Definitely a great buy
Car has been amazing, my only problem was hard cranking with hot engine.
But I happen to go to school for GM, and we just fixed that problem a few minutes ago with a Tech 2 diagnostic tool.
The car is absolutely amazing, I never envisioned myself driving a Malibu until I found the LS model at a dealership, I fell in love with it instantly.
The car has a sleek style to it, she runs like a dream, picks up acceleration amazingly when I switch down into second gear in the manual overdrive.
Gas mileage has been amazing, I went from a gas guzzling 98 Ranger which I got a max of 16mpg on the highway, to a Malibu which reaches over 35mpg.
The comfort of the car is amazing.
There is an amazing amount of leg and head room, a lot of my friends are in the 6'4" area and they can fit in the front seat and back seat with ease.
The controls are easy to understand, but don't look basic.
The factory sound system in this car is phenomenal, to most that is the least of their worry, but driving 40 miles to school every morning at 6am, the loud/clear system really helps to keep me awake.
I recommend this car to anyone seeking a vehicle for commuting, or for families.
The 2004 Malibu is is an all-around amazing car, its mpg is almost that of a Camry, just made with a more badass engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
