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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
