    Yep. I'm debating between a CTS SportWagon or 9-5 SC. Just got word that the 9-5 SC won't show up until Winter 2011. And I'm looking to buy in July/August. So, I'm torn.

    The Equinox LTX is too basic.
    Chevrolet has a negative image.
    The CTS Coupe is not luxury.

    But...

    a Pontiac G6, that fits you perfectly. Luxurious, Pontiac's positive image, not basic.

    Or... if only you could get an Ion or Aura instead of a basic Cruze or Malibu.

    Thanks for letting us know what GM's problem is.

    I get his anger, I really do...but to say Cadillac is not a luxury brand anymore is really reaching.

    I really really really want my next new car to be a GM product. Really.

    But, it's tough. I need a large car. I need a large trunk in that car. I want RWD. I don't want to spend more than $30,000.

    I'm going to give very serious consideration to the LaCrosse eAssist. But, its small trunk and FWD configuration are really big obstacles. Baby stuff takes a lot of room in a car, so trunk space is paramount. To have a car as large as the LaCrosse have such a small trunk is just baffling--especially when it's front-wheel drive and, therefore, doesn't have as much suspension/drivetrain parts back there competing for space as in a rear-wheel-drive vehicle.

    Reading his comments about possibly skipping performance version of the new Malibu makes me think my hopes of getting an affordable midsize performance sedan with lots of goodies in the GM stable are likely doomed.

    Don't have kids yet(unless you count our lab) to mandate a midsize over a compact, so the Verano T might still be the choice. over a Kia or something.

    I'm surprised that we haven't seen any feedback on this comment:

    The Cruze Eco’s 42 mile per gallon EPA highway rating is likely to surpass the smaller, lighter Sonic’s “around 40” number. The final drive ratios are different, and the cars are intended to serve different markets.
    Reuss also mentions that the Sonic is designed to address the sporty small car segment, which makes the likelihood of seeing a performance version of the Cruze seem slim.

    You would be a good candidate for the G8, I sincerely hope GM brings the Zeta sedan to Chevrolet ASAP.

    I had hoped for a performance version as well, a Malibu SS like the two generations ago Malibu SS.

    The Cruze 2LT already pulls .87G on the skidpad and has a better slalom speed ( 62 mph) than anything in the immediate class( in a recent comparison test). I would imagine with more and better tires it would have no problem matching the .92G of the Cobalt SS.

    Ya Buick61, you should rush out and buy one of those brand new Zeta Sedans that we have been posting about since 2004... I'll take mine, with nav, park assist, back up camera, blutooth, adaptive cruse, magnetic shocks, memory package, heated and cooled leather in all seat and a 12 speaker sound system. Dark Sapphire Blue with a medium gray interior.

    Big mistake. Not many adults will want to buy a Sonic. Goofy name, goofy gauges, too small, etc etc.
    GM needs to wise up and wake up at the same time

    I fall into the adult category and I find the Sonic to be quite compelling.

    The issue is whether or not it's feasible to attempt to be all things to all people. The incremental engineering strategy that he refers to was largely responsible for putting the company into the dumpster.

    All of that is available on the Zeta platform, personally in his shoes I would and have considered a G8 GT. Unfortunately the fire sale closed brand prices have yet to materialize or I would buy one.

    It would be very interesting to see how Ford's and GM's distinct strategies in the compact/sub-compact segments play out.

    The last C170 program (Focus) saw gradual elimination of the bodystyles over the years
