With all the new cars coming on the market especially those claiming awesome gas mileage (40's and up) I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone would consider buying another car other than the Malibu. No I am not a "trader" I was just putting it out there to see what you all thought. If you had to buy something else what would it be?

IF I could afford the gas I'd buy a 2008-9 Chevy Avalanche. If money were no option I'd have a porsche 911 turbo carrera.

Realistically....for me I would look at Mazada's or Ford's....Still can't bring myself to drive a Honda or Toyota....However if money were no option or I didn't worry about gas....It would the new GMC Yukon Hybrid.....Have always really liked these.

If gas were still reasonable I'd be driving an 08 LTZ Avalanche. That is a nice truck. But with the Malibu LTZ I got all the features (but not the utility)paid about 12K less and get pretty good fuel economy.

As for other makes I like:
Dodge Charger SRT8 and R/T
Nissan Altima and Maxima
Pontiac G8
Solstice
GMC Acadia
Buick Enclave
and the Ford Fusion

I absolutely hate Toyota and Honda.

I would be interested in owning a Malibu Hybrid, perhaps a 2010 model (assuming there would be 'advances' in battery technology by then).

The all new version of the Mazda6 is an awesome machine too....but it wasnt going to be out until later this year so I ordered an 09 bu.

Oh, I forgot about the Fusion I looked at and drove....its very nice and that new SYNC for the phone etc is likely the best Microsoft product I have ever seen. I was going to get it until I heard the new 09 bu has going to have some type of Bluetooth.

But they will all have to go quite a ways to beat the Ford SYNC set up.

I'm with you on the CVT transmission but I have a co-worker with a Morano (i think that what it's called)and raves about the CVT.

Planning on replacing either the Sonoma or Envoy in the near future...gas is starting to kill my wallet. I'll probably get a GMC Terrain or Chevy Traverse in 2011 or so. Or if I get rid of the Sonoma, I'll get a GMC Canyon or Sierra 1500 Ext. Cab. Hopefully the 4.5L Duramax will be available then.
