Demon ride...with accoutrements

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


When I first stepped into the car I thought it was roomy - I'm 6'6". The seats were very fitting and finally a head rest that met the back of my head. The SS has everything you want - power across the board, not the seats though. Side airbags and a great steering wheel. I wish I had a manual telescoping option, but it's 20K so go figure. If I wanted wood on the dash and in the car, I should be in the backseat ala S500-EL or a Cadillac Deville-EL. I would recommend getting a two tone interior; red/black for victory red, gray/black for the sport tint - very nice combo's

Best Features

The engine is a marvelous. The injector's spray fuel into the piston's at around 2000PSI, vs a normal engine at 50-80psi. The turbo, handling and stereo are all great. This would be a great commuter car, but I use it as a grocery getter, around town etc.

Worst Features

Oil pressure guage lights on the rear view mirror auto-sensing rear view auto-sensing side mirrors (accessory is fine) more interior lights (think Malibu LTZ)
