2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I have had this vehicle in the shop 10 times in last year. Rear hatch leaked and took two trips to repair. Front seat broke due to faulty seat metal. Now the steering has major issues that Chevy says their aware of but can't fixed. Mine locked up from stop position with wheels turned to right. During right turns your driver's side front end sounds like it is coming out the hood and floor board. Steering makes terrible sounds while turning. Braking at 50 mph and above the vehicle front end shakes violently. I have paper from GM service that brakes are OK. Don't by this car used. It is unsafe.
