2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my Maxx last July, and now have over 8,000 miles on it. Every bit as good today as it was driving it home the first time. Great gas mileage, versatile, comfy, reliable. Bought this car to use as a "van" at the World's Longest Yard Sale in Tennessee last year, and it didn't disappoint. There's acres of room for storing and moving, which has come in handy again and again. But I like it because it's a "lady's car". You don't have to jump or climb to get in or out of it. It's got more room than many SUV's, but drives like a lady's car... plus has a ton of great features.
Capacity allowed with back cargo tray, drop-down adjustable seats, heated seats, remote start, GAS MILEAGE!, interior "feel"-- everything is in easy reach with loads of info available on panel. Other features that I can use, but don't right now, are nice to have.
Gotta do something about those back window shades on the sun roof panels. They snap open at odd times and scare the heck out of you!
