2008 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I have 111K on my 3.6L LTZ. I still like the quality interior and have been in few mid priced cars that can match the interior quality. It still runs and handles like new barring a minor squeek hear and there.

The only thing that has gone wrong is that I had to replace one power door lock mechanism. It's slowly loosing oil and coolant after 111K miles, but I think I can get at least another couple years out of it before I'd have to fix it. Also, the chevy key fobs are junk, and break but are pretty cheap to replace. I

Best Features

The ride is very quiet. I still like the look and feel of the interior compared to even 2012 cars that I've been in. Comfortable seats. Good power from the 3.6L.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is not good by 2012 standards. Tranny could shift more smoothly.

UPDATE: The engine spun a bearing at 145K miles. My mechanic is putting in a used enging for ~$2500 as I write this. I hope the tranny has some life in it!
