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


We bought the 2004 Maxx with about 34,000 miles and actually have put less than average mileage since. However, the car continues to please with excellent performance, amazing mileage for a 6 cyl engine and good interior ergonomics. The front end design is the primary downside; the new Chevy front end styling (see 2008 Malibu) would really set this car off. I'll be in need of a new car soon (this one's my wife's) so I wish Chevy would wise up and produce the Maxx for the current Malibu lineup.

Best Features

Versatility, interior room, great features, good sound system, good ride. Overall, performance beats the competition that I've driven.

Worst Features

Too much understeer in front during hard turns, front end design is clunky. Put a VW handling system in place and you'd have a real Euro car.
