2006 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the car for my wife since her 1996 Ford Taurus was on its last leg. So we drove a used Malibu. Seemed great compared to what we had and a decent price. 1 month later the steering had a knock in it when you turned the wheel parked or at low speeds. Very common problem in many Chevy trucks as well. Dealer ship did a quick fix, and 2 months later it reappeared. Now if I want piece of mind for a real fix $500. Chevrolet has gone down hill with products over last 10 years. Do not buy this car unless you have no other choice. Great power from engine is only good quality about it.

2006 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Well it does get 33 mpg, it is safe, runs great. Everyone fights to drive it the radio is good. The price was right, bought as a demo. Had a steering clunk had it fixed under warranty at 20k now at 48k having the same issue. The service notice is 06-02-32-007f. And if it hasn't happened to you just wait every Malibu owner has had the same issue and it cost $400.00 to fix and the service manger at my dealership said it last about 5k to 20k miles depending on driving habits.


Favorite Features

Lights, seats, radio, sunroof, heated seats, steering wheel controls.

2006 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For the money this has been a great car. Bought with 6K miles and only a few issues that so far the dealer took care of. Tires did wear quickly but that's not cars fault. Gas mileage is excellent. At 35K miles now, we'll see how the next 30K go... Had considered Camry but got a fully loaded 6 cyl for almost half the price..


Favorite Features

Gas mileage. V6 power. all the extras, heated seats, remote start, power seat, wheels, on and on


Suggested Improvements

Again for the price can't really think of any. Wouldn't buy new off lot with depreciation.

Review

I had the car a month. I love it. I like the handling, the style, the performance, and the quick pick up on the highway. And all the standard features which got me the most. It is a very sporty looking and very classy looking as well. The interior is very comfortable, more comfortablel than the Camry. For a 6 cyclinder car the gas mileage is not as bad as I thought it would be. Bottom line it's a great car and I highly recommend it.


Favorite Features

Auto start heated seats. OnStar steering wheel mounted audio controls. It is so much safer to change the station and select the songs on the CD you want. The fog lamps, the automatic climate control. The rearview auto-dimming, with the eight-point compass. Heated outside mirrors, the adjustable pedals.


Suggested Improvements

The steering wheel on the LTZ and the on on the SS should be both the same 3 spoke sport wheel. Also i thing the LTZ should come with a standard 6 disc in dash CD changer.
