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

Review

From the first month of ownership, the car had various troubles. Visor fell off, CD changer did not function, keyless remote needed to be replaced, steering malfunctioned, tire blew at high speed on interstate, and finally a MAF sensor went out. I had decided to trade it after making my 16th car payment, but the decision was made for me when a driver rear-ended me and totalled the car. The Malibu, on its Saab chassis, protected us very well in a pretty high speed collision. I was stopped and the other driver ran into me at 35 miles an hour, knocking me across the intersection with 3 distinct hits. I am now shopping for an import.

Best Features

Steering, paint job

Worst Features

Start was not nearly as smooth as my 1997 Malibu. Trunk latch button can be set off in motion while placing object such as cassette box into pocket. Needs to be relocated.
