Well I Have been considering the cobalt for some time now, ever since they introduced it, even back in the concepts i liked it..

So i went down to my local deal and i talked to a salesmen about the Cobalt SS. (man i hate sales people, at least this guy), i was told the wait is probrably 2-4 months for the SS "Which was bullshit" yes there is a wait but not that long..

He told me to settle for the LS and get as many options as i wanted, and futher more he told me i do not qualify for the GM employee discount (dad works for General Motors) again i found out i do qualify for a discount (Stupid people trying to make money by ripping me off)

I decided to goto another local deal and they had one on the lot, salesmen was alot nicer, he told me this one is available for sale right now, i told him i would have to order mine, becauuse the one on the lot did not have a sunroof and i want a red one, the one on the lot was black..

So in all good news i am goin to check out one more dealership and i am goin to order me self a Cobalt SS......

explain to me if i was looking for A SS model what the hell makes you think im gonna settle for one that is an LS...


Oh yeah my local dealer has an LS right now with a nice body kit on it (Factory) tomorrow when i go by i will take pics and post them, sure its an Automatic LS, but it is not a bad price and the kit looks decent...

What do you want a sunroof for? they're overrated, expensive, heavy... etc. 2-4 months isn't unrealistic at all, depending on location and dealer the soonest they'll get it is 6-8 weeks.

As far as the salesman telling you you didn't qualify for gms... its more than likely you dont... gms applies to employees, not family members of employees unless there is a special promotion offering gms to family members. OR you/your family member is on good enough terms or knows someone who can get the right strings pulled for you. But when I got my cobalt at what was supposed to be GMS I found out my buddy who is a salesman at the dealership would have only made $70 on the deal... so I had some strings pulled and ended up not doing gms, but getting a better deal, and my buddy made more money off it.


If you're not pressed for time to get a car... and can wait for what could be more than 2-4 months go for the SS, otherwise an LS is still a very nice car.

No, GMS is for family of GM employees. My step grandfather works at a plant in Texas and I was still able to receive the discount without any problems. My family has bought a few cars with GMS without hastle.

You guys can always do what I did...drive to the nearest dealer with an SS available and buy the damn thing. I drove 300 miles.

Hey everyone I post a lot over at Cobaltss.net decided to check things out here... Just wanted to let you know if your SS isnt ordered in the next few days chances are your going to have to wait until sept when the 06' models are ready...

I ordered mine yesterday and called GM before I went... they said I was cutting it close... especially if I wanted the G85 package... which you have to get... it doesnt make sense not to

i decided to get the one on the lot... my two color options where the blue and the black..

they had the black on the lot so i took it... (a friend of mine is so pissed cause he wanted it) i told him should have acted sooner...

It does not have the lsd or the recaro seats... apparently that is a 2006 offer..

now this is just a rumor that i heard from a few salesmen (and for my friends sake, cause he is in so much pain that he does not have his yet)..
Apparently (this may be untrue, the next year cobalt ss may not be Supercharged)

i hope that is wrong cause i hope they keep it cause i would love to get an LSD and the new seats install at the dealership (or even order it)

any body that can prove this wrong please (I REALLY WANNA ORDER THE LSD, and get it install later)

my dad ismore excited that i am, he said to the salesmen (who has known my dad for 30+ years) my dad had to drive it before we signed anything....

man my dad is a lead foot, he drove it harder then me..

we got back and he told his friend he wanted one, so you never know, this house hold may have two in the drive way very soon cause there is a yellow SS on its way to the same dealer ship
