2006 Chevrolet Malibu SS

2006 Chevrolet Malibu SS

Enlarge Photo

The mid-size front-drive Malibu sedan and its longer hatchback counterpart, the Malibu Maxx, are based on General Motors' "Epsilon" global architecture, which also provides the basis for the sportier Saab 9-3 and Pontiac G6. New for 2006 are SS versions fitted with a 240-horsepower 3.9-liter V-6 with variable valve timing, mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode and adaptive shift control. The SS also comes with 18-inch flangeless wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and specific exterior and interior trim. Meanwhile, the sedan comes powered in its base form by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces a just-adequate 145 horsepower. A 3.5-liter V-6 that produces a quicker 200 horses is available on the sedan and comes standard on the hatchback. Anti-lock brakes and traction control are offered as a combined option. Front-side airbags are standard on both the LS and LT versions and are optional on the base model. For 2006, a new dual-port grille identifies standard Malibu models, while a number of interior enhancements are said to add refinement.

Too low to the ground on the outside grill work. Less visibility than our 2002. Constantly bump our heads getting in and out of the car. I'm short and cannot get the driver's seat close enough to the pedals to... + More »

My experience with 2015 Malibu after 20k km's (or 13k miles) has been positive. I think this is a very under-appreciated car, particularly given the hype about 2016 model and current pricing. I actually love... + More »

This automobile is equal to ones worth three times the sale price. Malibu is a great looking car with unbelievable fuel mileage. The interior is expansive, and seats comfortable.

Averages 23 mpg. 36 is advertised and only possible if going down hill all day long. The brake assist that down shifts for you helps erode the mpg as well. try to coast when gaining on someone and you feel the... + More »
