"My wife had to have a black Maxx LT the first time she seen one, we owned a 2000 Malibu at the time (190,000 miles w/o major issues) and then we found the Maxx at our local Chevrolet dealer and the rest is history (to the tune of 209,000 miles on her Maxx and mine just turning 100,00 (yes I bought one after her's hit the 190,000 mile mark) Sadly Chevrolet seen fit to end the run of our beloved Maxx and low mile used are few and far between. We regrettably will be replacing her's with a 3/4 truck (that I will drive because she now wants my Maxx) could not be happier with the choice of vehicle! by the way I am a Ford technician and proudly own a Chevrolet!"

Exceptional car.

"Dependable, useful design like a station wagon but better looking. I hate to get rid of it but of course they don't make it anymore so I can't buy another one."

ONE OF THE MOST WELL TAKEN CARE OF CARS .

"I have owned this car since driving it off the showroom floor. I have maintained it well with oil changes, tire rotations, front end alignments etc. I have had some issues but almost every one of them has been taken care of by GM on recalls. Great mileage (and I have 121K)and I will now be handing it over to my grandson with no doubt it will continue to perform well while he is in college."

"A Chevy Malibu was my first car when I turned 17 and is the only kind of car I want to own and drive for the rest of my life. I've owned two thusfar and both have been absolutely great. EXTREMELY reliable, good on gas, and a cheap fix if anything did go wrong. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone."

what a sweet ride!

"This car is my baby. where i live, it is not logical to have a car. The vehicle is in good condition. never had any issues with it. never missed an oil change and always kept up with the general maintenance. The body is in great condition. the interior does need a little cleaning but all of the seats are not damaged, just slightly satined. just had a NY inspection done in may and she passed. The mechanic informed me that the shocks need to be redone sometime this year but overall she is in great shape. Oh, and last thing is that the upper brake light above the hatch is broken. after I got the car back from inspection, the mechanic "fixed" the brake light and it popped out 2 weeks later. once again, this car has driven me all over and i have never had any issues with it. wish i could keep the car but it just isn't logical or convenient any longer."
