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


We replaced our 98 Malibu with this
new Maxx. There is an impressive
amount of car here for the money when
combined with all the rebate. This
car is very quiet, responsive and
powerful. The construction of this
car is much more solid then anything
GM we have seen before. Our biggest
complaint is some initialy quality
issues. We had a squeaky lift gate
(dealer has not fixed), and an
innacurate gas gage (dealer fixed by
replacing tank). I find the reviews
including edmunds don't give enough
credit to the power with great gas
mileage on REGULAR fuel, with the cost
of gas very important to us. There
are a lot of good ideas in this car
and amazing amount of technology.

Best Features

Hatchback opening and storeage space. The V6's power and economy. Corners confidently. Quiet and smooth at high speed. Sliding and reclining rear seat!

Worst Features

Overall build quality, initial problems should have been taken care of! Do not integrate stereo with car display system (no way to replace this stereo with aftermarket when it fails or you want an upgrade). Electric power steering does not offer right feedback, needs more work.
