    2006 Chevrolet Malibu MAXX

    Not worth the money

    Pros: The cargo space

    Cons: Reliability

    I bought my Maxx used and have had nothing but problems from the moment I drove it off the lot. The ignition system fails to start the vehicle at some very inopportune moments due to an interlock with the security system that won't allow ignition. And there is a popping noise in the steering column that no one can find.

    2006 Chevrolet Malibu MAXX - SS

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Radio

    Advice: Take it for a spin

    I've been driving this car since Dec.'05 and she is running great! It's a lot more fun to drive than I would have expected. Exterior fit and is trimmed well, while the interior is roomy and very functional. Nice interior trim as well. Dash instrumentation is easy to see and clean looking, but the radio buttons are a little much. Could have used more gears, but it's quite peppy with its 240HP 3.9 V6 engine. There is a lot to like about this car...but too bad GM wants to discontinue it next year. Its affordable, highly functional, and sporty too! Haven't had this much fun in years. People comliment it all the time, and there are many headturns when its in the parking lot. Too bad that there are no aftermarket parts yet and Chevy missed the boat on that one as well. Go out and get one before they are all gone.. this one is a keeper!

    2006 Chevrolet Malibu MAXX - SS

    Pros: I really like all the features ... the onstar the xm radio and dvd player

    Cons: Tranny and brakeing

    Advice: This car seems to be a pretty good buy for the money.

    Could have better brakes and transmision. But over all not a a bad car. Never really get a chance to check horse power and connering with test drives. This car has a very smooth ride to it. I wish they would have made a manual stick. I hate automatics.
