Default 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.

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.

Michelle, Chevrolet Customer Service

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.

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