It has a sunroof/moonroof combination.

2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS w/1LS

I absolutely love my Chevy Malibu. It runs great, it gets 28 mpg on average, it has heated seats on both the driver's seat and the passenger seat, and it has a sunroof/moonroof combination. The one thing that I wish my car did have is an aux cord. So many people nowadays listen to music off their phone so the only thing I would change about this vehicle is adding an aux cord to listen to my own music. I would highly recommend this car to anyone!

Comfortable, Economical and well worth the money!

2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS w/1LS

I love my little 4 door sedan it's good on gas and it's a smooth ride! Just let me know like anything you have to keep up with it's Health and should have no problems. After 100,000 it does need the power steering done and it's the more modern type so you can't just add the fluid yourself one of the main downfalls I guess!

A great car with great gas mileage and good sound system controlled 2 ways

2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS w/1LS

I love the car, It has ac, a CD player and a good radio. The steering wheel has buttons where you can switch stations on the radio or CD player. The lights can be on automatic and they come on when you start the car and stay on for a few minutes after you shut it off. Very comfortable and great gas mileage.

Looks good, and has great gas mileage

2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS w/1LS

Had the car since 06 and only taken it to the shop a few times. Seats are adjustable, rides smooth, no blind spots, good gas mileage. The only thing currently wrong with it is the transmission but it's from basic wear and tear. Would recommend this car to a used car buyer!
