Anyone have Experience '16 or '17 Malibu with 1.5 lt engine?
How can such a small engine have so much power and smoothness in such a big car?
I drove it about 1600 km, mostly on the highway, some pretty heavy snow conditions, some at 120 km/hr, and bit of driving in heavy Vancouver traffic and I came away averaging 8 lt/100 km.
That engine is the same size as what's in my Honda Fit. It's also smaller than what's in my motorcycle! And yet it felt smooth when accelerating on the highway. I think I only used the turbo once and it was quiet and reasonably powerful.
Do any of you have a Malibu with that engine? Anyone with high kms, 100,000 or more?
