2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
After six months of owning the Maxx I am very satisfied with my decision to buy it instead of a Camray or Accord. The car performs great and is getting great all around gas mileage (26mpg). Plus I know I spent $4-6k less than I would have at a Toyota or Honda dealer (I know I lose some of that in resale but that is down the road, the savings were now).
I really like the performance of the engine, the utility of the hatchback design and the comfort of the interior. I use the remote start option all of the time as well.
Interior, Interior, Interior - when will Chevy (for that matter, all US car manufactors) learn that a few extra dollars spent on the interior really make a difference. Just small upgrades to the knobs, instruments and interior finish would pay big dividends.
