibu & Camry already has a 6 speed automatic transmission.) ----- GM needs to catch up with the technology!
My dealer for both the Camry and the Malibu is outstanding in terms of service. They treat me in a very professional manner. (Both dealers handle all of my service!)
Best regards to all. ---------------- Dwayne
