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


I have enjoyed my Malibu LS for a few reasons, starting with the gas mileage. I usually get around 26 mpg for a 400-mile trip. Acceleration is great. The engine is strong and smooth. Air and heat work well. Steering is great and cargo room is fine. The back seats are incredibly spacious, even though I sit quite a ways back in the driver seat. Rear moonroofs are fun, although the sliding screen easily snaps on people. My biggest complaint, and one that should be noted for anyone switching from SUV to wagon due to gas mileage, is that the Maxx's traction control is worth nothing, literally. My wife's Corolla does better in rain or snow. It was by far the biggest disappointment.
