Would you consider a Cobalt....

13 posts in this topic

I'm kinda thinking about it. :scratchchin:

It's an 06 LS Coupe, with 30k on it...

It's quite rough on the outside (I'm detailing it now) with quite a few scratches, dents....a bit rough on the inside, but I'm making it look pretty decent.... :yes:

It's been in an accident-though it was a light one- and inpected by both myself and my dad ( car is in family)

Even though it looks rough on the outside, the Eco is in good shape (almost all highway miles) and the rest underneath is good too.....

and I could probably pick up between 5-7 grand......

Even though it's a coupe (really don't need another one), it would make a good replacement for the wagon, and can be paid off fairly quickly.....

And knowing I'll going to have to put a few more bucks in the wagon soon....

What do you guys think?

Sounds like a bargain, dave. If the mechanicals are good, I'd say go for it.

Yeah, that was my biggest worry-the engine and trans.

The Eco seems to be doing well ( and will get some extra help by joining the Mobil 1 family) I think the highway miles did it good....

And the trans fluid looks good, and shifts fine.

If I do get it though-I'll probably do a complete fluid change a tick or to after 50k miles......

Go for a GMPP Extended Warranty if you still can... You never know. It served us well on the Cavalier, when a Headgasket and Power Steering Pump made it pay for itself... Same with a Transmission replacement on the Trans Sport. One major thing and you'll be glad you had it.

I might have to look into that....unlike my cars, this one wasn't babied much...

I have to take it in to get an idea what the value of this thing will be...

We paid ~1200$ for the 6/160K km GMPP for the MAXX last Feb... I believe you can haggle a bit on the price, but I don't remember. You can get the GMPP anytime before 36K Miles.
