2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 3.5L OHV V6 from North America
A spacious sporty hatchback
Nothing at all. Quality has been excellent.
I love this car, I got the fully loaded version. It has leather seats, automatic climate control, rear audio, sunroof front and back and a DVD player.
I like its versatility, the rear seats slide forward or back and recline for comfort. Also, the trunk is very versatile and makes hauling items much easier.
The 200 HP OHV V6 has lots of get up and go and gets wonderful fuel economy, which I monitor while driving as it has a trip computer integrated into the radio.
I would recommend this car to people who need the versatility of an SUV or Van, but with the handling of a sport sedan. I also like how it shares the same platform as the Opel Vectra, but is a bit bigger to make passengers more comfy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi there. Wondering about the Maxx's build quality being the first model in this series. Is there wind noise when driving on the highway? How does it handle in the turns? Have you noticed any "little things" that might become concerns later on? I really think Chevrolet has created a sporty family wagon that can compete with the imports, but not sure I have the courage to be a buyer in its first year out. Additional details are appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
