2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I've driven my Malibu for 7,500 miles
now and if I could get out from under
it without taking a bath it would be
I drive 120 miles daily and this is
the most uncomfortable car I have ever
owned. The seat bases are far too
short hitting me mid thigh and
causing pain in my legs after only 20
minutes of driving. The electric power
steering is a poor choice and needs
more boost at highway speeds. An hour
of driving and my hands are cramped.
The suspension works great in town but
on smooth blacktop it sets up a
harmonic vibration at 45-65 mph that
shakes the entire car...very poorly
Tranny does not shift into high
without letting off the gas.
