Greetings from the Northern Plains
Hi, I just bought an 05 Cobalt 5 speed coupe base in yellow with 132,000 miles on it. I just finished restoring the electrical system to stock after removing a faulty autostart system that a previous owner had installed. I paid $2700 from a dealer for the car which is a bit more than I wanted to but I had been looking for a domestic 5 speed 4 cylinder car with manual locks and widows for a few months without finding anything. The car had a new set of goodyear snowtires on it so I went to the junkyard and found some 15"steelies from a Saturn and matched them to some touring tires for the summer months. They charged me $94.00 for 4 rims and tires and I paid another $50 to get them mounted and balanced at a little service station. My previous car was a 2010 VW Golf in white which I was afraid to work on and disliked driving so I just sold for $6000. My plan is to maintain this car and replace parts, engines, and trannys for as many miles as I can drive it. I've got AAA and I plan on insuring it with straight liability insurance. Eventually I would like to get a full electric car in few decades or so when its more practical. My backup lights don't work, my cruise control has been faulty, and my headlights have spiderweb cracks; but other than that the car runs and drives pretty well. Anyway nice to meet you all, hopefully you got some stuff to say!
