2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Here it is, one year and 30 thousand miles later. The car has performed flawlessly. I am surprized at the average 35 miles per gallon I get on the highway doing 65 Mph. Comfortable and quiet too. Lot's of pep from this adequate engine/weigth set. The negatives: The starter randomly sticks and and the car overcranks. The plastic housing on the passenger side front seat came loose. That's it. I am looking to buy a new one now.
The great fuel economy 25/35. All of the controls are easy to reach while driving.
Put a little grabber on the bottom of the rubber cup holders so they don't come loose with a large drink.
