- Looks more then it is, awesome build quality, good handling
- Poor Fuel Economy
Purchased As New
Overall an awesome car had it for a year now but the gas is really poor and mines a 4 cyl really really poor in the city. Overall I'm impressed with the 20k I spent on it, I only have 5.5k miles on it and bought it in May 2012, the build quality is nice but I am currently on the fence about the engine quality it has alot of power for a 4cyl yet the engine may not last 200k miles like my old impala I dunno we'll find out, it does have an amazing amount of power getting up to 140MPH is easy on the freeway. Another negative thing is the auto drive mode is alil slow at shifting.
The biggest negative is insanely poor gas millage in the city, very unimpressed alil mad because fuel economy is what I bought it for, imo they should have put in a small electric motor for city driving, its real bad my 2002 chevy impala V8 302hp got around 23 mpg in the city yet this 2012 malibu V4 162 gets around 17mpg in the city, lower the tires to 50 instead of 55 for better handling and yet that will make city go down abit. Although on the freeway it can get 40-50mpg but I live in the city so.....
