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


No question, the Maxx gets great mileage (I average 29 mpg). And I love that the back and front passenger seats fold down to give lots of cargo room. And it's fun to drive -- when it's not in the shop for repairs. There have been several electrical problems while still under warranty, all easily resolved. The real problem is the steering rack. It's been replaced 3 times. My Chevy dealer says it's a design flaw and many cars come in with this problem. If you want a trouble-free car, I'd stay away from the Maxx.

Best Features

Lots of interior room. gas mileage.

Worst Features

Design a steering rack that works. Fit and finish is kind of cheap.
