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

Review

I was given this car as a rental while my trusty VW Golf was in the shop. This Chevy drives like a wet sponge. The steering wheel turns as lightly as a phone dial, but the way you turn it doesn't have much in common with the direction the car will go. Turn the wheel a bit to the side and the car will stoically go straight. According to the manual it comes with a 200hp V6 engine. Those 200 horses have been hidden well. When driving off from a red light the 90hp Golf Diesel feels livelier (and it gets you almost twice as far on one tankload). In terms of design, be informed that what looks like cheap plastic is cheap plastic indeed. The engineers must have slept soundly the past decade.

Favorite Features

The radio. It shows more agility than the engine.

Suggested Improvements

Glue the Chevy labels onto a Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or VW Passat.
