Is it really this hard to find a cobalt ss?

Hi all,

I'm in the market, looking for '07 or above, but have room. There are none worth my time within 40 miles of me. Everytime I find one and make an appointment to check it out, it's sold. Noboday has a new on in white. There are a couple good used ones, but prices are way too high - although I think that turns out to be balance owed vs. depreciation value. I'm so frustrated.

I almost bought an '06 sedan yesterday for under 10k with 34k miles with 12/12 warrenty. I like it, clutch seemed to engage very very late though and there was what looked to be a small water stain on the headliner. I put $100 on it and planned to pick up this week after they do thier "certified" thing.

I did some reading, and found that sunroofs suck and need work or replacement roughly every six months; clutches go bad yearly, power steering goes out constantly, steering columns, ignition coils, front suspension, plastic chromw rubs off everywhere (and shows on shift knob). I could go on. Nothing but complaints on most reviews.

I'm not a taking a car to a dealer guy, and especially not monthly like the reviews complain. I bought a '99 blazer new and had it in 4 times under 15k. That seriously t'ed me off, but it has been ok the past 10 years aside from the expected repairs on an older vehicle.

I've been searching for one of these for about a month, after turning away from mazda, vw, etc. I'm tired of looking for a car.

I do work indirectly for GM, so I should stay loyal.

Should I stay away from the '06 cobalt SS? I did like it, but I can't predict the future. I understand it is the top of the b***om more or less, but my intention is to drive this for the next 10 years. I thought after the 12 month was up I could try my hand at an aftermarket low boost turbo, and tinker with upgrades a bit.

Any advice??

Thanks!

I haven't had any problems with my 2006 SS/SC, including the sunroof, to replace every 6 months is a rediculous claim, and the 1st I have ever heard this. if you check every car out there, there are going to be reported problems. If it were me, I would find a way to get a Turbo SS...
