Good Value (with Employee Discount)
By Frank on
2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We went with the LS - 6 Cylinder, a much quieter engine, with good HP, and gets 32 MPG Highway. Body style is nice, reminds me of a Cadillac CTS. It's built on the Saab Epsilon chassis. Ride is kind of on the hard side, but still good. With the trade in, employee discount, and throwing GM Points at it, it came to $15,400 for the LS with the 1SB option. It's what it's worth!
Safety Feature with the 1SB Option, air bags all over the place. Good Crash Ratings. A 200 HP V6 that gets good mileage, and a much improved quieter ride. Comfortable. I congratulate GM, and Chevrolet, for the quality improvements. No Rattles..A Chevy feature not in this vehicle!
There is still some interior improvements that are needed. The back seat is kind of cheap. It's no Camry (I own two, and have been driving Toyota's since 1976), but it doesn't cost as much as a Camry either.
