    Cobalt SS T/C

    Everyone hates on the thing because its a Cobalt. I believe it holds the fastest lightning lap time for a FWD car at VIR. Great chassis, good motor, not a lot of them sold.

    I hate the Dodge SX 2.0.... my Mom had one she bought brand new and within about 4 years I was fixing it on a regular basis. Terriable transmission, horrible ride, zero driver feel, clunky suspension, garbage soggy un-supportive seats. Little stuff too, for instance like I broke the plastic clips for the visor by touching them, or how the engine sounded like it was stuck on 3500rpm no matter what you were doing. It was a peice of shit, easily on my top 10 worst cars of all time.

    I finally broke down and just gave her my old DD just so I could stop getting calls to come and fix that hopeless peice of trash all the time. It didn't even crack 90K and it felt like it was on death row.
    Either I'm lucky or your mom is unlucky. Mine is at 170000 and no problems at all. Only thing I've done is regular oil changes. I like mine.

    That's crappy news though.

    Buick Regal GS- Never read a bad review of one. Turbo, AWD (in later models) slick styling in and out, great handling. Sucha deal.

    I'm continually impressed by what these things can do on an Autocross course and even the track.

    Toyota MR2.
    Everyone looses their minds when they see a Supra. The MR2 can out perform the Supra, but people see the huge Supra hp #s.

    Maybe you experienced great reliability, but other than that possibility what makes it so fucking fantastic?

    Even though I personally wouldn't get one cause I would look weird in it but for me it would be a Mini. Never thought much of them, my sister in law got one and they are fun little things. Wish I didn't look funny in one, wouldn't mind having one around. And apparently pretty good in winter as she is able to drive around in Winnipeg out of all the places.

    The Mini I wouldn't say is underhyped. I was turned off of them when I read about the IC ice build up causing non starts and the weak transmissions. Have they fixed these issues?

    Yes, they were fun to test drive and I would only drive one all tinted out, haha.


    I'd also add the Pontiac GXP was underhyped. Those cars were pretty quick from stock.

    Loved my 2008 civic si coupe. Sweetest transaxle around.

    LSD, 220whp with bolt ons. Brilliant.
