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


I bought this car right before heading off to college for my freshman year. I had previously been driving a 1996 Audi A6 and it was nothing but trouble. After struggling with owning an aging European car, I decided to spring for a much cheaper-to-fix American car. Got a pretty good deal financing it and I haven't looked back. Handles better than the A6 (read: less like a tank) and has quite a bit more "oomph" behind it. The Fuel efficiency is great, I average around 30 highway and 27 city. As someone that commutes to a college 400+ miles away, it's great having a car that will always get me there reliably. Made the 8 hour trip 20+ times now and not a single problem. Consider me switched.

Best Features

Reliable, up to 60,000 miles an no issues in sight. Good fuel efficiency Quick on its feet

Worst Features

The Interior is rather plain (obviously) lacks a few of the bells and whistles I was accustomed to.
