You are in the Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, Hatchback
Dec 25, 2004 (4:54 pm)
Bought my first 2004 Maxx LS in early Sept 04. It has the preferred package option. Window price $23,150...paid $13,000. Dec 18th went back and bought a leftover Maxx LT with a sunroof. Window price $25,450....paid $15,000. I still can't believe how great these cars are. Features, features, and more features! Smooth, powerful, economical,comfortable, practical, and inexpensive to purchase....I must have died and gone to heaven. Kudus to Chevy for this car!!!

#2746 of 5257 Accutire MS-4100B, brand new, anyone use it yet?
Dec 26, 2004 (9:01 pm)
I bought the Accutire MS-4020B and had trouble getting it to fit to get a proper readout, anyone try the newest Accutire MS-4100B. Costs about $30, should be worth it, but wanted to see if anyone used it and their experience.
#2747 of 5257 Another good review of the Maxx

can be found at automobile.com (add www. in front for full web address).
They liked it over the Malibu and found it compared well with other small wagons or hatches.
As my Maxx is currently in shop for bumper repair, I am driving a rental VW Jetta. Will post comparisons of Maxx to Jetta once my rental stint is over.

Thanks for the tip, Kurtamaxxguy. I agree the article is worth checking out.
Be sure to give us your impression of the VW Jetta after you turn it back in.
#2749 of 5257 brief comparison notes
Dec 28, 2004 (12:09 pm)
Wrt Maxx .vs. Jetta, some brief comments:
1. Instruments; Jetta Instrument panel glows in red and blue - hard to read at night. Every button is lit, though, even rear window controls (Maxx does not light rear window, but does light the audio/DVD console).
2. Ride; Jetta rides a bit better. Feels more connected to the road and does not have the "gut jiggle" the Maxx's rear suspension often exhibits.
Jetts is noiser over bumps, though.
3. Build quality; Jetta has 32K miles .vs. Maxx 13K. A lot more rattles in the jetta and there are some poorly fitting plastic parts.
4. Steering; Jetta is more "hair trigger" in the freeway; small steering wheel motions result in big moves. Steering is much heavier, but you do get a tiny bit more road feel.

Companies pay an annual fee to be members of the Better Business so they tend to favor the "hand that feeds" them. When I have a problem with a business I've successfuly filed a claim with the Department of Consumer Affairs (here in NJ there is one in every county or there is one in your state). The more documentation you have the stronger will be your case. Just insist on a full investigation.

How did you get so much off you Maxxes? Do you work for GM?
Best deals around here are maybe $2000 cash back total.
