Reliable long distance commuter

I owned this car for 150k miles. No major work needed during that time. I believe car would've run to 200k or 250k without any issues. I recommend this car to anyone who needs a stable vehicle and doesn't mind the dated styling.


not bad for its price

it runs really smooth but its gas mileage is so low. The A/C takes a long time to make inside cold. Also, I didn't like its transmission.


Ideal for me and family

I really enjoy my 2006 Chevy Malibu. It's stylish, good on gas, price was right, great on long trips, comfortable and so far thankful that I haven't had any major problems until about a month ago. It gets stuck in park. Took it to the dealer and seems like it's the cylinoid (?). Costing me $500.00 mostly labor of course. Only other issue was having my stereo system replaced but I still enjoy my sporty car. It's a keeper at least for now. Almost 91,000 miles on it.


Most reliable car I owned

This car is driving very good and really easy. I like the car. Is really comfortable. Never has mechanical defects.


Pre-owned - Still Stylish and Reliable

I researched and drove similar cars of the same age (different makes/models) that didn't perform or look as good as this one. For an older, pre-owned vehicle this car has definitely kept its value!


Car for my daughter on her way to SIU-E

It's a great car it's exactly what we needed the price was great . We also got a great interest rate, great payment, and the warranty


The best car ever and this what first pick

The Malibu is my first car and I love it. Also, the car is good with gas and I can put 20.00 in a tank and use it for 2 days before refilling it up. If you are looking for a reliable car that looks nice and drive good. The Malibu has good brake in it and you will love it.


Reliable Car!

Overall this has been a good car! I bought it used with 163,000 miles on it! Nothing but regular maintenance! Three recalls which were fixed at no cost to me! This is a good little car! I have over 245,000 miles on it now owning it for over 4 years now!


Super Reliable Car

I love my Malibu! It may not be the most stylish vehicle, but it's gotten me to college and back for years and has never given me any major issues! I have 325,000 miles on it and it still runs like new!


Good , reliable car if taken care of.

Simple repairs and a couple recalls were the only trouble from this car. All other expenses were tires, oil , gas. This vehicle is a four cylinder 2.2 ecotec Chevrolet Malibu LT. Drives smooth and fuel efficient. plenty of space in the trunk and for passengers.
