2006 Malibu SS Reality Check
By Ted's Reality on
2006 Chevrolet Malibu SS 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
This is a hot new ride that offers a LOT for the money. Only in Ted's dreams, however, does he get 30-40mpg with a 3.9L V6. Chevrolet only rates it 18-23 or so. After market parts might allow one to milk it for another 10-15%. Make no mistake, this is a comfortable but gas guzzling ride with a lot of punch under the hood.
Interior anemities lend to a roomy and pleasant driving experience regardless of where you are seated.
Wind noise is still an issue with vehicles at this entry level.
