2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx 3.5 V6 from North America
Built cheap and runs fast
Windshield broken by a small stone.
Tires broke a belt.
Ignition system charging problem.
Broken seat lever.
Bad ball joint.
This car is built cheap and runs fast.
Good gas mileage, but it does not offset the high cost of ownership involved with this car. Have had nothing but problems, and has left my family stranded before.
Interior materials are of low quality, and the car's appearance is boxy and dull.
Torque steer is unreal.
When I traded the car, it was beginning to overheat in 60 degree temps.
I am a mechanic and I personally would not ever consider buying this model ever again. Resale value very weak.
Too many lows and very few highs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I read before that others had troubles with this car. Still, it seems like the swiss army knife of cars with that sunroof and HUGE passenger compartment. I've also seen them with low profile tires and aftermarket wheels. WOW, did that ever dress up the car.
Sorry about your troubles. I hear that the new Malibu is getting very good reliability scores, though.
