2007 Chevrolet Malibu review and picture

Ah, the Chevrolet Malibu. Even though its name suggests things that you would think would be stylish, like California and Barbie, the 2007 Chevrolet Malibu doesn’t have a lot to offer appearance wise. Its exterior design is one that you will quickly get bored looking at, and it probably isn’t the sort of car that you would proudly display to someone declaring its astounding beauty. It isn’t so much fun to drive either, but that doesn’t mean the 2007 Chevrolet Malibu is all bad. It comes at a pretty good price, doesn’t cost too much to fill up, and performs well with both of the engine options offered.

Driving this car might not be exciting, but you can’t say it isn’t comfortable. The 3.5 liter V6 engine gives it a boost of power and performs well and sucks up very little gas compared to other cars in its class. There’s plenty of room in this spacious vehicle to fit passengers and anything else that you want to carry around, and you don’t have to worry much about safety, because the Malibu did well in all of the crash tests. It also comes with the fun remote start option.

Still, not only is the exterior boring, but so is the interior. Considering that is the part you’ll be looking at all the time, it can become mind draining staring at the same dull material to and from work or school everyday. The steering is only slightly responsive, and the same goes for the brakes. Things like stability control and manual gearbox, standard for other cars of its class, don’t come with it. Also compared to other cars, the four cylinder engine the Malibu offers has a little power, but just not enough.

In the 2007 model year, the Chevrolet Malibu has a few additions. One of these is the dual stage invention that is fit into the front airbags. What this does is make it possible to measure the punch that the air bags give as they come out to the severeness of the collision, so if you only get in a minor bump you don’t have to risk a neck injury from the power of your air bag. Also offered is the variable camshift timing added to the V6 engine option, which improves its power and performance, and an OnStar navigation system with turn by turn directions.

Cheers,
