2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We've waited 3 years to get one of these and thus far am very happy with it. It has lots of zip, is comfortable and best of all feels very natural and at home on the road. I really appreciate the versatility of cargo/seating area. We've experimented with hauling various things and for a car this size, we consider it a real viable alternative to an SUV (for better fuel economy) as well as being a fun car to drive. It especially handles well on corners and with the traction control should be very reliable in inclement weather. Best of all we appreciate the high safety rating (with side air bags). I feel well protected when driving. This one is a long term keeper!
Versatility of the cargo/seating arrangement (back seat folds down as well as moves back and forth, leaving plenty of adult leg room and head room in the back). Lots of pickup!! The powered sunroof adds oodles to the fun
OnStar should be available on ALL GM vehicles. I have it on my 2002 Silverado LT.
