Don't buy GM

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


I have owned this car for less than a year (less than 70,000 miles) and it has had more than $3000 in repairs. The most recent issue for me was loss of power steering while on the highway. It's obvious to me that GM was aware of this safety issue, having issued a recall for the same year/make/model, although not including my VIN and they are not at all willing to assist me, although the dealership offered me a 10% discount on my bill. I will never again purchase a GM vehicle after the poor customer service I have received and vehicle quality I have experienced.

Best Features

DVD player and sunroof

Worst Features

This prototype needed to be further reviewed prior to be released to the general public. Many flaws, including issues with the intermediate shaft and steering column.
