Not too great
By Arnold on
2005 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
I had this car for three years. Fuel consumption is great, all controls are good location. Smooth ride. Steering control and braking is excellent. Visibilty is great. Stereo doesnt have aux input and hard or cannot be upgraded. engine are noisy. I sent the car several times to the dealership for steering problem, cd drive running continously, small area paint peeling off under 2 front door and at the luggage door. Within two years under 12000 miles, they had replaced the lower ball joint and lower arm assembly due to clunking noise in the front suspension when it hit a bump even though that I drive it carefully.
Good fuel economy, braking performance is excellent, it saves me from hitting another car in front of me.
Reliability should be improved, they should stick to the older design that work perfecly.
