A nightmare from GM
By George on


2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Bought this car, went "American" despite advice of friends. Major reliabilty problems from the start (the body control module went out after 3 weeks, could have had a major loss of all electrical functions at high speed!)compounded by the absolute worst, rudest service (had my wife in tears) I have ever received from any company of any kind, ever. The steering is barely adequate and the brakes are dangerously slow. Their are some good features about this car, but overall it has been a disaster, and GM as a supporting company a nightmare. We found out first-hand why they are going broke.

Best Features

Reasonable interior design though the plastic parts are obviously cheap. Pretty good acceleration and gas mileage.

Worst Features

Inadequate braking, unresponsive feel to steering, major components went out after 3 weeks. GM service was an absolute nightmare!
