Well, just as an update, the used Cobalt I was looking at was junk. Had been hit on the front end, and the bumper was about 3 shades off from the body color, and they had left the grill with a chunk taken out of it. I kept looking for a small car and was oh so close to buying an 03 Civic EX. I saw it last tuesday night, negotiated a pretty good deal, went to my bank wednesday to get a loan, came back thursday and it was gone. My sales guy was off wednesday and another salesman sold it, not realizing I was getting it.
Well, I guess things happen for a reason because on Memorial Day I took delivery of a brank spankin' new 2009 Cobalt LS! She pretty base, 5 speed manual, power nothing, but its all I need to get around and scoot between Norfolk and DC to see my girl. I am military and use Navy Federal Credit Union, so with all the discounts... well I got a heck of a deal on it and got out from all the negative equity I had in my truck!
Oh, and I wanted to mention one thing in here. Carfax... yeah... becareful with that one. Im not gonna slam them because they do provide a good service, but not everything gets reported. I think I'll make a new thread on this one.
