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..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy

Cons: Body rust

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car has very good look to it in my opinion. The car is very fuel efficient. Spacious inside.

Cons: Not enough power for the power seeking person.

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.)

Pros: Love this car. Handles well and manufactured well.

Cons: Not enough aftermarket or factory upgrades available.

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.

Pros: color, handling, minimal repairs great gas mileage

Cons: a squeak in the dashboard on occasion

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

Pros: Cheap to run, great space

Cons: the usual gm interior

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.

Pros: Good performance, plenty of features, looks great

Cons: Not AWD, so so gas mileage.
