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


I bought the Malibu because I average around 20,000 miles per year and wanted a car that can hold four 6' plus adults comfortably and do it getting great gas mileage. I used to drive a S-10 Blazer and with high gas prices I wanted something more economical. The Malibu LT gets better gas mileage than anything in it's class, very reasonable priced and has remote start which my wife loves. Overall I am very happy with the car and would buy it again.

Best Features

* Engine has more power than magazine reports would have you to believe. My other car is a Corvette. * I have gotten up to 35.5 mph on hwy. Highway average is about 33 mph. Averages around 20 to 24 mph around town.

Worst Features

GM needs to give the car a little more solid feel. Plastic clips that hold front and rear fender wells and front and back bumper covers need to be re- engineered. Clips work loose and allow for movement.
