2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I've had my Maxx for over a year. I love the power and on a 3000 mile road trip the mileage was as good as my old Honda Accord. Overall it's a great car. I think I would've gotten a better deal if I'd waited until it was on the market a while longer. Minor problems include the rear sunshades snapping, rear passenger window 'bumping' when you open it, and the front passenger often hits the heat button for the seat on entry (not fun in the summer). Occasional hesitation on start up happened a lot at first (the dealer claimed it's Chevy thing) and a recent problem with the wipers.
Adjustable pedals, rear sunroofs, DVD. I love the heated seats and remote start
Add a rear wiper and better quaility control at the factory. The dealer telling me the hesitating start is a 'Chevy thing" was a little disturbing when you just spent $25K.
