Nice car but...
By Dee on


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


This car had 8100 miles on it when we bought it in Dec. At first we had no problems but now it makes an awful noise on right side when hitting rough road or potholes. Definitely something wrong somewhere. Also a rattle in right front door (that just started). Otherwise, it's nice looking & fun to drive. Handles well on the freeway or in the city. I'm not sure at this point if I would recommend this car, & doubt if we will keep it over 3 years, if that long. We had a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix that rode better with no rattles, but it was getting too many mechanical problems. For the price we paid, this Malibu probably isn't a bad car.

Best Features

Love the stereo & sunroof. We like the way it handles, even on the freeway.

Worst Features

It's blah inside & seats aren't the most comfortable. Make adjustable seats for both sides, & more interior color contrasts as in the Ford Fusion or Hyundai Sonata.
