Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Chevrolet Malibu? Like almost everything. Was very affordable. Great gas mileage. I get around 30 mpg driving in rush hour traffic. I can get 35+ with careful driving on highway trips. Comfortable to drive and ride in. Can easily fit 2 carseats in back. 3 is a squeeze but we have done it. Exterior looks good. 54,000 miles and nothing has gone wrong. (We had to get new tires last year)
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Chevrolet Malibu? Interior seems cheap but is comfortable and seems to be wearing well even with 2 small children and their "stuff"
Rattling noise in the dash. Dealer couldn't locate it. It drives my husband nuts so I get to drive it instead.(A pro for me)
Doesn't handle well in slippery conditions. Any thought of touching the brakes and it goes sideways.
2006 Chevrolet Malibu Review: Overall, we have been very impressed with this car. We traded a dead Lumina with 220,000 miles for the Malibu with 1. Once the inital new car "look it only takes one try to start it; all the windows go up and down; all four doors open" glow wore off we were still impressed. The gas mileage is awesome. It is a smaller car but it is roomy on the inside. Recently we made a 4 hour drive with 3 adults and 2 kids in booster/carseats. The back seat was cozy but my 6 month pregnant sister was able to fit in the back seat comfortably. (We took turns driving) It is the first car I have ever been able to successfully parallel park.
