The Chevy Malibu Is Meh, But The 4G LTE Was Fantastic

Look, I'm not going to write a whole review just to trash a car. The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu, despite vast improvements from previous models, still has a long way to go.

The New Chevy Malibu Tries To Cheat Darwin, Will Text For You

Lawmakers are still trying to do everything possible to stop people texting while driving. It's proving an uphill battle to break people of the habit, though, and cars are now being equipped with technology to let you keep texting with both hands on the wheel.

Tarantino's Stolen 'Pulp Fiction' Malibu Recovered After 19 Years

In Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega has a speech he likes to give about why you never fuck with another man's vehicle. "It's just against the rules," he says.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Turbo: The Jalopnik Review

The new Chevrolet Malibu Turbo is interesting mostly because of the "turbo" part of the name. But not for the reasons you'd think. When most of us think of "turbo" we still think of it in terms of fast and sporty, since that's what we grew up with. If a car was turbocharged in the 80s, then it was a sports car that… » 10/12/12 10:30am 10/12/12 10:30am

What Car Is Unexpectedly Hard To Find?

Certainly it comes as a shock to no one that there aren't many Pre-A Porsche 356s sitting in barns and finding an old Gullwing or 250 GT is a nearly impossible task even if somehow you actually have the money to pay for one. Sometimes it isn't just the most rare and sought after cars that can be tough to find though. » 4/28/12 5:00pm 4/28/12 5:00pm

One more new Malibu for you

Although the embargo on the 2013 Chevy Malibu doesn't lift until Monday night's Shanghai and pre-New York Auto Show web reveal, there's more shots leaking out of the General's sieve-like media site.

LeMons Torture Test Results: GM G Body

They may be heroes at the drag strip or the dirt track, but the good ol' midsize 80s GM rear-driver is just too big and the small-block Chevrolet engine just too overheat-prone to hold together well in LeMons. Notable exceptions have been the Malibu that came in second at Altamont '08 and the Monte Carlo that finished… » 1/17/10 10:00pm 1/17/10 10:00pm

2008 Chevy Malibu, Transformed, Rolling Out...As A Chinese Police Car

Sure, the 2008 Chevy Malibu's selling better than the last model, but it's still an orgasm of mid-size mediocrity like everything else in the class of cars that include the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and the Ford Fusion.
