When it comes to infotainment systems, it contains some of the best equipment such as a large touch-screen display using Chevrolet's My Link, Pandora Internet Radio, USB cable, and an iPhone 4, 4S, or five connectivity, Sirius Travel Link.

The eighth-generation Malibu contains four-cylinder engines and six-speed automatic transmissions. There are different specifications of engines available for different geographical regions such as the Australian market has two trim levels: the CD and the CDX, with the 2.4 L Ecotec or 2.0 L diesel. The Middle East was equipped with the 2.4 L Ecotec engines, 3.0 L V6 engine that provides 260 hp and 290 NM.

Apart from all the technical features, this model is also equipped with some of the best safety features such as include dual-stage front airbags for the driver and front passenger, Roof rail airbags with rollover protection, knee airbags, second-row head/thorax side- impact airbags, a rearview camera system, lane departure warning system, and a forward collision alert system.

This was among those vehicles that provide overall features with minimal things to worry about. It was a hit for Chevrolet and that holds the crux of this brand.

Engine Compartment Fuses

The wiring circuits in the vehicle are protected from short circuits by fuses. This greatly reduces the chance of damage caused by electrical problems.

To check a fuse, look at the silver-colored band inside the fuse. If the band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be sure to replace a bad fuse with a new one of the identical size and rating. Fuses of the same amperage can be temporarily borrowed from another fuse location, if a fuse goes out. Replace the fuse as soon as possible.
