2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car new in '04. After 1 year, it started to give me all kinds of problems... steering noises, suspension, brakes, you name it! Recently I needed a ball joint. Apparently a $50.00 replacement couldn't be found! It was also discontinued. A replacement cost me $300. I drive about 24,000 miles per year, not hard miles though. Can't wait to get rid of it.
