I own an '05 Malibu Maxx Hatchbox, I get fabulous gas mileage in this car. My last trip to New Orleans from Fort Worth Texas, I filled up with 15 gallons of premium gas (I fill up with premium all the time) my Malibu averaged 37.6 mpg. I saw a Mercedes commercial. If I were to buy a 50,000 e class diesel you can get 37 mpg, well let me tell you one thing ( my Malibu didn't cost me half that and I'm getting more than what their 50,000 car does on mpg. Well back to what I was typing, I filled up once on my trip to N.O. and still had nearly 200 plus miles to go! This car packs the punches at the red lights and haul's (you know what) on the highway when I'm being a bad boy.
I love the DIC, skylights even though I don't sit in the back seats. The sound system is better than the sound system in my partners 05 Taurus that's fully loaded. The best feature of course is the 3.5 litre V-6.
Can we get the engine that's in the SS Malibu as an option?
