Great College Vehicle

2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
The Malibu Maxx came out of no where while searching car lots, oddly enough it had every feature I wanted and for a very reasonable price. Don't believe the in-dash MPG rating, instead calculate it out yourself. I've found the computer is off by a large margin, including waiting at a light in the MPG calculation. I average (with city and highway) around 26-28 MPG. Great car for a college student like myself or a family just starting out.
Heated seats, plenty of pep, decent gas mileage, storage, traction control, sport-shifter, nice audio system, 5 year warranty, price.
MPG could be better, a slap-stick for the sport-shifter would be nice and an available AWD system would be excellent. Perhaps include HID lights stock as well.
