It's fine. The ss may be slightly faster, but I can guarantee you the st is better in almost every other way. The st is more practical too, I love the extra doors and the hatch space. So nice lol

If I were to only care about performance, and nothing else then i would have gotten another ss. But for every day use I think this.

2 doors (unless I somehow found a clean sedan) vs 4 doors

Can't fit anything in trunk vs super easy hatch with lots of space

Plastic interior that rattles vs soft touch everything and solid no rattles

No warranty, higher mileage, possible "porous" block vs warranty and 20k miles

And also I've been in a cobalt forever lol so something new is just nice sometimes.

Also, I absolutely love the cobalt ss. For a performer it is hard to beat for the price, one day maybe I'll pick another up. But for me, right now.. the st is better.

You should go over to CSS and tell them exactly what you just said. I'm sure they'll all agree lol

Lol they can't disagree. Everything I said is true, and all preferences to me. They can't disagree that my car is a hatch back and has more room. Sure the ss may be faster, but I prefer my st which is basically the same speed.. just a tad slower
