Shameless Self-promotion

2013 Chevy Malibu LT
Yet another tardy update for my blog. I'm going to blame it on having a busy life. It might also be from spending too much time watching entire seasons of TV shows on DVD with my family. Being too busy sounds better, so we'll go with that.

The car that you see above is Chevrolet's 2013 Malibu in LT trim. You can read my Wheels review of it here.

The gist of it is this: the last Malibu was a decent enough car*, and this one largely builds on that car's success. There are some problems though, not the least of which is a seemingly insignificant reduction in rear seat that occurs at a time when most of the Malibu's competitors are expanding that same dimension. It's also arguable that this generation's styling is nothing special, however changes have occurred for 2014 that help in that regard.

* (Keep an eye open for my future blog entry on one particular, very stupid shortcoming of the previous generation Malibu.)
