Car Displayed: 2004 Chevrolet Classic 2.2L 4 Cyl.

The 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Classic is a relatively easy car to maintain, and a good choice for any vehicle owner. The engine coolant reservoir is easily visible in the engine bay. This will allow you to check and replenish the fluid level on a regular basis. The components of the spare tire are easily accessible in the rear of the vehicle. This keeps the tire and jack kit reliably accessible in case of emergency. Checking the oil level is no problem, as the oil dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay.

Some things are more problematic on the 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic. You will need to remove a torx bolt in order to access one of the turn signal bulbs. The tools necessary may not be readily available for a repair. This vehicle does not come equipped with a transmission fluid dipstick. The reservoir is also very complicated to access, and you will need to take your vehicle into a dealer in order to check the fluid level. You will have to completely remove the tail light housing for access to many of the tail lights. You will have to peel back a lining in the trunk, and loosen many fasteners to disengage the housing.
