Just to Introduce Myself and My Brand New Cobalt

Hi to all! I'm a very old (65) guy, and I just purchased a brand new 2009 Cobalt LS. It's the absolute base model with NO options. It's white color and light grey interior. It really looks great. I won't bother you with a long story (i'm old but they tell me that i'am not senile yet ), but here are the reasons I got this Cobalt:

1) Patriotism - yes, I think that we should all show some more faith in the US/Canada made products, and buy more of them. Although, I must tell you, I did seriously look into Honda Civic.

2) My existing car was a Chevy Impala 1980. Local GM dealer gave me $1000 off Cobalt for it. After 30 years, this Impala only had a water pump changed (I did it myself - total cost $29). and it still was running like a charm. WHO says GM doesn't make good quality cars ??? But it was rusting badly and it needed to go (boy, was I sad to let it go...).

3) The Chevy dealer gave me such a low price (I didn't even need to bargain), that I just couldn't resist.


So there you have it. The new Cobalt arrived yesterday and it drives and looks great.

Just to note that "you can teach an old dog a new trick" : I never in my life have driven a stick shift. After 1/2 hour with my neighbour's help I was up and running. Stalled it only once . Boy, it is fun to drive the stick, I can tell you..., I feel like kid again !!!


All the best regards and good luck to all forum members.

Cheers,
veryold guy .

P.S. If anybody cares to, please tell me if I need to watch for, or do anything special, during these first days of owning my new Cobalt.

Welcome, there is nothing you need to do to it as of right now. Just keep the maintenance up on it and you should be good to go. I have a 06 LS and I have not had any real problems with it yet and I have almost 50,000 on it. Maybe someone with a 09 model can tell you if they have had any problems with theirs, again welcome to YC.
