2004 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall the quality of the workmanship was very good interior & exterior. The 3.5 engine was a little slow on the pick up in lst gear range, but the second range was very satisfactory & smooth. Engine is very compact & every unit (battery--air filter--water reservoir ETC) was easy accessable & not crammed at all. One nice feature is the electric steering. Mileage overall combination Hwy & city average was 23.5. I imagine a long mileage highway trip will produce more.


Favorite Features

Besides the electric steering, I like the electric rear view mirror which reflects the headlites to a soft color.I like the fold down rear seats, which when up are individual split & adjustable for more leg room. I like the large open trunk with adjustable shelf.


Suggested Improvements

Rear passengers have a roof support grab assist handle to exit. The front passengers do not. This item should be a necessity. Remove the two rear passenger sun roof windows. Do away with the right O/S mirror extended & varied view. Both O/S rear view mirrors should be a tad larger.

Review

My first brand new car, and I am loving every minute of driving time! I did have some problems, but the dealership took care of me and my Malibu. My parents just purchased a LS Malibu!


Suggested Improvements

I did as well have problems with my steering, took it back to dealership and they replaced the steering coloum and upgraded computer. Works great now!

Review

I REALLY LIKED MY CAR AT FIRST BUT HAVE HAD A FEW PROBLEMS WITH IT. MATTER OF FACT IT IS SITTING AT THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN...MY STEERING IS NOT RIGHT, IT IS TO LOOSE. I HAVE TOLD THEM TWICE NOW AND HAVE WRECKED MY CAR BECAUSE OF IT. I AM DRIVING A LOANER CAR NOW, 2004 MALIBU AND IT STEERS PERFECTLY. MY A/C ALSO HAS GONE OUT, OH DID I MENTION I AM IN FLORIDA! I HOPE THEY CAN WORK OUT THE PROBLEMS BECAUSE IT HAS POTENTIAL...

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I never would have imagined in a million years that I would've purchased a Chevy Malibu. I love it! I love the way it handles, and total package blows away any car in the same price range in my opinion.


Favorite Features

Keyless start, Driver Information center, XM Radio, and very roomy.


Suggested Improvements

Don't like that the head rest on the drivers side can't be adjusted.
