Just bought my Cobalt SS over the weekend, so haven't had it long enough to give it a true rating on gas mileage or reliabilty. That being said, car is great looking and fun to drive, and for what you get, the price can't be beat. Not an econobox, roomy interior (I'm 6 ft tall) up front, good handling and performance. Pioneer 200 watt stereo with sub-woofer is awesome. Good sized trunk, sunroof, this car has everything. With my trade- in (98 Mustang conv. V-6) GM rebate ($1000) and dealer discount, drove it away for $16,400.....unbeleivable. One note, I noticed that Chevy says the center console-armrest is not an option on this model (only on the LT & LTZ), yet mine has one?
hmmm....the Pioneer stereo with XM radio, fit, finish, performance (much better then the Mustang V-6)
The view out the back with the inside rearview mirror is a bit limited.
