Fun to drive

by KathyF from Rockville, MD | July 02, 2020

This car is perfect for my needs, looks sporty and economical to operate. I couldn't be happier. My grandson loves it so much he keeps begging for me to give it to him. No chance.

2019 Premier 2LZ

by NathanJones from Dallas, TX | June 30, 2020

Purchased new last August (2019)...I went back and forth between choosing an LT vs Premier but ended up choosing the Premier because it had all the features I wanted, especially adaptive cruise control. Also, the exterior styling (including the '19 inch wheels) give the vehicle a more interesting appearance. I chose the color "Pacific Blue Metallic" which is beautiful (and only available on the '19 model) but exceptionally hard to keep clean. Sure, the Premier is fairly expensive but if you do your homework and are willing to "look elsewhere" you can make a good deal....my Premier stickered for over $36k but I was able to purchase it for just below $27k and the dealer was willing to negotiate. Besides the adaptive cruise control and a full host of safety tech I especially like the programmable dash controls (though I wish it had the boost gauge like the ones in Canada offer) and the "over the air" updates available on the tech side. "Alexa by Amazon" was recently added to my vehicle and was super easy to set up and use. The Premier's interior is nicer than the LT's with more leather covered surfaces and padding and all outboard seats including the rear seats are heated. Heated steering wheel...ventilated front seats are a great feature too. I find the interior design tasteful and muted (which I like) although I find the leather seats are only comfortable...not "super-comfortable". Large trunk that's nicely detailed with easy use pull handles to swing the back seat backs down for additional storage. I find visibility is good and with all the parking and tech assist features I've had no issues with seeing what's around me. 2.0T engine is quite peppy although it's only "recommended" I've been using Premium gas only so far, so it's something to consider especially WHEN (not if) gasoline prices head north. 9 speed automatic transmission has worked flawlessly and shifts are not even noticeable. My only real complaints are there isn't an interior trunk release button which I've found highly annoying. I have to either use the key fob or a hard to locate button on the back end of the vehicle to open the trunk. The front seat console lid feels exceptionally flimsy...although its upholstered in leather it feels like it's made of cardboard and has left me with impression that @ some point I'm going to open it and it's going to come apart in my hand. On the tech side, I've found the "automatic parking assist" useless and gimmicky. It's a neat feature to show people but in the real world I've yet to find a reason to use it. I'm not a fan of the "push to open" gas filler door either as I suspect over time my constant pushing is going to wear the paint and eventually form a dent. The filler door also feels super-cheap in movement and weight. Not a fan of the cap-less fuel intake either. That said, I'm very satisfied with my purchase of my 19 Malibu Premier 2LZ...zero mechanical issues to date. No recalls to date. I love the style and wish more folks would choose sedans over the CUV/SUV craze and Chevrolet would invest more into promoting their sedans (what's left of them). It's my understanding the 2023 model will be the last for the Malibu and I find that sad as it means it will probably be my last Chevrolet as I won't be forced into purchasing one of their CUV's or SUV's and I have absolutely no reason for purchasing a truck. Perhaps a Genesis or Hyundai is in my future? #savethesedans
