2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I will have to say I am a huge truck guy, but when I got a job in outside sales it was time to lay the truck to rest. The gas mileage on this car is great, average @ 26 mpg. The ride is very good and the 200 hp v6 is amazing. The first week I after I bought it we had to make a trip to Detroit about 1000 miles round trip. I am 6'1 and my father in law is 6'3 and we both had plenty of room in the front seats not to mention my sleepy wife and daughter in the back was very comfortable also.
The very racey V6. Sky lights in the back give a nice roomy feature and the gas mileage is unbeatable. The driver information center is very helpful also.
Maybe if the back skylights would at least pop up other than that if you're looking at this car buy it!
