Well, I guess there is no reason to wait for an 09 since they won't be offering a sport red color. Ugh.
Not to mention the fact that you'll lose the adjustable pedals (if you care for those). Sport red's a pretty color though- that was what my Avalanche was.

That was the color I wanted, but ended up getting a black Avalanche because of what was in stock.

2009 pricing must be just around the corner...

I'm antsy and I've been keeping an eye on Dealerworld for pricing details. As of today, they've uploaded pricing for the 2009 Aveo and Colorado. A few days ago there were no 2009 models listed. Hopefully the Malibu pricing will be available soon.

Wow, I'm officially a nerd.

Why did they get rid of the power adjustable pedals? These were a great feature.
I agree, I hope this doesn't mean the telescoping steering wheel function is gone also. :(

Power Pedals are not a huge loss to me, although they would have been nice.

Wow! Check this out:

Highway mileage increases to 33 mpg with the 6T40 six-speed automatic that is standard in LTZ and 2LT models; and available on 1LT.

So how is it supposed to be getting 33mpg hwy now? Its not the same tranny used in the 4cylinder 6 speed LTZ's currently out? Is this a typo or have they changed something in the 2009 model?

I'm so glad I have an 08. I'm a tall guy and I want them as far away from me as possible. I also love having the side marker that disappeared as well.

They are referring to the MPG increasing from 30 MPG to 33 MPG in the 4 cylinder model by using a 6 speed as opposed to 4 speed.
