2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I have owned the car new since Feb. 2004. Have very few mechanical issues and have loved everything about it. Very comfortable road car and great power for a 6 cyl. MPG has been great, take it on road trips often and the AVG. MPG is almost 31 in and out of town (I don't reset the avg very often. Actually tried buying another new one two years ago but for some reason GM doesn't build them any more. Great family vehicle for the kids, and with the hatch and fold down seats (front and rear) turns into a "truck" when I need one. Only issue I have had is with the electronic steering (Saab) and have had it repaired.
Ride, comfort, 31 MPG, versatility to convert into a "truck" with the hatch and fold down seats. Rear passengers love the rear glass roof.
