2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We purchased our new 05 Maxx in June of this year. We haven't been a GM customer for a number of years but after a lengthly test drive, we decided to come back to GM. So far we've traveled about 7,500 trouble free miles. Not one problem or complaint. On the highway, I've consistently averaged 33 MPG and around town in the mid 20's. I am absolutely pleased with the Quality, Handling, and Design of this car.
Rear Hatch, great utility with the fold down seats, adjustible rear shelf/table, etc. Well thought out interior design.
Not much. I am not a great fan of the large chrome stripe that runs through the front grille. Prefer the new "floating" bow tie on the 06 SS Maxx. Like I said, not much.
