Outstanding Mileage
By Dave on


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


While the quoted highway mileage is 30 mpg, I have on numerous trips achieved 36+ mpg on tanksfull of gas, even at interstate highway speeds, with the a/c on and through the mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky. Find that the handling is quite stable at low and high speeds and that the acceleration is available whenever it is needed. However, to achieve optimum mileage you need to drive with common sense and sanity. Heavy footed acceleration will decrease mileage by 2-4 mpg quite easily.

Best Features

Like the computer displays which allow me to monitor mileage, average speed and miles remaining on tank.

Worst Features

Rear seat bottoms to fold forward so seat backs can be layed flatter.
