2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Very pleased with highway mpg -- 34.6 at 70 mph. City mpg about what I expected, 22.0 mpg. Tight body, doors, etc., means quiet ride. Remote start feature is a pro in summer heat, and will be helpful in the winter, also. Handling is good, very responsive to demands on the road -- passing, entering freeway traffic, braking.
Remote start Power adjustable pedals Side curtain airbags
Move rear window controls (wipe, wash, defrost) to more accesible area on dash or console. Difficult to manage without taking eyes from the road -- UNSAFE.
