Well, I was looking at the Mustang GT (no, I'm not getting that either) and was just wondering why you've chosen the Cobalt SS/SC over the Mustang GT? It's only a few G's more and you get more power and it's RWD for you dragsters. Please back up your answers. If you say reliability, let's hear why.

Maybe I'll take one out for a test drive sometime soon. Like tomorrow. :D

My guess is I'll have problems with the weight. Cornering is no fun in a heavy car though I hear it handles well.

A GT wouldn't be a bad car to have, if you didn't mind the gas price, and the fact that some peeps just aren't Ford fans. Plus the ins for the GT would be higher then the Cobalt, but that's just my guess. And a lot more maintnance, their a pain to work on, like changing the spark plugs, or trany fluid, or just the headers alone is a pain.....

Ok here we go....... For one i am not a ford fan. And for second i belive the car butt ass ugly it is just the ugilest car i have ever seen it just does absolutly nothing for me.
The reson that i the Cibalt over Mustang is that i have had a RWD car for three years and it snows alot were i live and i would like to have a FWD car that is fast and will still go in the snow.

O and i would rather have a 06 Z-06 Corvette!

Well, I wouldn't reccommend a RWD in a wintery climate.
No but here in PA it is wierd it tends to snow a decent amount and the simple fact that i live on a hill and they dont plow very offten when it snows.

No mustang here cuz I'm a Chevy guy. Right now Id like the Cobalt cuz of its better gas mileage than a V8, GREAT handling, its fast, etc. As far as FWD/RWD goes: This is an awesome enough Frontwheeler for me and for the RWD... I'll be faithfully waiting for the new Camaro!!!!! If it ever comes :(

We've got something called "winter beaters". :D Just a POS that a little more rust isn't going to make a difference. I don't think I'm going to drive my next car in the winter. Sure you can rust proof it but moving parts do pose a problem (rubbing).

Personally, I like the idea of an I4 beating a V8. :) Those Dodge Rams with Hemis think they're tough $hit until you smoke them.

1. ima chevy guy

I like the new mustang for the most part. I love the exterior styling but some of the interior I have mixed feelings about. Performance is great and you cant beat a V8 manual and I love the upgrades stereos. However, I'm leasing my cobalt SS/SC and for me to do that with the Mustang GT would be well over what I want to pay right now. Plus the only dealership that doesnt have the mustang GT marked up is over an hour from my house. But really the man reason is the price for the lease and probably insurance everything else I could live with

I thought about a mustang, but I live in a military town and every kid out of boot camp with no bills to pay is buying them. I see 30-40 different '05 mustangs a day. They are nice cars, decent proformance, but they have few frills and I get a GM discount, so I am staying with General Motors. :D
