2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Though the Maxx (looking at it as a sedan)is not the best looking in its class, the versatility can't be beat. Very comfortable and easy to drive, exceptionally quiet for a Chevy, almost as much room as a midsize SUV (how often do we really haul stuff?), and better mileage than same. My commute is 40 min. one way. The LT gives you enough creature comforts (that, and saving $10,000) to pacify those of us who almost went to the next level and bought that Maxima....almost.

Best Features

Remote start is awesome on freezing mornings. You start the car from the house before you put your shoes on. When you get out to the car the rear and front windows are defrosted, and the car is starting to warm inside. You hit the seat heat and you're off. In summertime, the A/C kicks on.

Worst Features

Front end isn't pretty, I call them "bugeye" headlights. Rear hatch is a pain, you have to push EXACTLY in the middle to get it to latch...and not gently.
