This guy is missing the point.

If the last-gen Malibu was topping the list, what are the chances that GM would strive to make a worse vehicle?

The Century/Regal are being replaced. I would think that would automatically mean good things for the replacement.

How does this author think they can do long term reliability tests? Obviously they are LONG term? In the car industry things change. This guy most know that.

It's a fluff piece, not sure why his editor approved it.
Well, look at the reliability of the old rwd A-bodies (Cutlass Supreme) (later A-Special or G-body) compared to that of the FWD A-body (Cutlass Ciera).

Or, the current Mercedes E-class versus the last-generation 210 chassis model?

Ford Fairmont versus Ford Tempo anybody?

AMC Concord or Eagle Premier?

Ford Capri or Mercury Capri?

I am certain the new Malibu will be a more reliable car, but dips in quality have happened, and will continue to do so, somewhere...

Definately fluffy tho
