Go ahead pick you favorite one or two cars. Try not to select more than three! Keep in mind my needs, has to have a nice size trunk, good performance (think like my SLE, good), can be driven for fun on the weekends and also driven to school/work by my son or I during the week, should be a good car with few expensive repairs, oh and it must be GM. If it isn't on the list it isn't being considered!

2008-2009 Cobalt XFE Coupe...

I really like the fuel economy and the fact that it has a nice trunk and is a 5spd is a bonus. If I got one I would wish I had a G5 anyways.

2008-2009 G5 XFE...

Same as the Cobalt but way better looking.

2001-2002 Grand Prix GT Coupe...

Always loved the look of these. Finding them in good shape with low miles is hard, but in my budget but it is a 7 maybe 8 year old car. Also the Special Edition Models with the spoiler and wheels were sweet!

Final Thoughts

My budget is basically 8,000 if I am going used I might be able to slide it to 9,000 if I go new. Having said that I think a used is prolly the way to go. I have found a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT Coupe Special Edition in Galaxy Silver all stock with 51K on it but it is 500 miles away and he is asking $8,400 about 1,000 actually more like 1,500 to much for the car. But my son has fallen in love, with those coupe GP's. Frankly so have I.

Anyone know how rare the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT/GTP Coupe/Sedan Special Editions are? Or the 2002 40th anni models? How about the 2003 Limited Edition models? Those by far with the multi-spoke chrome wheels and two tone interiors are the best looking and sweet badging and tips out back are a bonus. If I could do one of these I would, but they are hard to find!

Any comment or ideas? Either way please vote!

Down to those three options... So vote!

I thought about picking it just to be an ass. :P

You would, but I trust you... So this is getting interesting... Any thoughts? I am trying to stay away from an Aveo5 or a G3! Not to be encouraged to buy one! That is why I came up with a list!

Voted.

If you're looking at GPs (and that seems to be the direction you're leaning) would you consider a late model Regal LS or even a base LaCrosse? Same car mechanically as the GPs you mentioned, but in all likelihood they will have been babied rather than beat on.

Are you seriously considering the Aveo/G3?

My vote is 2008-2009 Malibu.

Sure for the right price and the Malibu isn't even in my budget. A 2002-2005 Grand Am GT SC/T would be tho.

I'd take a classic Beetle over a Cobalt anyday. A Yugo, not so much. I haven't voted, mostly because all the options are just different flavors of "meh"
