This is my favorite: I actually really like the Cruze, but a performance version is needed. Even by today's standards, its performance is ballistic for a front-wheel-drive vehicle, making it the ideal starter car for a budding enthusiast on a budget. Cobalt-SS is very stable because it uses stepper motors rather than servo motors.

I cant imagine GM made much money off the SS cobalts. What makes you say that? WTF is up with that? The cobalt was replaced by the cruze. Is GM even making the cobalt? it ran 6,4 and thats a fact.

Yep, they stopped making the Cobalt. Lots to discuss on the subject, but it is getting late, and I have been drinking too much wine tonight. I'm calling BS on the top speed part. It's an '07 with the low-profile spoiler.

Don't be tempted by the cheaper supercharged Cobalt SS or the normally aspirated model because neither comes close to the potential of the later turbocharged car.

I've test-driven a few(recently too).It handles soo well that there's no sense of under-steer at all, in fact if you try hard enough the back gets lose before the front does. I have been trying to find out the specs on the factory Pioneer system for our cars and I found some info on it finally!

Threads. Black can be a pain to keep clean, but it looks fantastic after a good bath, like the in the pic :) If you can get over the flimsy interior, the Cobalt SS sticks out as a tremendous performance bargain. i doesnt matter what u find more realistic or not.
