Thinking of buying an SS

Just what the title says. I'm thinking about buying a Cobalt SS. I currently have a Solstice GXP...I LOVE it!! I'm looking for a second car since I put about 20k on them and I live in Michigan. I'm very particular about my cars. I'm looking at a 2009 Cobalt SS. It has the same engine as my Solstice, so I know it has power! What should I expect from this car? Is there anything that I should look for? Any common problems? Like for the Solstice, the waterpump is an issue and goes every 30-60k...the rear end has a TSB for a leak...and the high-pressure-fuel-pump tends to go on earlier models.... Things like this is what I want to know. This car I'm looking at has 66,000 on it and they want $13,500. Does the car have bluetooth? I've always loved the looks of the Cobalt SS. I know its not a very pratical "winter ride", but it's FWD. It would be more of a year round car as I want to keep the mileage off of my Solstice. My Solstice has a tune, exhaust and CAI, so I'm pushing about 300hp. My other choice for a car is an '08 G8 with the V6 motor. It has 71k on it and they want $10,900..... I would like a sedan because I've never owned one...but love the Cobalt because I know what to expect from the motor, and it should be a rocket.... Thanks in advance guys/gals!!!

Get the cobalt, and yes they all come with bluetooth these days. its the same motor, so all the common problems with the solstice, is with the cobalt
