2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
The Maxx is simply a fantastic car. It gives you so much for so little money an in 4200 miles it has been totally reliable. The interior room, the hatchback, and all of the little features make the Maxx one of the most satisfying vehicles I have ever owned.
Remote start, power pedals, steering wheel radio controls, in dash 6 disk changer, trip info computer, easy ability to program so many personal choices, sliding and folding seats, fold flat front seat, ability to carry 9' sprinkler pipe without doors or windows having to be opened
I have gotten used to the electric steering, but it's still not perfect (I understand the 2005 version is better). Also, the stereo sound quality is not as good as that of the Accord (but better than many cars.)
