2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
My husband talked me into getting this car. What a nightmare! I have to take it to the dealership for warranty work about once per month. There is something loose in the dashboard. Twice the rotors had to be resurfaced. The brakes still drag. Power steering only functions about half of the time. Service does not know why. Sunroof leaks. Squeeks and rattles everywhere. The roadnoise is deaftening. Starter keeps turning over after car has started. It drives like a 5 year old car. The only reason that I keep the thing is the $8000 difference between what I owe and trade in value. If I can find an aggressive dealership, I will unload this lime ASAP.
DVD player keeps my son entertained.
More comfortable seats. Current seat feels like a church pew. Lumbar heat would be a nice addition to seating surface. Addition of integrated booster seats for children. DVD screen too low. It gets kicked all of the time.
