2008 Chevrolet Malibu Review
Introducing the 2009 Chevy Malibu: it’s the car your left brain and right foot can agree on. Styling is dominated by clean tailored lines and fluid curves. And the interior styling offers a harmonious flowing dual cockpit that surrounds you with a cast-skin upper instrument panel and door trim cues that signal refinement and attention to detail. The goal of outstanding driving dynamics is made real by two powerful DOHC engines a 112-inch wheelbase and StabiliTrak Stability Control that’s standard on LT and LTZ. A six-speed automatic transmission is included with the dual overhead cam V6 powertrain and available with the dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine. The Malibu is backed by the GM 100 000 mile/5-year Power train Limited Warranty. Adding to your driving experience is acoustic laminated glass that helps insulate you from road noise. You’ll find standard OnStar with a one-year Safe & Sound Plan and XM Satellite Radio on all trim levels. The 2009 Chevy Malibu! It’s where logic and emotion come to a meeting of the minds.
