I am going to drive it for a month and then see how things are going in regards to seat comfort. If needed, I will then look at making some custom adjustments to seat.

I agree. Without paying for the Premium trim level, these packages provide remote start, heated front seats, power and lumber on both driver and passenger, color driver info screen, upgraded 8" color touch-screen display, lots of things covered in leather, and 9 speaker Bose system.

Chevy also provides, free of charge, 5 months of the premium OnStar plan and 5 years of the basic plan- which includes phone app allowing car to be remotely started/stopped, locked/unlocked, from anywhere.

This is news to me, but apparently a lot of car manufacturers are eliminating the extra weight of a spare tire and giving car buyers a can of Fix-A-Flat and a small air compressor. I had neither in the trunk. The spare tire kit from dealers cost between $250 and $300. I'll be checking the local junk yards next week and the kits are also available on Amazon and ebay. I never thought about checking for a spare tire.

The Malibu I purchased has spare tire.

So as long as the well off people owning the company get paid it's all good. Workers who need jobs, don't care about them? Sorry, I will have to say in this instance your logic is flawed. Now, what percentage of shareholders in these companies are is the US would be another great question.

lol clearly 'merican

From Wikipedia:

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (abbreviated as FCA) is an Italian-American corporation and currently the world’s Eighth largest auto maker.[5] The group was established in late 2014 by merging Fiat and Chrysler into a new holding company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (with headquarters in London) for tax purposes. The holding company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and Borsa Italiana in Milan.[6] Exor S.p.A, an Italian investment group controlled by the Agnelli family, owns 29.19% of FCA and controls 44.31% through a loyalty voting mechanism.[7]
