2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Change the seats and the steering and this would be an awesome and versitle family car. The driver's seat is very uncomfortable, and I have had four major steering repairs. The flexibility, leg room, and adaptability are the best I've seen on a car in a long time. I average 28 mpg overall in a large car with a 200 HP V6, which makes a family car economical and powerful enough to satisfy most people.
The adaptability and versitility make this very functional car. The Maxx has more leg room than my neighbor's Cadillac. The economy and power combination make for a nice car.
Revamp the steering, and greatly improve the seat comfort, and this would be a great car.
