Laura, I Believe Your “New” Malibu Has A 5 Year / 100,000 Mile Drive-Train Warranty.
Which are you having ? Is it an acceleration problem ? A MPG problem ? Both ?
Do you have a local dealer ? I’d find a dealer and ask the sales department if they have a similarly equipped 09 Malibu 4 cyl (2.4L ?) demo or used car that yoy could drive. Compare. Be sure it has the same engine and transmission as your’s.
If your car isn’t cutting the mustard then head for the service department, explain what you learned and have it checked out under the provisions of the car’s warranty.
