GM’s Chevy Malibu and Buick LaCrosse Earn Spots On CPO Car Reliability List


Recommended Posts

In its latest compilation of great cars, J.D. Power (Hammer) liked the Chevy Malibu and Buick Lacrosse. Both were named to the list of Eight Most Reliable Certified Pre-Owned Cars. Together GM’s two cars made up a quarter of the top eight.


In its summary of the LaCrosse, the publication says, “Buick’s full-size LaCrosse sedan has plenty going for it, from a choice between a light-electrified hybrid drivetrain and a powerful V-6 engine to a roomy and comfortable cabin wrapped in upscale sheet metal.” Of the Malibu, the publication says, “In its final year before a complete redesign for 2016, the midsized 2015 Chevy Malibu offered real value along with, apparently, excellent reliability. Pair the torque-rich turbo with the top LTZ trim level and you’ll have a dependable and upscale rocket.” 

The list of eight was derived from J.D. Power’s dependability data, which comes directly from owners. This list is interesting because it looks at the dependability of 2015 model year cars that might be coming off of 36 or 39-month leases. As a CPO car, the vehicle will have a warranty and will have undergone an inspection.

The Malibu is a nice vehicle.  Only complaint is the auto-start from a stop thing.  That and it looks too similar to the Impala.
