Cobalt - Cruze

So how Identical are the Cobalts and the Cruzes? I bought a different car since my cobalt was wrecked, but id love to get into something like a cobalt again down the road . . . so to speak.

I have heard a few negative reviews on the Cruze, anyone have any experiences with them?

They're supposed to be completely different. I've heard ppl complain of lack of power in the 1.8L cruze

2009 Ford Escape Limited - 3.0L, 6 speed auto, 4x4, 25/33 city/hwy imp mpg.
2017 F150 XLT-XTR - 5.0L, 4x4, 3.55's, E-locker, xtr chrome package, fx4 off-road package.
20/25 imp mpg

LOL! I feel the love.

Probably will look for something used, unless I come into some money

Something easy to work on if needed. Ill definitely look for a 4 banger.

Thanks

imo the brz is overpriced, for the same price you can pick up a v6 mustang or camaro and have 100hp more than the brz.

actually the mustang is $3500 cheaper. and the camaro is making 123 hp more for $1200 more.
