    2014 Chevy Malibu LTZ

    Looks like we will be test driving a 2014 Chevy Malibu LTZ on Saturday (21 Nov). Leather seats and all. Anyone know of any car seat quirks with this car? See siggy. Any other thoughts? I want one with all the safety options, which may not be this one. Upgrading from 2006 Chevy HHR that has no side airbags. Thanks!

    ETA: It had a single previous owner, but that owner was a rental company in Florida. It has about 35k miles. Is its past as a rental car good, bad, neutral?

    My parents have a 2014 malibu ltz. It's a very nice car. We often have 3 car seats in the back- a radian ff and various booster seats. It's a tight squeeze getting the boosters buckled, but doable. I can't see your siggy...

    Re: 2014 Chevy Malibu LTZ

    We have a RF NextFit. It went in well with LATCH behind the passenger. I noticed the fifth anchor for a center position using the inner driver side anchor. I think using it would be annoying because of the bucketed side seats, though. I would use the seatbelt in the center. I was disappointed to discover Chevy still does not put center headrests in their cars. We liked it, but I decided to hold out until we can afford a new Subaru with eyesight. The adaptive cruise control alone is worth the wait for me!
