Car Displayed: 2016 Chevrolet Malibu LT 1.5L 4 Cyl. Turbo

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu LT is a tougher car to maintain than other similar models. In order to access the headlight on one side, you will have to remove the engine air filter first. This is an unusual step that requires multiple tools, making this repair much more difficult than other models. To replace the tail lights, you will have to remove multiple fasteners, a lining, and some bolts in order to remove the housing. This is a more complicated procedure than usual. Accessing the battery requires removing a cover first. This is a pretty difficult cover to remove, and requires some previous knowledge in order to complete.

Not everything is difficult. Setting up the Bluetooth is pretty straightforward compared to other models. On most vehicles this process can be very complicated. The oil drain plug is easily accessible beneath the vehicle making an oil change a much easier procedure to complete. Checking the oil level is easier as the oil dipstick is conveniently located in the engine bay. Other models from this era only use an electronic oil check, which is not as easy as just checking the dipstick.
