    I thought the Cobolt SS's are already supercharged.

    If it isn't already supercharged than you can buy one direct from GM.

    www.gm.com, search for performance parts.

    guys, guys, those thing are pieces of sh#t. So you get a little power for a cheap price, ITS STILL A CHEAPLY MADE UNRELIABLE GM. My cousin bought one and has had it recalled twice, not to mention the clutch went after like 10,000km and the technician said it was " installed backwards" The spoiler is gay, the rims suck, the interior is still cheap gm. Why? why would you get sucked in by some short term fun and end up replacing it with something better anyway? sorry to rant, but I'm tired of seeing losers rip by in their cheap fast cars thinking they're so cool. Everybody still sees its a caviqueer, and the same goes for the neon. How about making your own fun toy, maybe being original? Not selling out for immediate power in a crappy package. I'm sure someone will rag me out.

    I believe that those are non supercharged ones. The only one i've seen on the lot so far is a yellow one at Shaganappi and I bet that ones already sold.

    I'm just of the opinion that every time gm released a new model in like the last 15 years that they always turned out to be pieces of junk. You get what you pay for. When was the last time you saw a 10 year old cavalier, sunfire,sunbird,corsica,lumina,etc etc in good shape driving around? A lot less than honda,toyota,nissan, hell even ford tempos and topaz are still going strong. I just don't see the hype for the cobalt other that the power, not to mention the style is supergay.

    I agree with most of that, but there is NO WAY a Tempo/Topaz can touch the reliability of a V6 Cavalier, SUnbird, corsica, lumina etc. etc. (even my 4 banger Corsicas a reliable solid car...albeit boring) If you can afford the alternators (or just be smart and buy one ICEBERG and never have to replace it again) you won't have a problem. Although I agree with you on the Cobalt for the most part....I like the exterior design...but as any GM, a bit of care for fit and finish would go a long way...plus the interior is still in fact cheap (never sat in an SS, but I did sit in one of the fully optioned with leather etc. sedans, and wow, my 13 year old 240sx beats it out in quality)

    thats basically what i'm getting at. I'm just tired of the new model promises, and then a few years later they always start to show their true colors and fall apart. I guess I've just seen to many cheap domestic crap boxes. Our mechanic, and 25 yr friend was saying that gm offers cheap cars initially, but over the last few years the replacement part prices have been skyrocketing. Makes me think they sell you a crappy car for cheap and make more cash off of your problems, and with a bunch of young people buying fast, cheaply built cars, and obviously driving them hard, how long do you really think they'll last? These srt's and cobalts will be for sale dirt cheap in a couple years.
