2013 LS first drive

I had a 2013 LS loaner for a few days while my 2010 was in the shop. This was the first time I have driven the new car. I really liked it! It seemed to have alot more room in the front seat area. I am 6' 4" and I could stretch my legs out all the way. The extra width was nice as well.

As much as I like it I have mine half way paid for. I dont want to start the payments all over again. I only have 30,000mi so it should last me a while. I also paid for an extended warranty from the dealer.

Re: 2013 LS first drive

I’m glad to read your positive feedback on the 2013 Malibu, velocity5!

I can see your point of view on keeping the 2010 Malibu for a while longer.

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.

Re: 2013 LS first drive

I did notice the lack of rear leg room. It doesnt bother me because only my wife and I ride in the car. Our rear seat only gets used for items that wont fit through the narrow trunk opening. As long as I have leg and head room up front with decent trunk space I'm happy.

Re: 2013 LS first drive

Have they made it any easier to replace the headlight bulbs on the new model without having to remove the whole front end?
