I really don't know what people have against the 2.4L...I could be slightly biased because it looks similar to my LS with a bit of the SS bodykit thrown in but the car just flows so well. The rims match it perfectly and look awesome being 17" polished...that was probably the first thing I noticed on the one sitting on the dealers lot...I had to pull in and look at it. I guess in the long run it comes down to a matter of personal taste...as long as you're happy with it though that's all that matters .JohnyNFullEffect said:Finally someone likes what GM's done with the SS non-s/c!
I figure this is the reason most people don't like the 2.4L and it's completely understandable. I'm not real happy the '06 base model is now branded LS when my fully loaded '05 LS is definitely not a base model as far as features, style and price are concerned but I'm trying to look past it and just enjoy my car for what it is and not be overly concerned with what comes out in the years following my model . I think once most people look past the branding and see the car for what it is they'll agree GM did a good job on it and it's another nice addition to the Cobalt lineup . If it generates more sales for GM that means more $$ for R&D and we ultimately win in the long run...just keep thinking stage kits .bowofdoom said:honestly i dont beleive that there should be any other option then a s/c ss but thats my opinion. my reasoning is that the ss badge was awarded to the cars that were set apart from the rest of the models by real darastic changes in horsepower and style.
Umm... If that's the case, then there shouldn't be a colbalt SS. There really shouldn't be an SS line. The only cars worthy of an SS badge are the GXP grand prix's and bonavilles, but they are GXP's, not SS.bowofdoom said:honestly i dont beleive that there should be any other option then a s/c ss but thats my opinion. my reasoning is that the ss badge was awarded to the cars that were set apart from the rest of the models by real darastic changes in horsepower and style.
