We've towed a 2009 Malibu for 25,000 miles with no problems. The 2011 is essentially the same vehicle. Remco says that either the 4 or 6 cyl models can be towed 4-down. We installed a "fuse switch" to avoid having to remove an awkward to access fuse each time we towed. We've had no tire wear issues.
We have the 4 cyl LTZ model with the 6 speed transmission with paddle shifters. The car is fun to drive despite the relatively small engine. The 18" tires make for a good handling vehicle, although the Goodyear tires that came on it were awful.
The best thing I can say for the car is that it is very easy to maintain. Compared to some of the more exotic cars I've owned that I used to dread taking in for service, this one has been reliable and inexpensive to maintain. Another nice feature is that there's a Chevy dealer pretty much anywhere you go in the US, so help is just around the corner, literally.
