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


Review

I love this car! Although, I am
disappointed with the gas efficiency
and the recent recall, I have
experienced no problems with my
Malibu. I have received numerous
compliments from strangers regarding
the styling and have found that it is a
fun car to drive. The little features
in the car are wonderful. Would highly
recommend this automobile to a
prospective buyer!


Best Features

Exterior, interior console and dashboard.


Worst Features

Better miles per gallon performance!

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have now put over 1300 miles on this
car and for the most part am satified
with it. I previously own a 99 and a
02 Malibu and felt they were excellent
cars. I was disappointed that the base
model of the new line of Malibu's only
has a 2.2l 4 cylinder engine, although
it has more than enough power to get
the job done and gets excellent
mileage. A recent 360 mile road trip
got 37.8 mpg according to the onboard
trip computer. It is very unfortunate
that they have dropped the ABS and
child door locks from the standard
equipment list for the base model.


Best Features

I like the remote start and the onboard trip computer. These "toys" are fun to play with but I would rather they kept the ABS and 6 cyl engine as standard equipment.


Worst Features

Dump the 4 cyl engine and make the 6 cyl standard on all trim levels like in previous years. Restore the ABS to the standard equipment list for all trim levels. This year's Malibu has traded far too many safety and performance items for "toys" like the trip computer.

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


Review

Like many other reviewers I love this
car compared to everthing else in it's
price range. Car seems more refined.
Drive out price was 23K after buying new
tag. Dealer gave us a 3K Rebate instead
of 2K with proof of ownership of non GM
car - Strange I find that nowhere on the
internet.


Best Features

3.5 V6 Info Center Detail And Programming Lux features in LT like more expensive cars Relatively quiet ride.

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


Review

I love my new 2004 Chevy Malibu LT V6,
from the outside, to the inside, its an
awsome well built car! The gas mileage
doesnt impress me much, but with so
many standard features, and a low
asking price, man, you should check it
out!


Best Features

I love the heated seats, the remote vehicle start, powerful V6, handles great on the windy back roads through the country!


Worst Features

More use of Wood trim on the inside would look good, and maybe 17 inch rims, chrome?

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


Review

This is my first Chevorlet vehicle. I
have owned nothing but Saturns since
1995. I was impressed by the look of
the 2004 Malibu, compared to the other
models of the car. But the test drive
is what truely sold me on the car. It
is roomy, with having three kids, I
need alot of room in a vehicle. It
handles like a dream, takes corners
easy. And parking in tight spaces is
easy too. The 2004 Malibu is truely a
pleasure to drive and ride in.


Best Features

My favorite features in the 2004 Malibu are the adjustible pedals, and the telescopic steering wheel. The traction control is a major plus as well. We also like the suttle use of the woodgrain accents in the interior. The automatic lights are a cool feature too.


Worst Features

At this point in time I can't really think of any improvements.
