2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I researched this vehicle extremely well. The European body styling really makes this car an eye catcher. People always stop and ask me what it is and compliment on the styling. The 3.5L V-6 engine makes for smooth, powerful ride. This car is very roomy and the back seats slide back, forth, and recline. Very cool! Definitely some great standard features. Great sound system. Standard rear moonroof, traction control, and power driver seat. This car is an all around good choice for persons of any age or family status.
Great body styling. Strong motor, smooth steering and shifting. Rear seats, hatchback storage, CD/Stereo system. Great MPG for a large car. I get 34-36 MPG on the highway and about 25 MPG in the roughest city driving conditions.
The interior is very boring. The cloth seats stain very easily. I only drink water and the condensation from the bottle caused "sweat" rings on the seat. They really messed up using that interior cloth.
