The Chevrolet Prizm finished second in the compact car category behind the Toyota Corolla. Prizm, based on the Corolla platform, hasn't been sold since 2002.
the Chevy Prizm WAS a Toyota Corolla with a badge change....

The Cadillac Eldorado finished third behind the Lexus LS430 and Infiniti Q45 among luxury cars, but the Eldorado disappeared after the 2002 model year as well.
isn't the current Seville the same basic thing with a couple more doors?

The Chevy Malibu topped the entry-level midsize segment. Yet that's the last-generation Malibu replaced by a new generation for 2004, so the award winner is no longer sold.
the Malibu, if i'm not mistaken, is still sold, right? just as rental cars... i bet you could get one if you wanted it. you can buy cop cars, so why not?

STUPID STUPID ARTICLE. things in the auto industry change faster than ever now, no car will be exactly the same in 3 or 4 years any more. those that remain the same will lose sales to the ones that change.

  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.
however, we all know that many brand new models suffer first year quality issues, so just because a car is designed to be better doesn't always mean all the bugs are worked out in the first year.
