2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Overview

Other than some extra airbags and cosmetic changes, not much changed for the Chevy Malibu Maxx in 2005. This extended midsize sedan comes in 3 trims. All 3 have 4 doors, seat 5, and sport a 3.5 L, 200 hp V6 engine with 4 speed automatic transmission.

Gas mileage comes out to 22 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. All 3 trims have front wheel drive. Passenger volume comes out to 106 cubic feet and cargo volume comes out to 22.8 cubic feet.

Overall, drivers like the hatchback configuration, capable V6 powertrain, safety features, and rear seats that you can adjust. The critics point to the Malibu Maxx's subpar interior, and rough steering and braking. However, for the most part, the Malibu Maxx maintains a decent reputation as a capable sedan-wagon mix with an impressive list of features.
