chevy cobalt

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  chevy cobalt

I dont know what to think of this car, some pics make it look good, others make it look ugly... I also think its way to high up and the supercharged spoiler isnt wide enough.. Has an ok 140 hp stock, what you guys think of this new chevy? :smoke:

i think the new cobalt is okay, but it will never replace the chevy camaro, im disapointed how chevy designed the cobalt, (the looks) when i get my next car im deffenitly going ford...

Oh really? A supercharged spoiler? Now I know it must be cool.





It's not supposed to. A 4cyl trying to replace a V8 muscle car? Jeez.

posted by  abless

Not all camaros are V8's there are v4 and v6 models also.

Besides, the way i see it is that chevy stopped making the Camaro, so that they can produce a car to take the place of the camaro.

I am not sure where I saw this on a forum, but I saw a topic with many sources about a problem with the lack of Camaro production being fixed for the 2007 cars, which would mean we may be seeing a new Camaro in late 2006, we can hope can't we? I'll try and find where I saw this also.

There exist NO V4 Camaros. Get it through your head. The Cobalt is like a Civic or Integra. FWD, 4 cyl, slow pos. Not RWD, or V8.




What? They stopped making it so they could make a replacement? Great idea...

Pick up a repair manuel, for the years 1982-1992, There is a V4 option for the camaro...

Pick up a dictionary. Learn how to spell "manual".

V4? dont u mean I-4, a V4 would not be very efficient at all..

posted by  speedy266

There is no such thing as a V4, there's a horizontal opposed 4 and an inline 4, even a slant 4. but no V4's

posted by  Zalight

Honestly, tell me, when have you ever seen a 4 cylinder camaro??? and since you know they stopped making the camaro to make the cobalt (Yeah right) are they gonna just drop the whole cavalier line???

posted by  S_DemonSpeed_S

I figured there never was a 4 cylinder (much less a V4) Camaro, but this idiot claims he has a manual or something. Jeez.

posted by  abless

I do have a manual, use it everytime i need to fix something, unless the manual is not clear i dont ask questions here. If you want me to prove it to ya, then i will

posted by  83camaro

So this manual, you say, has a 4 cylinder setup for a camaro, tell me does that mean that you have a 4 cylinder camaro, because if you ask me i dont think it could be considered a camaro if its only 4 cylinders

posted by  S_DemonSpeed_S

No i do not have a 4 cylinder camaro.. mines a v6 (soon to be a V8), Now, ill scan the manuals cover and the page's that show that the camaro has a 4 cylinder model. by the end of the day

I guess you're right about the 4 cylinder part. Not the V4 part.

Wow. What a pos.

New article in Motortrend says the Cobalt SS did 0-60 in 6 sec and 14.5 in the 1/4 mile.

OMG!!! these guys kill me. one had it right... Its not replacing anything. its to compete with the imports(integ,civic)
;yes camaro is coming back....
The gobalt is a desent enought vehicle. it does look good. but i like the new Scion TX by toyota better. :smoke:

It's replacing the Cavalier

About the 4 cylinder Camaro, you're partly wrong. There was an Inline 4 offered from 1982 to 1986. This info was taken from this book i have that lists all American cars and specs since 1930. There was no 4 cylinder for the years 1987-1992, just a V6 and V8.

Just thought I'd pitch in...

The Cobalt is kinda lacking in style imo. However the SS supercharged is a good attempt to compete with the Dodge Neon SRT-4, but I think it'll need a little more oomph to outrun it.

I do like the look but it does look a little Handa to me :2cents:

posted by  archangle

I don't think the Cobalt is trying to compete with the SRT-4.

posted by  abless

The Camaro is simply taking a break, being redone, w/e you want to call it and this is the first time i have posted pictures i think i did it right and if i did and you can see the pictures of the future Camaro you will have to agree this puts to shame the redone mustang!!! A Camaro could never be replaced by a 4banger.

As far as I am concerned this is the BEST remake of a car ever!!!

posted by  barsy07

They only made the cobalt to compete agaist pewny little rice burners like civics, integras etc.

posted by  DeluxeSS

The new Camaro kinda reminds me of a corvette in that first picture.

And your right, it does look better than a mustang. But then again camaros always have looked better than mustangs.



So they made a supercharged 4cylinder with 205 horsepower and 200 torque that runs mid 14's in order to compete with civics(I assume you mean the current model) that have 127 hp and 114 torque and runs 16's, and integras which aren't even in production anymore in the U.S.

Do me a favor and tell me why a car company would aim for their competition to be a car no longer in production, thats like saying the subaru legacy is trying to compete with the 55 bel air.

What you said is an ignorant statement from the brain of an ignorant person.

The Cobalt is and isn't replacing the Cavalier. What's happening is, Chevrolet is revamping their entire compact line-up, which previously consisted of one car (the Cavalier). Production on the Cavalier stopped in October, with the surplus currently on lots. Instead now, Chevy is offering a bit more selection in the sub $20 000 range, with the Aveo being an entry level car for students and the like and the Cobalt offering more performance and luxury. While the Cobalt is the closest car to the Cavalier currently in production, it isn't really a direct replacement.

And yeah, the Cobalt is designed to try to gain a bigger share of the tuner market from the imports. The problem is, brand loyalty plays a big role in the automotive market and these entry level tuner cars often end up being the first car young people buy. A kid who buys a Honda now is more likely to buy another Honda when it comes time to replace it. So Chevy is trying to get young buyers hooked on the bow tie brand instead, with the intent of keeping em buying these cars. The SRT-4 is in the same vein from Dodge and I expect Ford will come out with their own version before too much longer (Taurus SVT, maybe?).

I think the supercharged cobalt is a pretty nifty and quick little car and looks a helluva lot better than the Cavalier so I would take one. :laughing:

posted by  99integra

i like my cobalt its a quick car and the interior is a step up from that of the srt-4.. not as quick as one though

and so far the car is too new for the aftermarket parts, but hopefully they will be as backed as the srt is by the aftermarket companies.

heres a few pics

^ Good response. Imo that looks great. I think the Cobalt SS is a great car.

posted by  importluva

I think it looks alright. I dont really see the point in making it though. Its SS counterpart isnt even close to being able to contend with the Neon SRT-4.

posted by  SlipKnoT

Rumor is that AEM is working on a V2 intake for it, and Greddy is working on an exhaust system. But Im not sure if thats true or not.

posted by  SlipKnoT

i can get a smaller pulley for my supercharger giving me more boost... but it's too new and im wathing to see what happens to other cars... not that i don't trust it but i don't want to mess with my warrenty so soon

I'm actually impressed with the cobalt. Any production 4cyl that produces 200/200 is alright with me. And believe me the after market for it will be just as big as the SRT-4.

Some of the Grand Prix 3800 vendors are already working on it:wink2:

posted by  TokyoJoe

The SS is great looking and performing car IMO. Wing is nice, ground fx are good, wheels are amazing, and performance is good. 205 horsepower 200 torque for the SS, for around 21 or 22 thousand dollars im not sure

posted by  newyorker

Yeah I'm pretty sure with around 500-1000$ in my car I'd dust that thing, if not stock. :laughing:

posted by  Pythias

You got a 5.0....that car has a 2.0 if im not mistaken...4cyl vs. 8cyl....only way he can beat you is if he ups the power, and gets some weight off.

I like the cobalt and im porbably going to trade my 2002 cavy in for one. its a hot little car and good on gas with a touch of performance. Great grocery getter and daily driver.

posted by  frizzal

its okay i wouldn't loose any sleep over it. im more concerned with DD ability. but its nice to have the power there when you need it.

also GM stage kits coming out soon, keep my warranty and get some more ponies out of my supercharger. :mrgreen:

So why imply that you CAN do it....surely that's irrelevent?

posted by  Cliffy

I think he was just implying since he's force fed (with a supercharger) and not N/A he has the extra torque (over similar size non force fed four bangers) to get up that hill with more ease.

205 torque still isn't that great....

posted by  Pythias

i've gone from a stop to moving up a hill, starting in 2nd gear. i didn't mean too... but once i started i was like "oh wait... oops", but kept it in 2nd because it was around a construction vehicle and i didn't want to go that fast anyway...

it wasn't the steepest of hills... maybe 15-20 degrees or so.

and i've got only 135lb-ft of torque... and i deffinately lack in low-end torque...

i need an ubercharger.

A very sexy car. I had the opportunity to test drive one, and I loved it. Definitely on my "Car to buy after college" list. :mrgreen:

posted by  adamsjr

thanks. yeah its not a bad car for its price range. i would recommend it.. although with every f/i sport compact car.. try not to buy used unless you know the owner.. becasue you know the previous owner beat on the car.. you can't help it :thumbs:

posted by  Euphoria Press

That article about sums it up, although I am interested to see how far some Cobalt SS's will go as far as power on the stock motor, I don't know much about it but would assume it can't handle much more than the power a Stock 05' Mustang Gt has.

posted by  Pythias

There was never a 4 cylinder Camaro, and certainly not a V4. Maybe you're thinking of the Fox Body Mustangs, not F-body Camaros.

Once again, Boobmba opens his mouth and inserts his foot. Did you forget about the 2.5 Iron Duke four cylinder installed in the early ('82-'85?) third generation F-bodies, or did you just shoot off your ignorant pie hole again without even knowing about them?
