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

Review

We replaced our 98 Malibu with this new Maxx. There is an impressive amount of car here for the money when combined with all the rebate. This car is very quiet, responsive and powerful. The construction of this car is much more solid then anything GM we have seen before. Our biggest complaint is some initialy quality issues. We had a squeaky lift gate (dealer has not fixed), and an innacurate gas gage (dealer fixed by replacing tank). I find the reviews including edmunds don't give enough credit to the power with great gas mileage on REGULAR fuel, with the cost of gas very important to us. There are a lot of good ideas in this car and amazing amount of technology.

Best Features

Hatchback opening and storeage space. The V6's power and economy. Corners confidently. Quiet and smooth at high speed. Sliding and reclining rear seat!

Worst Features

Overall build quality, initial problems should have been taken care of! Do not integrate stereo with car display system (no way to replace this stereo with aftermarket when it fails or you want an upgrade). Electric power steering does not offer right feedback, needs more work.
