I tried the LS cloth, LT2 Ultralux, and LTZ leather seats...all of them were uncomfortable. Too little padding. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2007 Chevrolet Malibu

2007 Chevrolet Malibu Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 252-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Top-tier GM 24 valve DOHC 3.6l V6 combined with 6 speed automatic transmission (including sporty paddle shifters on the steering wheel) has LOTS of torque across the range, excellent acceleration, yet ability to operate at low RPMs for high fuel economy. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2008 4dr Sedan 252-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Rated hp / torque numbers can be misleading- the car performs better than the power to weight would suggest. Yet, the gearing with the 6spd is set up well for allowing good fuel economy without discouraging spirited driving when called for. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

2007 4dr Hatch 217-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Lots of passing power and good fuel economy. Transmision shifts very smoothly and does not hunt for gears when cruising. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2007 4dr Sedan 217-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The 2007 Malibu has stronger acceleration. Throttle response is smooth and instantaneous. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2006 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Gets up to speed very fast; can usually beat most any normal car plus Mustangs at the traffic light. Daily driver with some pep. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2006 4dr Hatch 240-horsepower 3.9L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The 3.9L engine has tremendouse power (for a V6) and pulls strongly throughout its RPM range. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and very quickly, always in the right gear. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2007 Chevrolet Malibu Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 252-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
4-banger lacks power and seems to get consistently less than EPA ratings. The V6 engine is a beast but it has a widespread shuddering problem at ~1.5K RPM. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2007 4dr Sedan 145-horsepower 2.2L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Really fairly good for a 4 banger but it growls a bit when gaining speed. The shifts are noticeable mainly due to gear noise. (We compare it against our 99 V8 Buick which is faultless in this respect.) see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2007 4dr Sedan 145-horsepower 2.2L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The 2.2L 4cyl engine, while great for gas mileage, is underpowered for such a large car. It's fine once I'm at cruising speed; however, I wish it worked a little better accelerating. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
