SANTA ANA, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedan equipped with four-door passive entry makes life a little easier for those Orange County area drivers frantically searching for keys in the bottom of a deep purse or fumbling to find them when carrying a child or bags of groceries.

Chevrolet placed small buttons on all four doors allowing the driver to unlock the door with one press and all four doors and the trunk with two presses, a brand new option at Guaranty Chevrolet in Santa Ana.

The new feature is available on the Camero inspired Malibu LTZ and will be available on other models for 2014. Four-door passive entry is a common feature on most luxury and import vehicles, but scarce on cars in the midsize segment. Using Malibu’s closed-loop wireless communication system, the car verifies that the proper key fob is within acceptable range – about three feet – and allows the driver to unlock the vehicle. Pressing a button on the door handle – as opposed to automatically unlocking the door upon approaching the car – offered better and safer functionality as each key fob is uniquely mated to its vehicle, so there is practically no chance of false unlocks.

“Orange County area Malibu owners are all about convenience and functionality,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet. “Chevrolet’s brand new passive entry technology will definitely make everyday use of their vehicles easier.”

The 2013 Malibu is Chevrolet’s first global midsize sedan and is sold in nearly 100 countries on six continents. It is the first 2013 midsize car to earn a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA and a 2013 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.

The Malibu has three powertrains, available for Orange County area drivers, including the Malibu Eco, which uses fuel-saving eAssist™ technology to enable EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 city / 37 highway. Malibu also offers a fuel-efficient and powerful Ecotec 2.5L four-cylinder engine and an Ecotec 2.0L turbo that makes 259 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
