2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
If you want good power and very good
fuel economy look no further. This is
a very comfortable vehicle to drive
smooth and quiet. It is suprising that
the Malibu is the quietest car GM
makes? Go figure is is quieter than
any of the currently available
Cadillacs. Safety was a concern of
mine but all the data thus far seems to
indicate that this is a very safe car.
I was driving a Honda Accord EX before
this car which was a great car, but I
think Chevrolet has been trying for
years to measure up to Honda and Toyota
and has never been able to get the job
done until now. Now they have the
better car inside and out.
XM Radio, 5th door, DVD, 3.5 V6 and of
course remote start. One thing is the
the XM literature indicated that the
radio may not work outside the US.
I wish they would have used a glass
dual diversity antenna like they do in
other GM vehicles. I realize it is in
the rear window but they seem to work
well and don't snap at the car wash.
