  • I have 01/2004 Maxx and today I tried to start the car for about 10 minutes. I have tried to start, but the result was just the silence. Then I was waiting and trying again and again. Usually, in the cases like this, the car started on the second ti…
  • Coolant has a nice orange color and is between the levels. It was filled in less than a year ago. I had the temp sensor changed already and after about 9 months the engine thermostat, because there was a code P0128 again. Somehow, then there was a…
  • Today my car refused to start for 10 minutes. After that the engine temperature gauge was and stayed on cold (no movement up noticed for the rest of the day during 3 trips). In addition the heat was gone and it was cold in the car. Is it possible th…
  • Does anyone know whether I can buy a bumper painted in the color of my car from GM? Or it has to be painted anyway? My MAXX was involved in a hit & run accident in the parking lot while I was at work on Dec. 1st (I have a car since Feb). When I …
  • I am glad that there are others who have the same opinion about the cheap design of MAXX. I saw this type of skylight in a different car and there was a better design of a latch holding the shade. I would gladly get rid of the shades or keep them op…
  • Does anyone have a problem with the rear shades on the skylights? Mine tend to snap back a few times a month (the car is three months old and has 3000 miles) and the plastic that holds them becomes more flat with every month. The frequency of this p…
  • I like this explanation. I wonder why CARFAX has my MAXX LS as 2004 CHEVROLET MALIBU MAXX BASE? Is there any MAXX base?
  • e2helper: Could you check the status of the latest calibration of my Maxx with a build date 01/04 and the last VIN digits: 162807? Thanks
  • Has anyone noticed a steering wheel moving to the left while accelerating from the stop? Maybe this is coincident, but I have not had this earlier (before the replacement). Thanks for input.
  • Another pull to the left car After the steering column replacement the steering wheel started to turn left by itself while accelerating from the stop. It turns left for about 10 degrees. This is in addition to the pull to the left issue, which beca…
  • makk: I have 2004 Maxx LS built in Jan.2004 I see the same thing when I look from behind the car. The rear right side is lower than the left side. When I looked underneath the car, it seems that my 2004 Maxx has the deformed suspension spring on t…
  • Thanks. I hope that the dealer will fix the steering problem the first time I go there and will not make the interior dirty like it was the last time. But, who knows? I also plan to replace the headrests.
  • My Maxx has started to experience the same steering wheel pulsing while slightly turned right and/or stopped a few weeks ago. What does it indicate? Is there a fix for it? The car has 10,160 miles and was built in Jan.2004. Other than that I have…
  • Thanks pao for joining me in the shades problem.
  • Pao, the message in #105 (Malibu MAXX- rear shades) are the words from the actual e-mail I received from GM customer service in a reply on 7/1/04. When I bought my Maxx in February, I registered it in www.mygmlink.com. When the shades started to o…
  • Rear shades. I got good news! I just received a reply from GM. These are their exact words: “There will be a service fix available in the near future for the rear sunshades (...) as we are currently designing a permanent repair for this co…
  • My Malibu Maxx has had rough idle from time to time (6 to 8 times within the last three months). I took it to the dealership to check the computer, but they did not find any code indicating that something is wrong (3,650 miles).
  • e2helper: thanks for detailed explanation I just did not like to drive with the head tilted forward while sitting straight. Now, it is much better.
  • My Maxx was bought in Feb. 2004 and has over 12K. It had a few fixes for the common problems such as PCM update for idle, rear sunshades retainers, steering column replacement done last week and headrests replacement this week. There is some rattl…
  • Yes, I had the same problem. I solved it by calling the customer center and they fixed it. My problem was that I wanted to register my car in the name of the second purchaser and they have the cars under the name of the first.
  • I completely agree with you. The material the frame is made of should be made of something not flexible and the latch should be in the shape of a hook, maybe, and be attached to something more rigid and not changing its shape. I would prefer to have…
  • I am going to remind GM the rear shades problem again today. Otherwise, my car was built in Jan. 2004 and I bought it in Feb, besides the shades, some rattles and squeaks no other problems so far. I also have an extended warranty, just in case.
