Lots of car for the money
By George on


2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Feels, drives, and is equipped like a much more expensive car. Bought for wifey, she loves it too. Other car is an '06 Chrysler 300C, which of course I like even more, but this Maxx does not feel like too big a step down when I drive it, unlike the '02 Malibu we traded which was dependable but a noisy cheap ride. This is much more like it. The car was an absolute bargain. The current "Red Tag Sale" for '06 models is disguised rebate of $2500 to $3000 depending on region of US you live in. With GM credit card earnings of $2600, took home for under 15K, sticker was 22,700. Note of caution, about mid- model year, GM did not change invoice, but cut MSRP by 5%. Late 2006 MSRP closer to 21,700

Best Features

Firm, solid seating, peppy engine. Much quiter than previous Malibu.

Worst Features

Cheapo retractable shades for rear seat fixed sunroof.
