Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Chevrolet Malibu?
Have the SS sedan. Definitely the only way to go with Malibu's.

Roomy enough to sit 4 adequate sized adults very comfortably, sometimes 5.

The 3.9L engine is awesome. A lot of power at any speed. I still get an average of 20 in mostly city driving, which isn't too bad considering the size of the engine.

The car handles beautifully, kudos to the upgraded SS suspension and 18 inch wheels. Corners on a dime.

Dual exhaust adds nice appeal and exhaust note.

Side airbags are a plus.

Remote start is a nice add-on.

And I could keep going on...

Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Chevrolet Malibu?
The 4 speed auto with manual mode is interesting. Would have preferred a shift gate, rather than a button control on the knob, but it still works. I wish it could have been maybe a six-speed auto like in the Pontiac G6's?

Interior is no eye-catcher. I would have liked to see more brightly lit gauges at night. And no other SS emblems in the interior other than on the steering wheel. Would have liked to seen maybe SS in the carpeting or the embroidered into the seats.

2006 Chevrolet Malibu Review:
The SS sedan is worth it. It looks and performs better than any other Malibu that Chevy offers. The engine sounds very smooth, yet is a powerhouse. The interior is comfortable, but Chevy could do a little better with their interior styling. It's functional, but it's not going to blow you away. And as much as I would prefer a different tranny setup, this Malibu is still a performer.

If you're looking for a car that's roomy, a performer, has got nice appeal to it, but yet don't want to spend the extra money, then I would strongly recommend the Malibu SS. You'll love it.
