2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
I bought car 1 year old with 20,000 kms on it. Then upgraded with GM Stage 2 & Catback exhaust, dual pass intercooler, short shifter, etc. I only drive this car 6 months a year as snow and salt in Eastern Ontario is a little excessive. However in the past three summers this car has driven to all but 2 of the 13 provinces in Canada and racked up 75,000 km (47,000 miles),of driving without any major issues. All in all great performance, good fuel economy (7.0 L/100 km or 33 mpg) on the highway if you use the cruise, and good stereo.
Acceleration, boost gauge, whine from supercharger under full throttle and exhaust on downshift or deceleration.
Front seats could use more thigh support on extended trips (6 hours plus legs get sore). Less hard plastic interior panels. Limited slip should be standard, not optional. Rear aero wing blocks 90% of rearward vision, revise design.
