    Well, GM could have asked us to vote for the look. Had they put the Holden fascia on the Chevy, I would have been applauding GM. The way it is now, I felt like laying in bed and staying there. Why do they do this? The Chevrolet Orlando concept actually looked cool and futuristic. Then they came out with it and not only did they come out with a completely ghey version of it, it's not even available in AWD. The new Malibu was also not even different enough from the old version to even identify it on the road when you see one. If they gave it the Impala grill, I could tell if I saw a new one on the road. GM never even had a poll here asking people if they wanted the Astra GTC or OPC in North America.

    Whatever. I don't want to be seen as a complainer. I just wanted to vent. I've had it.

    So the market position and limited options should have come as no surprise to anyone on GMI, right? Especially with how few GM is looking to sell every year.

    And yet they limit it to an automatic only.
    The CTS-V wagon can get a manual but not the top of the line Chevy SS?!

    Re: To the SS Doubters...

    I wonder if the SS will be relatively rare, and if it will be as rare as the manual transmission Opulent Blue Metallic CTS-V wagon that I have recently been considering?
