May the best car win? Uh, not this one.

2009 Chevrolet Malibu LS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The 09 Chevy Malibu is a huge leap forward for GM, and it is world better than past GM cars I have driven. However, now that I have had it for 18 months or so, the problems have begun to appear, and the dealer (Royal Chevy in NJ) has been zero help. Now my dash lights don't work and that means NO speedometer. The right turn signal doesn't cancel itself, and it sounds like something is loose in the left front wheel well. Are these terrible, debilitating problems? Nope. But as I also drive a 3y/o Honda CR-V and 4 y/o Mazda Miata, the comparisons are striking. No problems at all with the Honda or Mazda and both drive much more smoothly.
Favorite Features
Good handling. Nice exterior style.
Suggested Improvements
Engine/trans software mapping is poor, so that engine is not responsive at all. Quality not on par with Japanese brands.
