2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Review
We've had our Maxx for 14 months and 14,000 miles. It has exceeded my high expectations. The car is well- designed and, except for its truck front grill (an example of what's wrong, and who should be fired, at GM), well-styled. The build quality is excellent --- proof that GM autoworkers in Kansas are as good as those working in Japanese-brand plants in other parts of the USA. If this car had a Honda or Toyota badge, it would probably be the best-selling passenger car in the USA. Of course, we don't know how it will stack up against a used 2004 Accord or Camry in five years. So far, it looks like it can compete with them on TCO.
Favorite Features
Load carrying capacity, reat seat head and leg room, >30mpg at ~70mph on regular gas, has been reliable, lots of well-designed small storage places, adjustable pedals
Suggested Improvements
Front headrests are not comfortable for us. ("Truck" front-end styling has been fixed on 2006 models.)
