Why would someone that would consider driving a Cobalt have anything meaningful to say about a Mustang. If you have convinced yourself that the Cobalt is a better car, you are misguided but good for you. All of us that truely understand what a Mustang is about care what a Cobalt owner has to say.

Chevy is dying to come back anyways and there new cobalt is no match for the mustang. so I don't know how it is a better car then the mustang. the mustang is a true sports car not to be compared to a family sedan with a v6 engine.

True, you can't compare the Mustang to the Cobalt, but you should also know that the Cobalt doesn't come with a V-6 option.

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR CUBIC INCHES!!
The Mustang is a fast car, burns rubber forever, sounds great, drives great, handles and brakes decently, what more do you want for the price?? I'd take a 'Stang any day over a Cobalt.

The SS's engine is under a lot of stress to make it's power meaning more repairs down the road. Sure it could last if you drive the car grandma speed, but most will not. The Mustang's engine will last longer and you will not have to deal with as much torque steer from the front because of RWD.

There is little real competition for the V-8 Mustang. Some less reliable Japanese imports might almost match its performance, but at a cost of about 10 grand more. True, the Cobalt SS is a great car, and very fast. One magazine described it as the "fastest front drive car they had tested", making it even faster than the awesome (and now defunct) Neon SRT. However, the Cobalt SS costs as much as the Mustang GT and is not in the same class by any stretch of the imagination. NO front-drive compact, foreign or domestic, possesses the quality, handling, and passion of a real muscle car like the Mustang. I've owned 6 Mustangs and only traded my last one because the 11 miles per gallon was no longer practical. I'll miss it, but not the high gas cost.

You see, heres what I don't get. I have a 2005 Ford Mustang GT, and I bash the hell out of it. since I've owned it, I've put in 2 sets of tires, because I like my burnouts and racing on the track. and yet, I haven't had a single problem with anything. so, being that I drive my mustang like a maniac on the track, and also the open, deserted roads (never when people are around) and my car has been perfectly reliable and runs as good as day one, it makes me wonder what this fellow must have done to his mustang to make it behave such as it is. my friend owns a 2002 mustang GT, with 56000 miles on her and he hasn't had any problems with it! and I also have 23000 miles on mine.
Makes me wonder...

Why wasting time debating COBALT SS vs MUSTANG GT.. The Mustang GT will always be better in every aspects hands down.. I am not an Oval fan, but a General. My friend has a 5 speed 2005 convertible GT and he never successed beating my 2000 TRANS AM even with some mods. Sure you will say let's bring the mustang COBRA and then I will say bring the FIREHAWK or GTO. dollar for dollar and stock against stock I think the general is still ahead. I have to say that Mustangs are easier and cheaper to mod,. Now let's debate with real pony and no v6 or 4 cyl. or FWD and have fun...thanks.
