2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Verry good car It's really good on gas I love it I really recommend this vehicle to everybody it's one of the best cars I've ever had wouldn't ever trade it


The best car I have ever had.

I have had my 2005 Malibu since 2006. It truly is the best car I have had. She gets around in snow better than my husband's truck.


One of best mid size sedans ever made!

Reliable, drives like a sports car, economic. Had some recall issues, Chevy took care of them in time. Exllt transportation and gas milage and great lasting body paint


Smooth Ride

This car is smooth and fast. My gas mileage is great. The stereo system is on point. I have never had any issues with this car. I love that it tells you the life of your oil, if your coolant is low, etc. It glides over the road and you would never realize your speed. This car looks nice without a hefty price tag.


Best bange for buck!

This car met all of my needs when purchased. Cold AC unit, good engine and nice paint job. Plus with the work I put into it as far as new tires, brakes, and battery the car is perfectly fine to drive.


hiho silver

I recently sold my 2005 malibu ls.I had it over seven years and about 85000 miles.It was reliable good gas mileage powerful good handling and driving.It was very cheap to own and maintain.I think it was under rated.It was safe in winter driving and had a lot of features for the year.I think it was a great car and so did my wife as I bought it for her orginally.She lover it and so did I.I later bought her a 2004 malibu maxx lt and she and I liked that one even better.When I sold it it still ran great and I have heard from her Grandfather that she loves it and it has been trouble free like it was for us.


I like it, but....

Bought it new 1/2005. Love the V6, trunk and interior sizes. But, it has had many repair issues over the years. Some small, some not so small. I can't remember them all. Should have made a list before this review. Has about 65000 miles on it now, basically it's our 2nd car. One thing, floor the gas pedal from a standing start and it will spin the front wheels. Good engine!


Reliable car

Such a reliable car Great body style Roomy Large trunk Feel very save Ok on gas Just keep it maintance and it will last.


Worst car EVER!

Bought this car used with 107,000 miles. At 122,000 miles the transmission quit. Sweet looking car, sporty. I have decided after this experience to purchase Nissan or Toyota in the future. Bought this because it was "American". Not impressed...devastating actually. Check out how many recalls.
