76,000 Miles and Sweet Malibu Maxx
By dbadcraig on
Vehicle
2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Fleet 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Review
This is a car I did not care for much at first, but we needed another car and the price was right. Well, the car has really grown on me and I now love it. I am incredulous of the odometer reading, this car drives more like a car with 7,600 miles on it (not 76,000). The engine and transmission are wonderful, delivering a good +33 mpg on the highway. Not a drop of oil used. The ride/handling compromise is perfect for everyday use. The electric steering is different, but easy to get used to. Negatives: 1. noise (a "clunk") in the front end in low speed turns that appears to be a common characteristic of the electric steering, 2. the car's heater is slow to warm up the car on cold days.
Favorite Features
The information center that provides time, temperature, A & B trip, fuel economy, miles to empty, and oil change information. Interior room, cargo flexibility, telescoping steering. Quality of the fit and finish. Overall high level of comfort for long highway trips, quiet and easy to drive.
Suggested Improvements
GM discontinued the Maxx this year
