2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Car is engaging, it communicates through the steering wheel, suspension and exhaust sound. It does not attract attention, the interior does not communicate (steering wheel blocks freeway speeds and generally no useful notification system, trust onStar). Step on the throttle and it accelerates very quickly, no 'bad boy' behavior, just the rush. On curves, following instinct only, the posted speed limit is generally exceeded (significantly). As a passenger, it is a Chevy Cobalt. It's not a great family car, except that everyone in the family wants to drive it.
Steering, suspension and acceleration are world class. The brakes inspire confidence.
Set and save driver settings for seat, mirrors etc. Transmission is good, but should be more slick (yes, Honda Civic SI like).
