2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Gets awesome fuel economy. Going 55mph on a flat highway, after the car was already warmed up, I was getting 38-41 mpg. I get 31.8 doing low 70's on hihgway w/ moderate inclines. About 26 with regular suburban driving. I think the car has so much power GM probably could have emphasized fuel economy even more. I think GM was smart to make this engine a pushrod style, simpler, more fuel-efficient and more reliable than DOHC.

Favorite Features

AWESEOME Crash Tests; simlpe pushrod engine, with no belts or complicate moving parts; Much better than expected fuel efficiency; Great bump handling, Sturdy build; Hatchback

Suggested Improvements

Could have a sportier ride/sportier seats, (they should make a G6-MAXX for those who want a sporty hatchback). Where's the Stabilitrack, Why make such an amazingly safe car and leave out this wonderful safety feature?
