Unfortunately we just wrecked out 06 Malibu Maxx but we loved it and plan on getting another one. Considering we ran into a semi head on we walked away with nothing more than a stiff neck. Very impressed by the car as a whole but the only thing is it's disapointing Chevy never offered all-wheel-drive and even more disappointing is that Malibu Maxx is no longer an option. Incredible car with incredible value. Buy one, but save one for me!

I was looking for a hatchback because I have 3 40-50lb dogs. I test drove a number of other vehicles including a Jeep Cherokee, Ford & Toyota... when I got behind the wheel of the Malibu & started driving, I just got that feeling, that "this is it!" feeling.. my old car was a '99 Grand Am, & I got tired of the slow acceleration of the 4 cyl... the Maxx has the acceleration, and the space for the 3 dogs... the part leather seats are good with the hair, all I have to do is open the windows & sunroof & it blows out... It's rated for 24 hwy, but I've been getting 26, it doesn't compare to the 30+ mpg's of some, but it has the get up & go when I need it... I hope it does as well in winter as good as the summer. the only thing is the low profile tires, you can feel a lot of the bumps on the road

I own a Saab 9-3 aero, I went on vacation and rented a Malibu Maxx LT version. I fell in love with this car. I know I font own one, but I did rent it for 3 weeks. Spacious, functional, Hatchback! I love the hatchback, I just wish Saab made the 900s again. We went golfing easliy placed 3 golf bags in the back. I am thinking of trading my 9-3 in for the Maxx.

Great for Short People

Our Maxx has the adjustable brake and gas pedals and my short wife loves it. She feels much safer with the air bag on, now. It's such a simple feature, but a needed one for short folks. Compared to the Subaru Outback and the Honda CR-V, it rode better than the CR-V, and handled better than both. Rear window visibility is not great, but otherwise it is our choice for car of the year! Go Maxxxxxxxx!

Satisfied new owner

We are normally "Chrysler People" and were looking to replace our recently wrecked P/T Cruiser. By chance, a local salesman talked us into driving the MAXX. We went to eat supper and compare the 2005 MAXX side-by-side to a 2007 P/T. The MAXX won in all categories except # of miles on the vehicle. We called to buy the MAXX, but it had been sold 10 minutes after we left the lot, so our salesman searched for us and found the 2007 MAXX with fewer miles and a lighter shade of gray. This car does exactly what the salesman said it would do. The on-board computer system does adjust to how an individual drives it. In a two week period, it has gone from 24 MPG to over 30 MPG and climbing. Hot Rod this car around town and you only get mileage in the low 20's (plus garage bills). Drive it sweet and it is sweet to you. My wife drives 35 miles each direction to work (70+ total). She feels safer and is loving her new car, especially the heated seats. Remote start will be a great "plus" this Summer to give the car a chance to cool down before she gets in to drive home.

I rented this car for 1 month while my vehicle was being repaired and decided to purchase for my daughter who is in college. It's perfect for the right person. I had my 3 children in it and although the back seats are excellent (they recline and slide back and forward) it was still a very tight squeeze. The trunk cover gives you twice the cargo space and the cargo net is a great addition. The kids also love the rear sunroof (although it doesn' t open) Traveling alone was great! Which is why I said it's perfect for the right person. I had ample room, the handing was fierce!! and it even signals you when you need an oil change or when the traction is low. You can adjust the everything by use of the menu key and it even offers daytime running lamps that you can turn on or off. This car isn't for me, but my daughter fell in love with it and since she's young and single - it's a good buy for her. I see the asking price ranges from 18-23K and I paid nowhere near that amount nor do I think it's worth that much money. Oh and it's so so so fast, having a V6 engine, so be prepared to come out of your pocket with gas. This Malibu burns more gas than my 2005 SUV.
