    Vehicle Safety Rating

    The 2013 Chevy Malibu and the 2013 Ford Fusion both have a NHTSA Overall Vehicle Safety Score of 5-Stars, but their scores are not identical. While both scored 5-Stars in their Front-Crash tests and 4-Stars in their Rollover Safety tests, in its Side-Crash test the Chevy Malibu scored 5-Stars –one star better than the Ford Fusion.

    What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the NHTSA only awards 5-Stars to cars they believe have proven their exceptional safety features, one star can make a huge difference. Though the Ford Fusion still has a stellar vehicle safety rating, the 2013 Chevy Malibu’s safety rating is just better with that one extra star to give you peace-of-mind.

     

    Warranty Coverage

    While both vehicles feature the same warranty programs, the 2013 Chevy Malibu’s warranties last longer, with the exception of the 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty which both vehicle have. The Chevy Malibu’s PowerTrain Limited Warranty takes you further than the Ford Fusion… 40,000 miles further, to be exact! Additionally, both vehicles feature a Roadside Assistance Program.

    • Flat Tire Change – A spare will be installed for you.

     

     

    • Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be delivered to get you back on the road.

     

     

    • Emergency Towing – Your car will be towed to its nearest dealer.

     

     

    • Jump-Starts – If you need your car jump-started, you will be assisted whether at home or on the road.

     

     

    While both vehicles come with this program, the 2013 Chevy Malibu’s program outlasts the Ford Fusion’s 40,000 miles! This makes the Chevy Malibu the clear winner in warranty coverage in side-by-side comparison and exemplifies Chevy’s continually exceptional reliability and dedication to you.
