Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Reviews

Drove my 06 Maxx at the dealers when it had 3 miles on it, put 4 miles on it during the test drive, bought it the next day. Since then have put 3 sets of tires on it, 2 sets of brakes, 4 sets of windshield wiper blades, one set of front struts, and changed the oil 21 times. Car has 160,000 miles and still drives like a new one. It also still goes around corners like a big go cart.

This has been a most excellent little car for me. Love the gas mileage. I've had to have the steering column replaced once and drivers' seat has been broke twice. We welded it each time but frame still breaks. Not a fatty either. :) A cd is stuck in my player, it won't eject. I've had this issue for about 5 years. Radio commercials are killing me. The bushings wore out in the stabilizer bar. I had them replaced for near to nothing because I let them cut a whole in the framework. It doesn't hurt anything. The noise is the back is gone though. That's all I cared about because it was awful sounding. Throttle needed cleaned for start up issues. That fixed my problem. I've had autozone tell me that my starting system was bad when in fact it's been that gold battery they sell. I've had a new one each year. Warranty replace thank goodness. I can't say I'd buy this car again but I loved the speed, handling, ease of use of this car. Pretty white color. Repeat, love the gas mileage. Sun and moon roofs are great options. Now, off to fix that cd player. Also, I bought two remote starters from Ebay for $15. Had them reprogrammed at chevy dealer (check around) for $20. Original dealership wanted $110 remote and $75 to program. Hahaha

My 2006 Maxx has 96,000 miles on it, and has required very little in the way of repairs. I replaced a front wheel bearing and tie rod end at around 75,000, and did the brakes at around 50,000 miles. Other than that all I have done is fluid replacements. I average 33 miles per gallon on the highway during the summer, and about 23 mpg in town. The car drives and looks almost new, and I live in upstate New York where the winters are brutal.

Visitor Miami,Florida.

2007 malibu maxx LT. I am not getting the 22 MPG it is supposed to give me..... I have been checking every time I put gasoline in, and I am only getting 14 MPG. The car is working fine,no lights on the dash.

I enjoy the interior and design of this touring vehicle. Unfortunately i have had to replace rotors and pads more than once within three years. The power steering in my 2005 malibu maxx occasionally fails when I first start my car. The headlamps burn out after just a couple months of installation. The keyless entry no longer works. The power locks buttons do not work inside the car. There is a clunking noise when turning sharp to the left or to the right.
