When I got approved for Saturn ION buyback I parked it in a low risk location, took out a long term rental and waited for the dealer contact. Fortunately everyone left the ION alone and the buyback went smoothly (the Saturn dealer went over the car with a fine toothed comb - whatever damage they found was the result of their own service techs!).
I suspect Chevy dealer will be same, closely inspecting car for any damage they can bill you for. Be sure it's clean, polished, looking nice when it goes back.
You might also ask the dealer if you can transport their inspector to your site, and let them sign off the buyback there.

I too am surprised that the Chevy dealers cannot look up pertinent TSB's to the Maxx. The first thing the Pontiac dealer does when I drop off my Bonneville is look up TSB's and he tells me if there are any that pertain to my car and what they relate too.
#1728 of 3823 Malibu Pulling Left
Mar 28, 2005 (1:03 pm)
I have a '04 Malibu and did experience the drifting left problem. However, the dealer did correct it - maybe by over compensation with the alignment? I am not getting any unusual tire wear and drove 420 highway miles over the weekend and got 33mpg driving about 70mph. That, I thought was impressive. Overall, after 20K miles, I am still happy with the car.

Chevy dealers CAN look up TSBs, GM customer assistance may not have access-they should-but oftentimes it seems as though they have limited information.

Our 2004 MAXX has the same problem unless one steps really hard on parking brake pedal.

No. I don't think I would. Many features; but too many rattles and still have noisy power steering. The rattles make one suspect poor assembly, I suppose.
#1732 of 3823 Damn cup holder....
Mar 29, 2005 (7:37 am)
Or should I say cup holder liner? The one next to the shifter keeps sticking to my plastic soda cup and pulls right out stuck to the cup. Sure enough, last night I must have tossed it in the trash with the cup because it wasn't there this morning.
Anyone else have this problem? Any fixes? Any good on-line sources for Chevy parts such as this?

Try using some velcro, it'll make the liner harder to come out, but still allow you to take it out to clean it.

No fix, but it happens to us all the time too.

Did you know there was a recall on the steering column.
