2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx SS 4dr Hatchback (3.9L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Owned only 3 weeks but exceeding expectations. BMW/Vette owner that needed all round daily driver that drives well, has 4 person practicality, holds my offroad bicycle inside, and gets decent mpg. Found 4K mile SS by accident at dealer lot. Surprised with features. Dual sunroofs, XM, OnStar, DVD, 6CD, as well as space, quality, and value. Having been to Europe alot I like the styling and have never seen another Maxx SS (live in big city). Good power, ride, handling, dynamics, ergonomics and excellent value! MaxxSS replaces my Z71 Tahoe - almost as much cargo space but much more fun to drive and better mpg. GM/Saab platform for this car is very solid and sophisticated for this price level. Recommend!

Favorite Features

Allround capabilities. Space, driving dynamics, comfort, unique appearance, quality (surprise!), value, stereo/entertainment systems, tactile quality for price class, f/r sunroofs, 18" wheels, tasteful body effects, tire and chassis tuning, variable valve timing w/ pushrods, overall performance.

Suggested Improvements

5/6 speed or CVT tranny, some minor fit/finish improvements (detailing around rear sunroofs/shades), better mpg (averaging 22 mixed driving). Bottom Line: Bob Lutz has his people making much better vehicles at GM. Do your homework (as I did on Edmunds) and you might be surprised at what you will find.
