The Malibu is not a sporty sedan. It feels a bit too big, too soft, and too easy to drive. It's not a "boat" by any means, but I would say the Malibu is closer to a Buick Allure than a Honda Accord. If you want comfort, roominess, a quiet cabin, and good value, the Malibu four-cylinder is a good choice. But if you want an athletic sedan, you'll have to look elsewhere.

"Allure" is a far better name than "LaCrosse". What were they thinking anyhow?

Is a Lu-Le-La name scheme that important?

and BTW - the Allure is a nice car inside and out, and the owners love them. Too bad it takes such a bad rap.

My french-Canadian buddy told me he had never heard the term before.
Maybe he should go out more often.

"C'est de la crosse" = rip-off
" je me crosse" = .. you guessed it :)

Very true. I live in Canada and this was pure marketing B.S. Someone thought French Canadians would be offended by the name LaCrosse but almost nobody knows the term. It also happens to be the name of our national sport so what gives.

Someone in Marketing just wanted to make a deal of it to promote their own career. Nobody else gives a crap; it should of had the same name as the U.S. version.
