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. Sort of like a nicotine patch for texting while driving. » 10/09/13 12:22pm 10/09/13 12:22pm

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. That quote became absurdly ironic after the car John Travolta drives in that movie — a 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu — was stolen in real life 19 years ago. » 4/27/13 1:26pm 4/27/13 1:26pm

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 had the … » 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. The latest — of a blue 'bu's uninspiring smiling face — gets the Shanghai skyline in the background. Ooh, how pretty! » 4/16/11 12:50pm 4/16/11 12:50pm

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

24 Hours Of LeMons Texas Gator-O-Rama 2009 Über Gallery: The Americans

2008 Chevy Malibu Refuses to be Ignored, Tops J.D. Power Initial…

The Car You Knew America Could Build (but wish they would have about 15 years ago) has just added another trophy to its collection. The 2008 Chevy Malibu received top honors in the mid-size car category of this year's J.D. Power (and his various associates') Initial Quality Survey, beating out the fugly Mitsubishi… » 6/05/08 10:20am 6/05/08 10:20am

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. Sure, the Nissan Maxima may be somewhat sporty, but nobody's going to confuse it with a GT-R… » 6/02/08 9:20am 6/02/08 9:20am

KBB Names Ten Best New Road Trip Vehicles, Family Truckster…

There's no set definition of what is and what isn't a road trip. Do you have to cross state lines? Is there a minimum mileage? Should it be measured in years? We don't have answers to these questions and neither do the people at Kelly Blue Book who put together an interesting mix of vehicles to meet the task, ranging… » 5/20/08 10:00am 5/20/08 10:00am

1971 Chevrolet Malibu

We've only seen a couple of Chevelles so far on this series (a '68 coupe and a '69 wagon). Oh, sure, we wouldn't argue with anyone who made the case that the '72 El Camino is technically a Chevelle, but in any case the classic '64-'72 Chevy A-bodies have been scarce here, especially considering how many were made.… » 2/20/08 9:20am 2/20/08 9:20am

2008 Chevy Malibu Ad Campaign Also Wants To Show You How To Rob A Bank



After first showing us the serious problem America has with blind joggers, the ad mavens for the General are now using the ad campaign for the new 2008 Chevy Malibu to show us the proper way to rob a bank. Apparently it has something to do with using a late 90's Oldsmobile as your getaway car — and — we're not really … » 10/17/07 8:00pm 10/17/07 8:00pm
