PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The name of the game these days in family cars is simply mileage.  That is what the average consumer who is car shopping for transportation is looking for.

Safety and style come a bit later on the list but as gasoline nears that five buck a gallon mark, 450 miles on a tank of regular looks awful attractive.

Chevy has heard the masses and in addition to the compact and popular Cruze ECO they now introduce the Malibu ECO. Like the Cruze,  good mileage, lots of technology and an attractive package make the Malibu a must look at if you are in the family sedan market!
