Review

I bought my Maxx new in July of 2006. Best purchase ever. It now has 113,000 miles and I have had two small issues. When it was under 36k miles it had a oil pan gasket leaked fixed under warranty and the worst issue is the remote start remote does not last. I have had 2 and need another and they are around $150 each.


Favorite Features

MPG I get 31 on the highway and about 24 in city I average 27.5-28.5 depending on time of the year. GM needs to go back to this car and remake them. GREAT CAR!


Suggested Improvements

Remote start remote is horrible.

Review

We had a Volkswagen Jetta, but with two boys over 6 feet, there was no leg room! Lots in the Max, I like sunroof and heated seats.


Favorite Features

Lots of leg room-I like the hatchback to get food out of cooler or to see my dog!

Review

I bought an '06 Maxx LT with 70k (43,500 mi) on it, in October '09. It's whisper quiet, fast, gets 28-30 mpg, and I love the looks. The one complaint I had was the 'clunking' noise coming from the steering column that seems a common complaint. I sprayed some lubricant on the steering shaft (under the dash) and no more clunk! It's a great alternative to the bigger SUVs and for my needs, very practical, with the folding seats, and removable rear deck cover. The 3.1 L V6 gets the job done quite nicely. Love it!


Favorite Features

Roominess, remote start, cargo capacity, appearance.


Suggested Improvements

Start making them again!
