2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
After 3 weeks and some 1800 miles my Cobalt and I have come to know what to expect from each other. This mild mannered compact rocket is a solid commuter at about 32mpg at average highway speeds of 70-80mph. What is truly surprising is that when you need a little burst of excitement or feel the need to circumnavigate the occasional left lane obstacle, a quick crack to 3rd and back to 4th makes you want to kiss your sales man for suggesting you test drive the S/C. As for the responsive handling, considering the base model is the offspring of the Caviler it is a blast to drive even with some mild under steer. Style is 1st rate in the sport compact class. Only one bad thing, GM why no S/C in 2008?
32mpg hwy! 205 hp! 200 lb-ft torque! <$25,000! General Motors Performance Parts support for after market dealer installed upgrades that don't void the factory warranty! The big smile you get while driving it.
Keep building the thing! What is with GM, they are killing the Cobalt SS and SS S/C after only 3 years but the Pontiac Vibe lives on since introduced in '02? Has anyone ever bought a Colorado or Sierra because they liked their styling, how can you screw up considering how hot the Tahoe is?
