If I had the money, I'd get an '09. Decontented slightly, but Bluetooth connectivity makes up for that. Plus, the extra MPGs sound good too.

Thanks PizzaMan - Greatly appreciated....

Just thought it would be interesting to see how the trim models roll out now that there is a year or more of them being on the market.

Why no 2LT in the poll?

Voted. I have owned a 2008 2LT since March, and I am enjoying every minute.

I've owned my 08 LTZ since early March too. A few minor quibbles so far (haven't posted in the problems topic, since I only recently noticed them), but nothing to keep me from being extremely satisfied with my choice of cars and powertrains.

I ended going with an '08 2LT. After testing out a LTZ with the 4 cyl/6 speed and not being overly impressed I decided to snap up from a nearby dealer a 2LT that was the only one within a 300 mile radius that matched my main options. For me the '09 with its deletions only had the slightly improved gas mileage and bluetooth which I couldn't justify.

If everything goes as planned I will be buying an 09 LTZ. We are still deciding on a 4 or 6 cylinder though.
Go with the 6, the milage isn't that much less and IMO after driving the 4 v. the 6 there is no compairing the two.

I made my usual run through my dealer's lot yesterday looking for a Spring Package car, and as usual, there are none. However, the salesman told me three things:

1) The have a couple on order
2) He's driven one already- but thinks that it seems too shift-happy. He actually preferred the 4 cyl / 4 AT, even though they were told that the 6 speed actually has lower low gearing and taller top gears (so overall better range, in theory, and still more closely spaced to keep the 4 better in it's powerband).
3) He said I'd like my 3.6 MUCH better, especially since most of my driving is highway (also told him about my fuel economy so far- at 28-32 for the range, and he pretty much expected that).

I'm still going to go for a test ride in one once they get it. Not to buy it (never planned to). Just so I actually have knowledge of what I'm talking about, when other folks ask my opinion (and being the local car geek, it happens a lot).
