G8 is a nice car but you can't get Navigation or a lot of the other little tech goodies I would expect from a car in that class. The Malibu is the same as an Aura and not that great (but certainly a decent car). My friend has a C6 and it's fun but I really don't see the appeal. The CTS is nice but heavy, nothing innovative in my opinion. VUE is alright but just another crossover. Astra had potential but it's expensive and lightly equipped. Camaro, Cruze, and Volt could be sweet if GM ever sells them here.

Ford has the Fusion Hybrid, Escape Hybrid, Flex, F-Series, and the new Mustang. They also have Sync which had made the ****ty Focus popular still. Plus there is the Fiesta and Kuga in the short pipeline.

I haven't driven a new one so no comment.
