Our week in Florida was made comfortable and easy to get around because we were driving a 2012 Chevy Malibu.

This car was really nice to drive. It had leather seats and fit five of us comfortably. We even fit luggage for five people in the trunk without too much effort, so it’s the perfect size for a family. The sunroof was great for the beautiful Florida weather, as was the air conditioning. I like that we could set the actual temperature we wanted it to be inside, rather than just turn on the air.

I also like that all three back seats had shoulder belts. It made me feel like the kids were properly fastened in and comfortable. Griffin was in a booster seat and there was still enough room for everyone.

The Malibu had all of the perks like heated seats if we needed them, cruise control, power windows and locks, power seat adjust and one of my favourite perks….OnStar. We didn’t need OnStar during our week in the Malibu, but I appreciate that it was there if we did need it. From the first time I experienced OnStar (in my father-in-law’s car several years ago) I have wanted a vehicle with this service.

The One and Only, OnStar

OnStar is the in-vehicle safety and security system created to help protect you and your family on the road. OnStar’s innovative three-button system offers:

  • 24-hour access to expertly trained, caring Advisors
  • A connection to emergency assistance
  • Access to OnStar Hands-Free Calling

The radio and temperature was easily controlled with large easy to find buttons. There were also controls on the radio that made things easy for the driver to control. One of the best things about the Malibu was the fuel economy. We did a lot of driving in Florida. We spent approximately an hour or more on the highways every day, and we only had to fill the tank once during the week. That is amazing for the amount of driving we did! My old van would have cost us a fortune in gas for that much driving. Overall, it is a comfortable and classy car that we were privileged to drive for the week. It was sad to give it back at the end of the week!

  1. Wow! They have really changed it up! The Malibu looks great! I love the shoulder belts all in the back, extra security! Lucky lady, you got to drive a sexy car for a week!

  2. Sweet! I own a chevy cruze and it’s roomy and so comfy. The onstar is fabulous and I think everyone should have them. Chevy has certainly improved over the years.

  3. I had the joy of driving one of these bad boys in September, the 2013 model and I fell in love too! They really have improved their Malibu line. I got just over 900kms on a tank of gas which was just amazing. What did you think of the Florida drivers?! They drive me NUTS! Signals anyone?!?!

    Hope you guys had a blast in Florida. It’s chilly down here now. Actually in pants and socks today it is so cold!
