Does a 2009 Chevy Malibu have Bluetooth?

I’m thinking about buying a used car through a private party sale, but the current owner isn’t sure if it has Bluetooth or not. Does the 2009 Chevy Malibu have Bluetooth?

Whether or not the Chevy Malibu you’re looking at has Bluetooth depends on its trim level. Not every 2009 Malibu was equipped with Bluetooth.
If the 2009 Malibu is a 1LT, it might have Bluetooth capability, if the original buyer chose to add it as an option. If you’re getting a 2LT or LTZ, Bluetooth came standard. Bluetooth was not available on the LS trim.
If you’re not sure of the trim level, or the vehicle is a 1LT and you don’t know if it came equipped with Bluetooth, your best option is to ask the current owner if you can attempt pairing your phone to it before you buy. This will tell you definitively if the car has Bluetooth capability, and if it works.
