2006 Chevrolet MalibuNot-a-lemon-lover - Williamsport, PA01/21/2011
I bought this car new, and initially loved it. Until it had 56,000 miles on it. Then the troubles began. The electric steering system failed, and had to be replaced $1500. The gas gauge broke. I still haven't fixed it. I was told it would cost probably around $500 or more to do this. Now the coolant level light is coming on for the third time. Coolant is going somewhere. I'm told another expensive repair is right around the corner. The car now has 88,000 miles on it. I've noticed that all the other people who left reviews only owned their cars for a short period of time. I would suggest anyone considering a malibu look up some of these issues and see what others are experiencing with the malibu. Most of us are not happy.
I originally planned on keeping this car to at least 150,000 miles, but I can't afford to. I must say, though, they do get good gas mileage, but all the repairs offset the savings.

2006 Chevrolet MalibuMajor Birdpoop - Omaha, NE04/02/2010
Was looking for a good car to get back and forth to work in plus be capable of hauling the kids around when needed. I was a little reluctant to consider the Malibu at first, but the 2006 Malibu LT had everything I was looking for at a great value in price. After test driving it, I was convinced it would be my next car. The 3.5L V6 has great power giving the Malibu some serious zip! The seats and the ride could be a little more comfortable, but those are really my only complaints. The LT was packed with features making the car even more fun. I'm not exactly a huge fan of the exterior styling, but it's still a handsome looking car. I guess the biggest thing for me was it was exactly the car I needed at that point in my life and was listed at a very reasonable price. Would definitely recommend!
