My son just bought a 2006 Cobalt SS, and it's really fast. He wanted me to have his 2005 Cobalt LS. It's loaded with everything, and it's a really nice car. Now I have this sweet car that I like a lot. Although it doesn't have the horse power of his SS, it is still pretty fast. I don't know as much about cars as he does, cause for the most part, I've had a warranty on my cars when I bought them, so any repairs were covered by it. This Cobalt is still under the extended warranty as well, but hasn't had many problems. He even bought an extended warranty with his '06 Cobalt SS. I must say, we're a Cobalt family.
