2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
This is my first econo car since I bought a Pinto in 1978. I'm not crazy about FWD but it has real grunt and I've found it easy to hot rod. I also feel good about saving a couple Americans their jobs and while the quality isn't what I'm used to, neither is a 22k sticker. All in all I'd consider another Cobalt but I would prefer RWD.
The brakes on my car are outstanding! The seats are great as well.
6-Speed, RWD, more instrumentation, interior upgrade option.
