2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2.0L Supercharged from North America
Good looks, needs more power!
Check engine light came on at 1000kms..Dealership replaced fuel cap hasn't come on since.
I bought this car almost fully loaded, only option I didn't get was the Recaro seats and limited slip.
Well this car handles like a real sports car and the Pzero tires that come from the factory on the 18"wheels make it stick to the ground when cornering.
Acceleration feels underpowered, this car is not fast by any means... i was disappointed in its performace (should of gotten an SRT-4) but I will soon be purchasing the stage2 chip from GM that supposively gives you an extra 50hp.
The tires have a lot of wheel spin and are narrow (only 215wide I believe). I test drove a demo car at the dealership with limited slip and it didn't make much of a difference.
Suspension is great... rides a lot smoother than I thought it would. Not rough at all.
Interior is nice I have the black leather and seats are supportive/comfortable.
So for the sticker price of $24000 canadian it came to just over $30000 after taxes... I would NEVER spend this much on a car like this. So whoever is in the market to buy one get used!!! I'm sure in a year or two the price of a used SS will be lower than $20000 easily. GM cars never hold there value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I myself wouldn't own a Cavelier/Cobalt. I have a friend that made the mistake of buying a new one, nothing, but headaches. Talk about slow, poor handling, and sloppy driving... he drove my brother's Scion TC and will be trading the GM thing soon at the Toyota dealer.

My friend had a toyota. He said it was slow, a chick car, an appliance, couldn't handle, and it sounded like a dying chicken. My friend is also every domestic manufacturer's advertising manager so you can see he's quite biased.
(don't put down a car you've never driven or owned!)
