The Chevrolet Malibu is among the many Chevy cars that come with remote and keyless entry. With this technology, you can control your car's door locks, your trunk and your panic alarm from as far as a couple hundred feet away in the street or in a parking lot. Programming will take you only minutes from your driver's seat, and you will have the remote and the system transmitter ready to use right away.
