2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

So far the Malibu Max has been a good
car to drive. It seems to have quite
a bit of get up and go. The rear view
is not so great, but it will do. The
car rides good for a car. Priced right
with the discounts and easy to deal
with the dealership in my case as I
will not hassel over price and I did
not have to, which is one very good
reason I liked the deal!!! Hope the
car holds up well as I have not
purchase a new car for many years.


Best Features

Good over all so far: about 2000 miles on it now.


Worst Features

Rear vision is somewhat restricted!

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased our Malibu Maxx after
discovering it was a twin under the
skin with the Saab 9-3 and the Vauxhall
Vectra wagon, which we drove in the UK
on vacation. There are a lot of sneaky
neat features on this car, and while
not a top of the line Mercedes, it is
fun, manouverable, and a lot of car for
the money. Worth a look.


Best Features

Remote start, hatch releases. The sneaky little map pocket on the front of the driver's seat. Cargo cover. Auto- headlites which can be overridden.


Worst Features

Cloth seats could be a bit cushier, but they are comfy enough, even on road trips.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've driven my Malibu for 7,500 miles
now and if I could get out from under
it without taking a bath it would be
gone tomorrow.

I drive 120 miles daily and this is
the most uncomfortable car I have ever
owned. The seat bases are far too
short hitting me mid thigh and
causing pain in my legs after only 20
minutes of driving. The electric power
steering is a poor choice and needs
more boost at highway speeds. An hour
of driving and my hands are cramped.

The suspension works great in town but
on smooth blacktop it sets up a
harmonic vibration at 45-65 mph that
shakes the entire car...very poorly
designed.

Tranny does not shift into high
without letting off the gas.


Worst Features

Start over with a clean sheet of paper.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have always had either large
vehicles or sports cars , this vehicle
fits both of our needs and is fun to
drive. We did have a problem with the
head rests but all you have to do is
take them out and turn them around,
very comfortable and pretty fast


Best Features

Tilt, Power pedals , Cargo space and preety quick, reached 125 mph with no problem


Worst Features

better stereo and larger wheels

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle is a nice design with many
great features. The build quality is
suspect since it has numerous rattles
all over.


Best Features

Sliding rear seats. Hatchback design.


Worst Features

Build better. Most of us hate rattles, especially in a car on which we spent more than $25K.
