my new Cobalt SS

15 posts in this topic

First of all----glad to see Cheers and Gears back! Best car forum!

Heres my 06 2.4L SS coupe. The colour is granite blue and you can't get that on US SS Cobalts. My first new car too!

No pricey options---just the way I would have ordered it. Keeps the payments lower!

Used 1500 GM pionts and $1000 from Car Heaven (GM sponsored program to get old cars off the road)

And of course the 5 speed. The 2.4L is a very impressive engine. Smooth with all right right sounds. Makes very good low end torque. Just got over 800kms on it and have been babying it. Just starting to open her up a bit now.

The build qaulity and interior are great. And the the 5 speed is the BEST fwd manual trans I have ever driven. Perfect shifts and launches are childs play.

Way to go GM!

The Cobalt looks great. I hope you have many fun miles in it. And the Firebird still looks great too.

I really like that color on the Cobalt. It's on the Silverado for 06 and on the STS and CTS too. If I was buying right now I'd definetly consider that color.

I hate that color simply because my asshole boss has a G6 sedan of that color and it looks terrible...

Nice Cobalt SS and F'bird. GM did a great job with that car...it's one of the few small cars I would consider buying. Good to see you're happy with it.

They got the stance on the non-supercharged SS just right. Sportier than the base/LS/LT, yet more subdued than the SS/SC. I love it, and am seriously mulling over getting the SS kit for my car.

Awsome Cobalt. Great stealthy color. I'd never get rid of the Firebird if it was me. Maybe for a 2006 GTO or CTS-V I'd consider it, but never for a Cobalt.
