2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

The Chevy Malibu is a super comfortable sedan with ample passenger space and engine power, especially when equipped with this optional 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The transmission however, is another story. When called upon, the six-speed automatic takes what seems like forever to downshift, especially at highway speeds, leaving the driver anxiously waiting to accelerate.

The interior of the Malibu is just fine; the dark-brown-on-khaki leather seats are quite attractive in this two-tone color combination and offer great support. The radio interface is simple and easy to use, and I particularly like the navigation syst -- oh wait, it doesn't have one; and even worse, it's not even an option! All navigation is done via OnStar, which is fine unless you like to virtually see the route you're about to take.
