Hi, from Ohio

My girlfriend and I just bought an 07 Cobalt SS (non S/C) a couple of weeks ago and so far we love it! I'm a member of a forum for my car and it's helped me out a lot so I thought it would be a good idea for this car too.

Just wondering, it feels like the cobalt doesn't turn very sharp, like while turning into a parking spot. Did anyone else notice this? I'm probably just paranoid or not used to it.

Congrads on your new car, and welcome! I have a cobalt LT2, not that it makes much of a difference, but i think that the turning radius is fine for parking spots. (Thats just me) But then it all depends, what car did you have before?

'08 Cobalt 2.2L LT2. Sport Accessory Package. Removed Side Pin strips. Tinted Windows
