2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Bought after 2005 models introduced and got an excellent price. Loved it for the 1st couple of years until things started to fail. CD player failed on way home from the dealership. Replaced, but failed again in 2 years. Power steering and drivers seat frame failed. Although same steering failures covered under extended warranty for some VIN's, Chevy made us pay for more than half of cost. Rear seat reclining levers broke, fuse problems, both remote controls broke.
Heated seats, speakers, spacious back seat, fold down back seats, good mileage.
Higher quality materials and much better quality control
