    I'm not defending that guy, and I like Southpaw, I just think we should keep the personal attacks to a minimum here.

When I would ask for 120% she would give me 130% That will be hard to beat. But you really can compare to two. A full cast iron V6 is more durable than any aluminum block 4 banger motor.

    When I can I plan to test drive an SS. I hope I don’t like it. But after driving my 2005 for three months now I am a little disappointed in it. I read these forums for awhile before buying it. Mainly “WRX –Vs- the World”. I guess I was expecting more with all the hype and “Kills”. Going from a healthy moded V6 to a turbo 4 was a big change though. Can’t beat the WRX in the snow though.


    I love this guy.

    The Z24 is still owning WRXs in the twisties, right? There are some quality older posts here...

    Unfortunately yes it dose. But the skinny stock tires are junk on the WRX. The sway bars on the WRX are a joke to. But that can change.

    Note: Buy no means am I calling the Subi a bad car. I just need to get use to it. After driving the same car for 16 years, it an 86 buy the way, just not use to the new car. I knew the old one in and out, what it could and could not do. I could read the tire noise and know exactly how much more I could push it. The 1986 Z24 is on its way to the graveyard. Metal gas line under the body starter to leak, rust. I figured if the gas lines are that bad then the brake lines cant be too far behind. Paid $6300 for it in 1989 had 43K on it. I was only 19 years old. Now it has well over 200K, Hmmm think I got my moneys worth? Traded my 1973 Super Beetle for it. Only had 320K on it. You know what! Rusty failing brake lines was the same reason I got rid of the bug.

    Now my bug could blow the doors off of your………………. Oh Ya! Pulling your leg there!



    Hopefully in 15 to 20 years I will be shooting the snot on a forum about my old fateful 2005 WRX. Hopefully I won’t be cleaning my false teeth while doing it. Back in my day…………….

    I’m still very suspect on there results. This is the same magazine that ran a 6.3 0-60 in a 02 rsx type-s. Go reed the rsx forums, no one has ever ran that time stock. Wasn't this magazine the same one that also ran 5.4 in a stock wrx, I don't think to many people on here have ran below 5.7 stock.

    All I'm saying is maybe they give them slightly beefed up cars knowing that these reviews will sell them.

    I've already seen another site saying that the SS runs 0-60 in 6.5 and the quater in 14.9.

    Will just have to wait and see what this car really does once more people get ahold of it.

    I read the review in Motor Trend and it looks to be a decent car ---- until you see it costs $24k + tax. Nope. Sorry. Completely not worth it when the SRT-4 goes for $3k less than that, or more than 10% cheaper.

    W3RD!!! Use the extra money that it takes to get you a Cobalt, buy a stage 2 kit and full suspension for the price of the Cobalt. Then wave at the Cobalt as you are passing him in corners and straightaways.

    I think I have come to the conclusion that the Cobalt SS is a very nice car, for < $22,000. Comparing it to the SRT-4 in terms of performance/ modability is a lost cause, the Dodge wins hands down. But price being equal, the SS definately has the looks, interior, and overall fit & finish advantage. I think that's why its $2,000-3,000 more...

    Your point is True, but now a days, people aren't looking into the fit and finish, its more of finding the the extra power, because the HP in the car is what is Game now. Those with more cash, can then have the pleasure of having both

    You can buy a Legacy GT for around $25,500 plus tax. Granted, it won't be the Limited (leather, sunroof) model but it's still much more car than a Cavalier with a blower...

    I disagree. I think when people see what the Cobalt SS has to offer, they will assess the bigger picture rather than just power potential. I'm a huge fan of power potential. I've owned an 02' Camaro SS, an 02' WRX, and now own an 04' Evo. Regardless of my past, I would still consider a Cobalt SS over an SRT-4.
