2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS 3.5 Ecotec V6 from North America
Continuing the pleasant experience of the Chevy Malibu!
The signal lights keep malfunctioning, and I believe it is a computer issue.
The cruise control will set, however I can't accelerate using the cruise control button.
This is a BIG improvement from the previous generation of the Malibu. It is visually appealing (though the huge chrome bar in the grille should be smaller), and intuitive.
Just like the old Malibu's, it features a V6 engine, however this car isn't as "sporty" as the last one. In my 01 Malibu, when I hit it, it sounded like it, and I like the sound of a revving engine. This model however, when you hit it you hear absolutely nothing, though I guess I shouldn't complain. It has smooth gear transitions, and has a lot of power.
The electric system is still iffy, since I sometimes have problems with my remote started not working properly, and the aforementioned cruise control issue, and signal lights. Other than that it's sound.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
