Thinkin Bout Ditchin the 'balt What Do You Think?

Went to the Nissan dealer today to look around and I found myself test driving a Nissan Rouge. What I wanna know is if anyone else has one what they experienced what they think about getting rid of my cobalt and if 5000 is a good enough trade in value. Mind you the cobalt needs a new rear bumber the scrape guard fixed and the roof has to be cut off and completely replaced, on an '07 Cobalt LT sedan auto. Oh and I can barely fit my car seat in the balt so it eliminates anyone riding in the front seat comfortably and I can barely fit the stroller in my trunk the opening sux. Dont know alot about the rouge but my wife loves the way it looks its not a big honkin suv which I like but it is all wheel drive which is a huge plus here in maryland. Anyways would like some feedback. Oh and I owe 8000 still.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt - Trade In Value, blue book value - Kelley Blue Book

That is an estimate but there you go, and it would definately be fair condition with the damage

52000 miles and I know for a fact its 5000 for the balt but im just trying to get some opinions and I may just have to live with the cobalt for a while, Its not like I hate the car I just rushed the decision to buy it and I could have found something that suited my needs better, also I didnt know my wife was preg. at the time. So life goes on and since the baby ive learned a LOT of patience thx for yalls input this site is awesome and even if I do get rid of the cobalt this site has been a TON of help on all sorts of stuff and if i do decide to get rid of it I have a zspec intake and a sway bar I will be selling.

Maybe something else on a Chevy/Buick/Ford/Lincoln/Chrysler lot may suit your needs?

I havnt seen anything I like yet Im a big fan of Japanese styling and ive owned several cars and the only ones that gave me trouble were american, not that anything is really made in america anymore i think the cobalt is mostly korean or it was at least Im not sure about now. Anyways its not lookin like i can afford it anyways thats for your input guys.
