New Guy on Board

Hello all, name is Mike and I got my 2006 2.4L Cobalt SS in January of this year and while it has its share of issues, it is probably the best 4cyl car I have ever owned! My previous vehicle was a gas guzzling full size truck. 11mpg and unstoppable but I am much happier now with 25mpg and paying half for insurance and fuel as compared to the truck.

As for the problems it has, the first issue is an exhaust leak. Noticed it when changing the oil this past weekend. The gasket for the exhaust manifold, between the block and manifold, apparently wore out. Car ran fine when I bought it but within the past week, got a LOT louder. So it goes in to the dealer in the morning for repair under warranty. Good thing I found out about that 5 year/60k mile powertrain! The other issue it has is the interior. The headliner has burn holes, the silver trim pieces are worn out, and the carpet has stains. But all that will be fixed in time.

So, glad to be here, and hope to learn and share vital information.

I am from VA, saw that there have been a few meet and greets but all have passed. I am closer to DC though. I am all about modifying but more on the performance side, not so much cosmetic. However, rims and window tint are on the immediate mod list.
