Looking for a new ride. I went shopping yesterday and looked at subaru, honda, nissan, dodge, and chevy. I test drove a 2007 Chevy Cobalt SS supercharged and really liked how it drove. I can get it for 21,500 fully equiped. Anyone have any other suggestions? Looking to stay around 22 max. Only other car that was ok was the WRX, but the interior was really cheap.

i vote WRX

Yeah I liked the wrx, but it wasent as quick and the interior had so much plastic. I was basically paying more to have AWD

I would take the WRX over the Cobalt SS any day. The WRX should be a couple tenths faster in the 1/4..

I don't see how you didn't think the Cobalt's interior was ****** as well. They're both overwhelmed with cheap plastic, IMO.

Whatever you do,dont get the cobalt ith the 2.2L L4 DOHC...really bad about timing chains going out.You can tell it from the other 2.2 by the valve cover.It will have "ecotech" stamped into it.My wifes went out @49997miles.
