That's just the Bluetooth...and how it's worded in GM literature for what it does. Again with the Navigation, it's something a few out of thousands ever even want in competitive sedans who offer it, the Aura/Malibu don't support a current GM system, and the Turn-by-Turn is great as is except for the few people who must have a screen.

And yes, the 6-speed across the board is great, but as I said in the post above, the 3.5L was a solid performer...but just not what the Aura needed or should have had to do well. No budget V6, but rather two highly refined and sophisticated 4-cyl and V6 combo's with a 6-speed.
