2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)

Review

This car has it all! I'm getting over 24 mpg, it accelerates like a sports car, goes around corners like it's on rails, is loaded with equipment, and looks great to boot! The best all around car I have ever owned (and I've owned over 30)by far. Plus I got it for less than $18,000 after incentives and GM card rebates. Proof that there is hope for GM after all, if they can only build more cars with this level of performance and value in one package.

It's Worth it!

Review

I had a WRX before the SS. Although the WRX runs better test numbers, everyday driving wasn't as fun as the SS, because there wasn't much going on below 4000 RPM. I don't know about everyone else, but American engines always hold a place in my heart because of low end torque. L.E.T. is what I find fun when I'm driving around. I drove an S2000 a while back and although it was a "refined" car (whatever that means), I didn't feel that great about it because just driving around, it was like driving an old Civic. Why? Because you have to rev that engine up to the sky to have fun. High RPM is cool for the track, but I'll take torque from a car like the Cobalt SS when I'm going to the store.

This car performs with cars 2 or 3 times the cost. It is fun to drive and gets excellent gas mileage. I am averaging around 27 mpg (city and highway combined). A real affordable sporty car.

Review

Great car. Fun to drive. Comfy and accomodating interior. The exterior is sporty, yet livable. Ergonomics are great, nothing is out of reach. The shifter fits perfectly in your hand and requires only short throws. Effortless clutch activation and great brakes! No need to rev to the red line for power, the supercharger has almost no lag and kicks in low in the rpm range for great torque at low rpm's. Shifter sometimes feels a bit spongy and hesitant, but overall, a great car, worthy of its SS insignia. Only 91 or above octane fuel on this car, anything less is a waste. 93 octane fuels work a miracle on this little four-banger. Not faster than the SRT-4 but certainly much more civilized and refined.

Review

Have only owned the car for a little while. You get a lot of car for the price. Good gas mileage. Perfect for a young person wanting a sporty car at a cheap price. Ride quality is much better than I expected out of a small car. I have always had good service out of GM's four cylinder engines. Much better than the v-6's.

It's fast, fun, and corners great! It looks good as well. It's about time Chevrolet put out something that's affordable and fast.

Sporty, But Not SS Material.

Review

It was a fun ride, but still not SS material, I have never thought of a SS tag on a four-cylinder car, and after driving this, I don't think the SS tag belongs on it, maybe if it was a 6 cylinder but no little 4 banger, if I were chevrolet, I'd never produce the SS version for this car, and maybe give up the SS tag because nothing they put the tag on lives up to its name. Maybe they should think about putting it on the corvette
