There will always be cars/trucks we'd like to own -- but are they really right for you now? What car/truck you own is your decision...none of us know you or your status so we can't really give you that type of advice.

Look at it this way then...it's an 8 year old truck! I doubt it has been "babied" -- can you do the repairs it might need?

If you're a mechanic, and can do your own repairs and you just couldn't live without it -- that would be a plus.

If you're not a mechanic but are wealthy enough to pay a mechanic to do the repairs and you just couldn't live without it -- that would be a plus too.

If you don't fit the 2 scenarios above then just dream about it...LOL!!!!

I'm thinking of selling my Cobalt also. The car just rides like ass, horrible over bumps, steering always seems to want to pull left, just unconfortable.
I dont know if its just my car that feels this way, the dealer has replaced the intermediate shaft and steering column, but says the struts/shocks are fine, etc.
I dont hear anyone complaining about the ride of their car so maybe its a fluke?

Thinking about getting a 2007 Focus (cant stand the design of the current model) or Fusion. I thought about trading up to a newer 2008 Cobalt but I dont want the same issues.

No reason to keep a car you're not happy with. Seems like you got a "Monday" or "Friday" built car...my Cobalt is a "joy" to drive..LoL!

Sounds like you're not too thrilled with yours either.

Pros of owning a truck: room to haul stuff

cons: 4 dollar gas will be back, sooner rather then later.
