Black Maxx - Great car! It's what I didn't think
Pros: Driving positions (I am tall) and roadability. It really is an easy car to live with.
Cons: Gas mileage. Awful around town (13-14 mpg); highway (23-26). Got 30 mpg once but I really had to softshoe it. Also, I'd like a 24v engine and a manual trans with at least 5 forward spd and AWD would be nice.Between health and other problems, I got dropped into an uncomfortable position, financially. That improved somewhat when SSI retirement gave me an assist. I had rented Malibu Maxxes when I needed to travel and was quite impressed with their utility. A local Chevy dealer was going belly-up after about 4 or 5 decades. They had this black SS which caught my attention. Long story short, after some discussion, I got it for 25K, 0%down, 0% interest. Been a long time since I had anything close to a new car; and this really wasn't brand new since it was '06 and I got it in '07. The next year ('08) they discontinued Maxx which is really a Saab with Chevy running gear. Car gets terrible mileage around town (big engine?!), but it is a dream to drive. Handles extraordinarily well, terrifically stable, comfortable inside, adaptable to any need. I believe Chev should have done a major blitz on Maxx. They did not. I got 28+ mpg when I rented the regular Maxx (on the highway at 70+ mph).
I feel like a star when I'm driving this car
Pros: 20 inch Polished aluminum rims.
Cons: Lack of interior lighting in the LT1 modelThis is by far the best Camaro ever built. GM is back! Ride and power is unbelievable... I have the 2011 Ice Silver LT1 RS V6 with 20 inch polished aluminum wheels; I can’t imagine what the V8 is like. The streaming blue tooth audio work beautifully with the Iphone, and I have an iPod shuffle plugged into the USB port. This car makes my heart beat fast every time I see it.
Pros: fun to drive
Cons: too smalloverall a fun car to drive with excellant mpg.
Great Commuter Car
Pros: OnStar phone hands free calling.
Cons: Drivers seat, wish it would go back more, I am very tall.I have had this 2010 Cobalt for 8 months and have had no problems. Gas mileage for combined city and highway is about 31 mpg. Handles great and so far grips well in slippery conditions. Better than most econboxes for the price.
Pros: low gas usage
Cons: that the car was sold at a very high pricethis is a great vehicile as an starter car for a student heading to college plenty of room easy on the pocket as for as gas on those trips home to visit relatives on holidays
best in its class & highly recomended
Pros: Remote start,gas milage,power to go,slide sunroof & rear moon roof.rear seat room & comfort.
Cons: rear seat area not very sound proof for outside noise.All owner useable comfort features e.g.(every thing you need) remarkable gas milage without sacrificing all the power one needs to get -n-go ( 3.5L,V6)
Pros: Drivers seat adjustment and lumbar support,w/ heat
Cons: Winter driving with this carMileage gets better when broken in. Initially barely 20 mpg hwy, now 22/23 mpg long road trip. Plan your passing carefully. Have had back surgery, if the drivers seat adjusts to my back I'm interested! GREAT driver comfort w/heated seat & lumbar system. Good leg room adjustment in back seat! Not the most comfortable ride in back though. Would like window and door control on door arm rest. Great looking vehicle makes you turn your head. I downsized for better mileage (didn't gain mpg) and sacrificed more cargo space then I had expected. Front wheel drive hydro-planes easily when pavement wet. Not my first front wheel drive vehicle, VERY disappointed during the winter. If you don't drive in snow, or on ice, this would be the car for you!
