2014 Malibu Owner Reviews (1)
Having owned this car for nearly two years, I am quite pleased with the performance and value of my 2014 Chevrolet Malibu LS. Even though it is a base car, it does come with lots of air bags and abs and delivers a smooth ride and good gasoline mileage. The front seats are particularly comfortable. The back seats are a bit tight for taller passengers. I added factory remote start from the dealer at only $275. The engine is a 4 cylinder normally aspirated engine which delivers good power throughout the power range with a 6-speed smooth shifting automatic transmission. With my GM Credit Card Points and Factory Rebates at the time of purchase, I was able to get the price down to less than competing models. I like the On Star for telephone and driving directions and systems monitoring reports as well as emergency assistance in case of a collision. Higher line models of the 2014 had as options some safety features such as backup rear view vision camera, lane departure, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. These features are becoming more widely available on future models cars and I look forward to getting them on my next car purchase. A turbo engine was also available, but here again only on higher line model Malibus. Personally, I am very satisfied with the powerful 4-cyclinder normally aspirated engine which makes plenty of power and the smooth 6-speed automatic transmission which combine for good gasoline mileage. The Malibu will is being redesigned for the 2016 model year and will offer only the turbo engine.
