    If GM wants to hit 300,000 with their Malibu, they should appeal to the domestic-inclined buyer where Ford isn’t. Surveying some Chrysler-friendly zip codes on True Car for the 200, it looks like the V6 is the overwhelming choice, with AWD also quite popular (where I am, there were 27 sales last month, and 26 of them had the V6). Ford owns domestic efficiency. GM should try to recall the joie de vivre of cheap and cheerful plus power.

    Having purchased an Uglibu, which had exactly one thing that made me overlook the warts – the primitive acceleration of V6+4-speeds in a straight line – GM should stop guarding the dog that is the Regal and thinking they can outsmart everyone and make them buy the Impala, and they should offer a V6 and/or AWD in the Malibu.

      I really do think that GM wants the Impala to be the top seller again. Like it was in the 70s and 80s when everyone bought B-bodys.

      GM has a long history of saying “wait ’til you see the next gen, it’s going to be spectacular and will more than restore our lost market share”, and then delivering another POS that can’t match the competition, and doesn’t achieve its lofty goals.

      I’d like to think that the new Malibu will break the second part of this truism, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

    I guess I was wrong to believe the Silicon Valley types were deeply concerned about global warming. Gddmn denialists.
