"GM's 2.4L is a nice little engine, definitely one of the best 4 bangers around!" ------- (Compared to what vehicle???????)
Kindly be advised that I own a 2010 four cylinder Chevrolet LTZ Malibu and a 2007 XLE V6 Toyota Camry. ---- I have also owned a 2003 four cylinder Honda Accord!
The Malibu four cylinder engine does not come close in terms of performance and MPG as a Honda engine! ---- The truth is that GM is not capable of building a "high quality four cylinder engine!" ------ The GM engine lacks "passing power at 60 mph", and it does not get the advertised fuel mileage. ---- (This translates into the engine being a fraud!) ---- I have 8000+ miles mileage on my new four cylinder Malibu, and I am VERY UNHAPPY with the fuel mileage numbers, and the quality of the original equipment tires! ------- (My Honda & Camry came with mileage friendly Michelin tires.) ---- The fit and finish of the vehicle is GREAT, but the performance is not up to a Honda, Toyota of a Hyundai four cylinder vehicle. ---- GM did not do their homework on this vehicle! ----- They have the basis of a GREAT vehicle, but they did not finish the job! ------ Wake Up GM! ----- The foreign name plates are building better engines! ----- Why?
Best regards. ---------- Dwayne

There is so many variables with any used cars Toyotas, Hondas, or anything else. Was it wrecked, how old is it, how many miles, what accidents, how well was it maintained, etc... BTW If you feel like a celebrity driving 2005 Honda accord with 121000 miles, there is definitely something wrong with your understanding what real celebrities drive.

Has anyone who bought a Malibu tested the Altima? My 25,000 miles 09 Cobalt coupe looks nice but is full of rattles. I don't know that I want to have the same problem with a new Malibu.
