It's really hard to take this question seriously when you don't give us specific information about your car such as what engine and transmission you have. I submit that you should think our your question more before you ask it.

I'm going to assume that you have the 2.4L engine with automatic and my guess is that you have a lot of room for improvement in your driving.

That is simply because that car probably has a 3.8 liter V6 in it, which is one of the best engines GM has ever had.
