This makes me very happy, indeed. Only two Hondas, no Toyotas and three GMs
All is good in the world

Gm DID dominate that list.

GM cars-3
Honda cars - 2
Mazda - 2
VAG - 2
BMW - 1

Also look at it this way...only 2 Asians, 2 Europeans, and one American. Out of how many potential players?

But the big 6 speed manual 08 CTS got torn a new one by the Infiniti G and BMW 3, it did finish higher then the new Mercedes C300

Go figure the 252 HP slushbox gets into the top10.

As for the most improved car in that list, hands down the new Malibu. God the LTZ model is fabulous.

I've got no issues with my '06 Maxx...other than fading rims

I really like the look of the new Malibu. I like the look of the Saturn Aura better (what the new 'bu is based from).
