New Malibu - First Impressions
By MIScouter on
Vehicle
2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Purchased this vehicle last week and have put about 250 miles on the odometer. Chevrolet may have a winner here. Haven't considered a Chevy in 22 years, but it stacked up well against the VW Passat, Honda Accord, and Mazda6 that we also considered. Pushrod V6 provides plenty of power (200 HP) and lots of torque (220 ftlb). Loaded with useful features and plenty of room (101 cu ft EPA passenger space). Averaging over 22 MPG in mostly city driving so far. Chevy's attempt at a "manu-matic" shift lever needs work. 4th gear cannot be selected in manual mode.
Favorite Features
Factory Installed Remote Starter Cost vs competition Folding front passenger seat Heated front seats
Suggested Improvements
Smallish Instruments (especially tach) Quirky trans lever in manual mode
