BigBlock45 5pts Mmm, rushing a car to market is never a good idea. That it comes only as a psuedo-hybrid -- gack! Whacking 5 inches out of the wheelbase makes me reconsider a purchase. It seems like Chevy is going small (Malibu), smaller (Cruze) and tiny (Sonic)!! I do hope when the LTZ model is offered, it comes ONLY with a 3.6 V6, and competent tires! And do make the titanium interior color available across the line! Re:malibu04: my parents have a 99 Mailbu that consistently gets 30mpg on the Interstates @ 70mph! Yes, its a 3.1 V6!
