Cobalt drivers under 30


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a reporter from the Washington Post working on a story about how GM is trying to learn to court younger buyers using the Chevy Cobalt. If you're under 30 and own a Cobalt, or know somebody that age who does, I'd really like a chance to chat with you.

My e-mail is: Weissmannj@washpost.com

Three people I work with have them:

21 year old guy - yellow LT coupe

22 year old guy - silver LS coupe

18 year old girl - blue LS sedan

They love them. They all bought them within 9 months of each other. The 21 year old bought his, raved about it, the 22 year old bought his, raved about it, and the 18 year old girl bought hers. I'd consider a Cobalt after college, although by that time it might be the Cruze. I'd get a red LT coupe right now if I could.

I dunno, a lot of the Cobalts I have sold have been to 'oldsters.' At $5.00 a gallon, it is a good 'downsize' vehicle for people getting out of their LeSabres and 88s.

I'd say the numbers are about 50-50: half the Cobalts I've sold are to those under 25 and the other half to those over 25. :alcoholic:

I've owned a Cobalt since June '05. I turned 30 two weeks ago.

I like the mix of angles on the Cobalt in this thread:

-reporter

-Cobalt owners

-Cobalt sales at the dealership

-And a GM employee ( if he chooses to respond in a serious fashion)

Could be a pretty good overall perspective on the car.

So have any who answered here actually E-mailed the man yet? Would be nice to see some C&Gers written about in a major newspaper. Attract some new posters too.
