My Son's 2005 Cobalt

My son just bought a 2006 Cobalt SS, and it's really fast. He wanted me to have his 2005 Cobalt LS. It's loaded with everything, and it's a really nice car. Now I have this sweet car that I like a lot. Although it doesn't have the horse power of his SS, it is still pretty fast. I don't know as much about cars as he does, cause for the most part, I've had a warranty on my cars when I bought them, so any repairs were covered by it. This Cobalt is still under the extended warranty as well, but hasn't had many problems. He even bought an extended warranty with his '06 Cobalt SS. I must say, we're a Cobalt family.

Welcome to the family! The Cobalt is a fine little car. If you treat her right, she'll keep you out of trouble. And with the right help and knowledge, you can make your little 2.2 just as quick (or quicker!) than your son's SS. Nothing wrong with a little family rivalry, am I wrong?

Welcome first sir! That's great to hear you picking up his cobalt. Its the chevy cavalier perfected in my opinion. Your 2.2L with just a few bolt ons can maintain great fuel economy, some on here are known to carry more MPG than some hybrid vehicles out today. My record was 39.6 Hwy with just a intake, header, and catback system.

Your son's SS isn't that much more in power. You can stay with him on bolt ons and a proper tune.

The word 'perfected' is a bit of a stretch, but the car is head and shoulders above the Cavelier/Sunfire twins.

100mpg? Sure, if you can find a big enough hill to neutral coast down lol. Pikes Peak comes to mind.
