2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Pros: Great ride, handling, steering, comfort, feature-full, very well designed, Great engine, Innovative Maxx concept, great value. Did I mention rear space? Cons: moderate wind noise at high speeds; a somewhat vague feeling in steering and suspension(i love it now) There is no match in this price range. I simply love this car -- in fact, I drive the longer routes, so that I can spend more time in it. The car handles very well, the steering is easy (the variable assist electric steering gives you comfortable and easy control of the steering), ride is quick and very comfortable, the engine hardly makes any sound, car is VERY smooth, a joyous ride (try it once).
Very smooth and quiet ride; Comfortable & Spacious interior, very comfortable rear with sliding and reclining back seats; folding front seat; power adjustable pedals; lumbar support; manual transmission control; remote start; featured instrument panels; audio RDS; excellent crash ratings; mileage.
Velvetty seats, velvetty steering, audio-controls-on-steering-wheel, sliding cover of rear skyview panel instead of sliding. Believe me, there is very little you can add to this already marvellous car. This is dramatically better than the older Malibu
