Pros: the way it drives

for economy car am very pleased with performance
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: Cabin NoiseGood handling and not a bad ride considering it's size. The savings make up for the size of the car. Seems to have a lot of road noise in cabin. I am sure the insulation package is minimal Really do like the car, Noisy only at Highway speeds which is not the bulk of my driving..

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).
Cons: manual windowsGood basic transportation
