Will be considering the 2010 models. 4cyl A/T sedans only.

Don't like the current Toyota Camry, its ugly.

Honda Accord has more HP than the altima.

Altima has the CVT which I'm far from sold on.

Government motors Malibu has On Star and other black box tech i dislike.

I drove the Malibu as a rental one time. If this is GMs flagship sedan then they need to stop producing vehicles. The car kinda looks good at first, but the longer you look at it the uglier it gets. The interior looks high quality at first, but it's really really cheaply made and put together.

I second that, had one for a rental and I was happy as hell to get my accord back. Everything was really cheap and the steering made a popping noise when you turned the wheel. Seat material was cheap and abrasive.

I would get a Civic if I were getting a Honda, better gas mileage and nearly the same size car. My dad has a 2008 Honda Accord EX with the 4cyl and its nothing special and doesn't really get that good of gas mileage.

Nissan could be out of business.
Honda built by non-union Americans in AL, OH.

How about the new Mazda 6? I haven't driven one, but it is a sharp looking car.

Even before I saw the poll options, I had the Honda Accord in my mind.

That's the one that I would go for.

We have a 2006 model EX 4 cyl. It gets 35 mpg on the highway. Even with the 4 banger, it doesn't seem under powered.

The accord to me has always looked good. Honda designers make them look like a modern, stylish car, without any over the top, funky angles, that will date the car in 5 years.

Of your choices the Honda. I'd say Malibu but I'm also biased.

No hard choice here, Honda.

I have one now as a rental. The 4cyl auto is pretty gutless, the interior is meh, and it makes a bunch of rattling and popping noises.

Got the altima as a rental. The cvt takes a little getting used to.
I guess it is considered a full size now, but I figured it was a mid.

The luggage I took on the trip all fit in the trunk of my 06 jetta tdi, but I had to stuff some of it in the cabin of that altima.

So I was not impressed.

I give you, other as well. The 09 jetta tdi is bascially the same as my 06. gets a tax rebate, and if it is anything like mine, get 35mpg real driving around town with a lead foot.

You can't go wrong with a Honda.

Honda by far

If youre trying to get the most hp out of a N/A 4 cylinder, you might as well just get the V6. Alot of the time the mileage isn't a huge difference.

Id look into the 2010 ford fusions...Best looking Car ford has ever made, in my opinion.
