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


I agree that the front headrests are to
far forward. Try this, pull them off
and turn them backward, worked for me.
Getting 21MPG in city 32MPG on long
freeway trip. Very confortable and
quiet. MPG on trip meter is sometimes
right on but usually optimistic, it is
annoying that it changes in large
incriments(goes from 30.8 to 31.7 in
one step). 'Range to empty' actually
leaves almost 2 gallons in the tank.
Only annoyance is that the rear skylite
shades will snap open, especially when
the plactic holding the shade gets hot
and flexes. Scares my 5 year old.

Best Features

Easy to drive, great gas milage, very flexable interior. Lots of features for the price. Remote starter great for cooling off the car after it's been sitting in a parking lot at 105 degrees. Engine compartment very tight, no sign of any fluid leaks in the slightest.

Worst Features

Better clip to secure rear sunscreen. 5 speed auto would be nice, shifts into 4th below 40mph. Transmisson makes some noise at the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. Arm rest surfaces and console area by driver right leg are hard, needs better padding to be more confortable.
