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


No long-term info here. I just bought
this car. I had been waiting forever
to GM to make a reasonably priced
sporty wagon with AWD. Although the
MAXX isn't particularly sporty and only
has FWD, I couldn’t wait any longer. I
had a sports car before, so in
comparison the ride and handling are
very "cushy," but I am quickly getting
used to that! I thought I got a lot of
options for the price. The fit and
finish are nice and the interior is
very roomy. The car's outward
appearance makes it a "sleeper.” I
think this is a flexible car that has
features and utility that would be
great for anyone.

Best Features

Love the hatchback. Love the spaciousness. Adj. pedals are great for short people! XM is cool (but a bit distracting so far...so many channels!). Onstar is a nice feature.

Worst Features

AWD please! Maybe smaller headrests and wider glass in the back (if it can be accommodated structurally) for a better view? Plus parking assist, xenon headlights, and night vision. A version with more sporty handling and performance would be nice as well (SS ver next year)?
