'05 Cobalt SS

what do y'all think of this? it's supposed to be a contender to go up against the SRT-4. from the looks of it, i think it would do a bit BETTER than the neon, in styling. as for power, they both have about the same stock (2-teens). but i haven't heard of chevy offering any kind of factory power upgrade similar to dodge's mopar options.

in any case, opinions??

Not too bad looking even though it sorta reminds me of a Honda Civic.

As focaltech stated before, it looks like a cross between a Chevy Cavalier and a Mercury Cougar (as he put it, a "Cougalier") but it looks like maybe Chevy is finally getting a little more serious about sport compacts. I don't think its all that bad, but I could do without the rear wing.

I don't like the 2nd Picture, the back of the car is ugly. Not as ugly as the early tiburon's, but close. It slopes down too quick, and the wing doesn't look interesting.....looks like every other wing design. Factory wings should be destinct. The interior is stupid, plain and stupid.

The car is not my style....The front looks okay. The rims are nice, but would look better on a more flat-sided, box design like the focus.....should have gotten something with curves.

It looks alright.

I'd give it serious consideration if I were in the market for that type of car.
