"I used to think malibu's were underpowered, and just all around not good cars. After owning my Malibu Maxx, I've since changed my opinion. The engine is fantastic. It accelerates immediately, and is very quiet. It has the usual comforts, like heat, and ac. The front seats are heated on bottom, and lower back area. The speakers are also very nice for stock speakers. I've honestly never owned a better vehicle."
