The Malibu is a comfortable and quiet midsized sedan, with a cushy ride. Handling is sound, but gets soggy at its limits. In our tests the punchy 2.0-liter turbo got 24 mpg overall; the Eco mild-hybrid 29 mpg overall; and th 2.5-liter four-cylinder got 26 mpg. The well-finshed interior has simple controls, and trunk room is sufficient. But the back seat is cramped.

Malibu is a winner...the American Auto Industry is BACK! by Topcat on 05/23/2012. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO 1SA, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The high quality of the ride and how extremely quiet the vehicle is, especially at highway speeds which makes listening to the radio much more pleasurable as well as making hands free phone calls with the Malibus Bluetooth system very clear. I was able to squeeze 39 MPG on a long highway trip! Very comfortable seats both front and back.I LOVE this car.
Cons: Wow, very little to dislike if anything. Because it is the Eco model, a small section of the trunk is used for the battery ventilation cutting down on trunk space just a bit.
Overall review: Overall I would say the 2013 Malibu in regards to overall quality of design and materials, comfort, features, performance and fuel economy is ABSOLUTELY one of the best values on the road. I could say it feels like it rides like a Cadillac, VERY solid.
