2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This car will give you the most bang
for the buck when it comes down to
price and actual usfulness in a sedan.
It fit a full size lawnmower out of the
box without a problem with the rear
seats folded down. With the recling
and adjustable sliding rear seatsand
and a sunroof, the passengers in this
car will feel at home. The standard
200 HP engine has a great deal of power
and low end torque. The transmission
does seem to shift harder than it
should when a little extra gas is
given. Chevy delivers with a vehicle
that has the utility, versitilty, and
price to get the job done for the
person that wants the extra space in a
Hatchback with rear folding seats has
enough room to fit a lawnmower out of
the box. Rear seat reclines and slides
with standard sunroof. 200 HP engine
has good pickup. Many standard
features on this vehicle that the
competition doesn't have or even offer.
The sliding split sunroof covers for
the rear seat do not stay fastened
under regular driving conditions. GM
is aware and working on a fix. The
radio controls need a little more of a
quality feel to the touch. Needs a
standard locking gas cap.
