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


Bought it used, with less than 4,000 miles, and I've put about 2,000 on it to date. I've been very satisfied with every aspect of this car so far with 2 exceptions - torque steer and fuel economy, as mentioned in other reviews. The handling, suspension, and performance are very good. Seats are comfortable, and controls are easy to reach. Steering wheel buttons for radio and cruise control are a bit small, however. This car may not be a Lexus, BMW or other high priced sports/luxury car. It is what it is. But I like being different from everyone else. You don't see a Malibu SS at every corner, and it's fun to have people say "a Super Sport? I didn't know Chevy made it!"

Best Features

Remote start. Distinctive looks. Great steering feel. Nice paint and clearcoat, very easy to wash and dry. 6 disc stereo.

Worst Features

Five speed auto trans with a better final drive ratio to improve highway fuel mileage. Sportier gauge package with oil pressure, water temp, etc. Larger fuel tank
