Gave American cars a shot
By tyler drew on
2006 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Overall, I am pleased with the vehicle except for the gas mileage. It is for me nowhere near the stated rating, however, I drive with a very heavy foot. The acceleration is nice for the size engine, and the LTZ package offers all the extras except for a moon roof (which I opted for). So far,(3 months) I have found the build quality to be acceptable and I haven't had any problems at all. My wife likes the car also, and among vehicles at a comparable price, I think it is a good choice. For me, the Altima, Camry and Maxima didn't do it for me with their interior design (dahboard, cluster arrangements). I figured American manufacturers will have to get their act together, so I gave them a shot.
Rearview mirror compass, heated seats, chrome mags, auto light system, remote start system (which when activated, heats or cools the vehicle to 70 degrres) XM radio that displays the artist and name of the tune you are listening to, OnStar, hands free phone. All the features are standard on LTZ exc XM
