2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Review
This car is built relatively well. The body seems to be substantial and fit is good for the price. The car drives adequately well, but that's about it. Many driving characteristics are fair at best. Handling lacks feel for the road and the car seems to levitate/drift at upper highway speeds. Acceleration is a bit sluggish yet. Braking feels very "all or none." On the inside, the seats are okay--a bit wobbly as you shake them but OK. The sound system is decent but defintiely not great. Controls are a bit tougher to reach than would be ideal. Still it seems to hold together. Relatively smart looking instrument panel. Not a bad car for the price, but definitely not extraordinary.
Favorite Features
The build really seems pretty solid. Doors close crisply. Car holds up well over bumps without rattles or squeaks. Priced nicely. Long list of available upgrades.
Suggested Improvements
Tilt center console controls in a bit so they are more easily reached. Refining some of the driving characteristics would make it a car which would instill more driving confidence.
