Great gas mileage for a mid-size. You can apply the money you save on gas to pay for the transmission rebuild. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

2006 4dr Hatch 201-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
To get something close in horsepower, you need a 6 cylinder and the inherently lower fuel economy that comes with that vs. a 4 cyl. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
