New Guy from MI

Hey everyone, my name is Nate. I found your site via Google. Been on ************* but ...bla.

I have a 2004 Grand Prix Gt and a 1996 Camaro Z28 right now. I am thinking about trading the grand prix in on a cobalt. Looking at a 2007+ Cobalt LS in red with a 5 speed.


Generally, these cars are solid right? My grand prix has been very reliable, and I want the same from my next car.

What are the weak spots on these cars?


thanks

Welcome, if my car was gonna get totaled I was looking at a grand prix. lol but idk there good cars, the interior likes to rattle, there pretty peppy for a four banger. other then that not a bad car might be a step down from a grand prix though.

Its a step down that I want to take. So sick of window motors dying, gauge problems, etc.

I had a 97 Z24 Cavalier and loved it, this car isnt "me"

Welcome! I had a grand prix gt a few years ago. It was an awesome car,..... until I totaled it. I flipped it a (few) times.... The Cobalt is an awesome car though! The bushings go bad fast, but they're not hard to change and not too expensive.
