We got a new Cobalt - Any want Roach II?


Recommended Posts

We closed on our home using GMAC so we thought we would continue to support GM by buying a new GM car. Really Roach II was costing us over $500 a month in gas so when we did the math it was cheaper to buy a new Cobalt on a monthly basis and in the long run. When everything is added up, inlcuding the payment, we now spend $50 less per month to run the Cobalt than to run Roach II.

There wasn't a 5 speed LS coupe in Blue Granite Metallic so we got a base with cruise and a spoiler. So far we are getting over 40 mpg consistently. At this point we already have over 1700 miles.

My wife is now considering the sale of Roach II as she has fallen in love with "Ladybug".

Since posting on C&G last I have;
1. Sold the Bravada
2. Bought a Ford Thunderbird which broke down, and is now being sold (mistake to buy Ford in the 1st place even if I did pay cash for it).
3. Bought a home
4. Got a new job that pays $1000 more a month
5. Rented a Classic for an LA trip (not a bad car and was under consideration when the Cobalt was bought)
