well its an iffy thing, it looks great but how was it treated? 95% of those kind of rides have been flogged to death. Even low mileage ones so its a catch22 or whatever ya know. A guy in our LSJ club just had to have one and got rid of his SS, he had to do allot to it and not to mention has wrecked it twice within two months, one time being stupid and the other just on a semi wet road going around an on ramp, was not speeding or anything, just lossed traction(funny, everyone cums over the awd and traction) and bam, needs a whole new side.

They are nice though

oh boy, i like it... but I am with Beamer on this one, do your research and talk to the seller, ask questions you know the answer to, if the seller gives you the correct answer or shows they know about the care atleast you know that the person knew what they were doing when they were working on the car, but that doesn't mean they didn't take short cuts. I would go with an evo, but I like my Cobalt SS too much. Good luck with it though.

M62 Powered for Now


S252 Next (Car is gonna be fast and Sneezing, lots!)

That EVO looks real clean. If you can afford it...buy it! You only live once.

If it wasn't from craigslist i would say get it. but i wouldn't trust craigslist or anything. look on auto trader or carmax. websites like those and see if you can find one similiar or exactly like it and get it. but don't buy it from craigslist or ebay

Craigslist/Ebay is alright if you are looking locally...I would never buy a used car without seeing it in person.
