Malibu/Malibu Maxx

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Enlarge Photo
Based on General Motors' "Epsilon" global architecture (which is also the platform for the Saab 9-3) theMalibusedan and European-styled Malibu Maxx hatchback continue for 2005 with only minor updates. A redesigned rear spoiler and rear wiper are added to the Malibu Maxx LT, while front-side air bags are now standard on both the LS and LT versions and newly optional on the base model. A new Sport Appearance Package on the sedan includes body-color side moldings and alloy wheels. The sedan comes powered by either a standard 140-horsepower 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine or an optional 3.5-liter V-6 that delivers a more-pleasing 200 horses; the hatchback is only available with the V-6. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard. The Maxx's wheelbase is six inches longer than the sedan's to add cargo space, which measures in at an impressive 22.8 cubic feet. It also comes with a "Skylight" sunroof and an optional back-seat DVD entertainment system that's located in the center console.

Too low to the ground on the outside grill work. Less visibility than our 2002. Constantly bump our heads getting in and out of the car. I'm short and cannot get the driver's seat close enough to the pedals to... + More »

My experience with 2015 Malibu after 20k km's (or 13k miles) has been positive. I think this is a very under-appreciated car, particularly given the hype about 2016 model and current pricing. I actually love... + More »

This automobile is equal to ones worth three times the sale price. Malibu is a great looking car with unbelievable fuel mileage. The interior is expansive, and seats comfortable.

Averages 23 mpg. 36 is advertised and only possible if going down hill all day long. The brake assist that down shifts for you helps erode the mpg as well. try to coast when gaining on someone and you feel the... + More »
