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


Bought used. Great car; haven't had any problems. Pick up is great. Feels more powerful than 200hp. Brakes feel strong with no fade and are easy to modulate. Steering is nice with little effort needed for parking lot speeds and tightens nicely as you pick up MPH. Handling is okay for a sedan. There is some body roll on faster turns but the car feels solid and I haven't heard any noises from the car that there shouldn't be. Needs better tires! It's not a sports car but it would handle better without any squealing if there was better rubber; however, the tires are good for absorbing rougher roads. Suspension helps isolate really well and the seats are comfortable. I definitely recommend it.

Best Features

Tilt & telescoping steering wheel Data information center Transmission and power; can't believe only 200hp Gas mileage.. have been averaging 26.1 city and around 30.8 highway; it's a V6 sedan... not bad at all Build quality seems good, interior materials feel better than what GM has used before

Worst Features

Seating positions seem limited More interior passenger room A piston type hinge for the trunk would be nice Better tires! Higher performance rubber please! I don't care if it's a sedan. Other than that... it's a very nice car.
