About Chevy Malibu

Throughout the years, the Malibu has been a GM's staple, providing Chevy with a go-to sedan that can do it all. Whether it was providing drivers with a classy full-size in the mid 1960s or a sporty answer for the more compact-conscious '70s and early '80s, the Chevy Malibu has a versatile pedigree. It has been a coupe, convertible, and even a wagon. But when it was brought back for the 1997 model year, the Malibu Chevy showed off better than ever. This time, the fifth-generation Malibu was offered as a four-door sedan only. It featured a 2.4L inline-four cylinder engine with an optional V6 directed through a four-speed automatic transmission, and a bold front-end grille took center-stage on the exterior. Initial sales were impressive with the model receiving substantial recognition from critics and fans alike. Awards came Chevy's way, with the Malibu being named Motor Trend's Car of the Year (1997).

Some minor changes were applied during the fifth-generation. In 1998, a sunroof and leather trim became options, while in 2000 the V6 engine got a boost in horsepower with a bunch of power-enhancing parts. Other user-friendly Chevy Malibu accessories and amenities, such as automatic headlights and an updated stereo, were also implemented for the next couple of years. 2004 welcomed in the sixth generation of the model. No longer just a sedan, the Malibu was also made available as a five-door wagon (dubbed the Malibu Maxx), holding the distinction of being Chevy's first hatchback in almost 20 years. It was outfitted with a 2.2L Ecotec inline-four cylinder engine for the base model. Higher trim levels LS and LT boasted a 3.5L V6 capable of 201 horsepower. The Maxx SS displayed a beefier 3.9L configuration (240 horsepower). Chevy upgraded the 3.5 engine with new parts for 2007, adding on an extra boost in HP. On the outside of the Malibu, the grille was wide and truck-like with a chrome bar running across. A couple years into the sixth generation, the grille was downsized but GM badges were put on the doors.

The seventh generation of the Chevy Malibu was introduced in 2008. It is available in four trim levels (base LS, 1LT, 2LT, and LTZ), and there is no longer such a model as the Maxx SS Malibu. It was dropped before the current generation debuted. All versions of the Malibu are front-wheel drive with power coming from either a 2.4L four-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6 that throws out up to 252 horsepower. Lower trim levels use a four-speed automatic while the more upscale V6 variants are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Plenty of accessories are included, even on the base LS. OnStar, side curtain airbags, traction control, and satellite radio all come in the list of standard Chevy Malibu parts. The seventh generation has displayed strong sales thus far, averaging close to 170,000 models sold over the first two years. More praise has come the Malibu's way, as well. It has been named a Consumer Guide Best Buy (2008, 2009) and also took home the prestigious North American Car of the Year award (2008).

The Chevy Malibu is that cruising midsize that sticks around and makes its case, street by street, mile by mile. Fashionably attired and always reliable, the Malibu makes promises that it consistently delivers on. Delightful handling and freeway-worthy performance is why this vehicle is still a newsworthy item, a trend that doesn't figure to end anytime soon. Designed for efficiency and known for style, the Malibu is as much art as it is substance, and is considered a generational favorite for many Chevy drivers.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
Installing a dash kit is not that difficult. It is in fact quite easy if you just observe a couple of key points. Most important of all is cleaning the surfaces destined for beautification.
