    Hi Tiger:

    ___For all the engineering capability of the GM Corporation, the Aveo (Daewoo), Ion (think vanilla ice cream w/ green ketchup on it - Yuccchhhh!), Vibe (Toyota Matrix/hopped up Corolla w/ lower FE), and the Impala or Malibu contingent (boring and cheap) do absolutely nothing for me! When in CA. last week, we rented a Malibu w/ just 297 miles on it and although I loved its tranny (GM makes the best in the business imho), the rest of the car told me bargain basement … We nailed 34 mpg over 109 miles with > ½ of that in some of the worst nightmare traffic downtown San Francisco, Oakland, and Alameda had to offer as well as many < 5 minute trips. Not bad but not that great either. An Escape HEV or Prius would have killed it. I was thinking of doing a write up on that Malibu but the seats are so far below what I am used to in the Ranger P/U let alone the Accord and just about anything else I have sat in lately, it wasn’t worth my time :(

    ___Now if they placed the Dual Mode in a Pontiac G6 with a 3 + kWh pack, they would have my utmost attention. IIRC, the G6 will get the BAS but not Dual Mode :(

    ___Good Luck
