There was an article in C&D IIRC that theirs just broke down and would not start in traffic. It had to be towed.

Did you read my post ? N52 is ancient...Compare that N20 to a DI 6 from Honda or Toyota....Look at the trap speed, 5-60, 0-120 and so on and real world observed fuel economy.

The small turbo is not efficient enough nor designed to keep boost levels at those RPM's. It is impossible as the peak torque comes in so early. That is how these engines are designed on purpose. NA...

TrueCar average price paid for a 2.0T Malibu is around 28K in my area. I would probably be able to pick one up for 26K no problem with GM discounts. Nearly every econo family sedan offers a 2.0T with...

Yeah not even close. I have a 300/320 or so 2.0 T in my driveway that will blow the doors of a stock N20 328 but it is still nothing like the N52. The latter made maybe 250 crank hp on a cold day...

Nope. It can hardly outperform an ancient I6. There is nothing special about it in a world of 20K Chevy Malibu's offering the same thing.

.4 second difference 0-60 and 1/4 is hardly significant. I6 was ancient in comparison, if they updated it with DI/8 speed etc, it would have blown the doors off the N20. Unfortunately, they were...
