2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Unlike some of the critics, I like the feel and smoothness of the ride. I don't expect a Nascar ride, ie, not a lot of speed. It has enough pickup to get up to the speed laws. Got a good employee discount and better yet no hassling. It turns good at corners. So far, and too soon to tell, it has no mechanical problems. So I would recommend giving it a try. GM is not all that bad, foreign cars have their quirks. Gas mileage is as good as any car depending on driver's habits. Tires are good, but you may want better if you drive a lot in snow. Like the drivers hooked mat, keeps from moving around back of pedals.

Favorite Features

I like the interior seating fabric, roominess in front and back. The dashboard features, driver information guide, radio and speakers sound great. Also, getting in and out is easy with the floorboard a little higher than most sedans but not as high as a SUV. Outside lamps are classy. Trunk is roomy

Suggested Improvements

Would like the car just a little longer to give it more style like the older GM models. Foreign cars are too squared and short because their city streets are so narrow. Also,want more interior fabric colors, wider rear view mirror so you can correct the blind spots
