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


I was given this car as a rental while
my trusty VW Golf was in the shop.
This Chevy drives like a wet sponge.
The steering wheel turns as lightly as
a phone dial, but the way you turn it
doesn't have much in common with the
direction the car will go. Turn the
wheel a bit to the side and the car
will stoically go straight. According
to the manual it comes with a 200hp V6
engine. Those 200 horses have been
hidden well. When driving off from a
red light the 90hp Golf Diesel feels
livelier (and it gets you almost twice
as far on one tankload). In terms of
design, be informed that what looks
like cheap plastic is cheap plastic
indeed. The engineers must have slept
soundly the past decade.

Best Features

The radio. It shows more agility than the engine.

Worst Features

Glue the Chevy labels onto a Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or VW Passat.
