Economical Basic Transportation — I bought this car new and have put 110,000+ miles on it. It has been a very reliable and economical car. Gets over 25 mpg around town and 30+ mpg highway. It is plenty comfortable for basic transportation. Would consider purchasing another...when this one wears out..

Very Good Car — Overall I really like this car. It is very good on gas and has good space inside for the family. It has a stylish look inside. The handling on the car is great. Very easy to make the turns. I know that I can rely on this car to get me to point A.

Looks Great And Has Some Zipp ! — The only real problem that I have with this car is the lack of factory or aftermarket upgrades. Would love to put more performance upgrades on the car . Also would like some optional exterior items such as badges, etc. Other then that I love the car and its a pleasure to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great! — Love the take off it feels like a sports car but drives like a luxury car. Gas is great only takes about $35-$45 to fill up. My car is black and has black leather and suede inside. It is fun to drive.

A Malibu In The Medwest — I lovethat my car is sleek, but is still practical. The price was right. It gets great gas mileage and it is very comfortable to drive. It handles well on the icy snowy streets where I live and is as atractive as any luxury car.

Cheap to run, great space

the usual gm interior

Malibu 2006 Ls — With only a 2.2 engine doesnt feel heavy like a 2.4 Stratus and gives better fuel economy than a 2.5 Altima i think the interior could use a little more work i think its a great looking car cheap to run and mantain its a comfortable car when u want to when u press the gas transforms itself

Good performance, plenty of features, looks great

Cons

Not AWD, so so gas mileage.

My '06 Chevy Malibu — I love my Malibu. It s pretty great overall. Plenty of features performance is great rides like a dream and looks good also. Gas mileage is so-so but 23 mpg is "ok" for a V6 I suppose. Only thing I don t like about the car is that its a FWD car. I d rather have RWD or AWD.
