I bought my 2007 Cobalt LS coupe in September of 2006 and I love it. The performance for the money ($12850) is mind blowing. The handling isn't too bad either. I can sling the passengers around and a tire never slips (not so much as a squak). Refined suspension and a fairly powerful (148 hp) stock engine make for one heck of a back road driving experience especially with the easy to operate 5-speed tranny! If stock isn't for you, don't worry, GM makes more than enough goodies for this car and if they won't do, think about it, this car is probably America's best compact car. Aftermarket companies are drooling right now!
Five speed! Decent radio with auto volume control. They come in yellow. Aftermarket parts buyers dream for sport compacts!
Better standard speakers (they're OK unless you crank it up)More GM performance for LS model. Change plastic shift boot mount to aluminum. Anything but plastic. Mine broke when I tried to change the shift boot. Not a hard fix, but I still wish I hadn't broke it
