New Cobalt Owner

Just got my cobalt yesterday A purple 2006 Cobalt LS. Dealer is going to install keyless entry for me too since they displayed that it had it and when it came it - it didn't so, there is an extra plus. I am coming from owning a crappy 2004 Suzuki Veronna with more problems then I could count (Constantly dying in traffic, door didn't open from inside, transmisson jerked - basically a lemon from a bad dealer), so this car was a nice surprise. Quite happy with the car overall. Only a slight problem with it, that it didn't seem to have when I test drove it earlier same day. Front driver wheel feels like it has a slight wobble and is making a noise. Could just be me though, they are going to check it out for me. Its been so long since I have driven anything other than that POS Suzuki that I don't know what another car is suppose to sound like or feel like. That beign said, this thing handles lightyears above that heavy old car

Thanks for the welcomes! Getting my keyless put in tomorrow and just ordered a K&N short ram air intake. Hopefully next year I will put an exhaust system on it. I'll be sure to post up some pics soon. Oddly enough, I don't think I have seen anyone else (in person) with the same color as me.

I saw 1 purple Balt once in person, I guess they are more rare than other colors.

When I first got the car, I knew that it said purple but it was late in the evening when I went to look at it. It looked very close to a dark gray/gun metal. I though to myself "Could have sworn that it was purple".. Drove it home that day. Next morning in the bright sun Sure enough puprle. Can't say I have ever seen a lime green one. :3 But I'd rock it.
