has very good horsepower but does pack a punch when trying to pass other cars.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

it is reliable, needs work done to it like suspension and also new ignition. Other than that it is a decent car. It has decent miles on it. I feel like I did pay a little too much for a car like mine. 3k should have agent lower like 2k. It drives smooth with new tires. The ac and heater is excellent probably the best I've ever seen in a car. Is super good on gas 20 will put a little over half a tank. It has a sunroof which is nice. I would recommend this car for a price of around 2k with about 150k miles on it. We put a little over 59 miles on it and is still running good. 2004 Chevy Malibu LT. The seat are fairly comfortable. And has good space for a car like this.

Review on my Chevy 2004 Malibu!

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

I really love my Chevy Malibu! It gets great gas mileage and handles great going down the road! It has plenty of get up and go when you need to accelerate in a hurry! Stopping quickly is not an issue either! I love the sun and moon roofs in it and the fact the pedals adjust! The seats are comfortable on my back and adjust nicely to accommodate the driver!

This is a vehicle which mostly runs very well and can always be counted on.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

This car runs very good. The air condition is fantastic along with the heating system. Not exactly a car I would like to keep for many years as it is older but it is an amazing first car and not only runs good but is safe as well. There is no 'problems' with it per say as it is a very reliable car which I have always been able to count on.

Perfect gas saver for small family.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

A Chevy Malibu is great for a small family. It's a great gas saver and very spacious for a small.Vehicle..It has a sunroof for those warm days and a CD player for you to enjoy your favorite music. Comes with automatic doors and windows as well as remote access. I would highly recommended this car.

Reliable car worth looking into.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Good reliability, very few problems with normal maintenance. It's a comfortable car that is easy to work on yourself. I have changed several things myself and I know nothing about cars. It has 135,000 miles and I am expecting to get at least another 20-30,000 miles out of it before replacing it.

This car lasts a very long time.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu LT

I had a different Chevy Malibu that I bought 12 years old and had for another 5 years. I have another Chevy Malibu at 12 years old and have had for 3 years already and has not needed as many repairs. I have no issues with the engine or starting the car. It should last several years.
