I hate them.....

Not really they just piss me off because they are so damn fast, and they always want to race me.

But go for it dude! fastest stock front wheel drive car in america right now.

i really like the car. the americans really pulled off creating a car of such category. chrisv wrote a lot of info on it a few weeks ago about just why its actually quite an awesome car (in details of course).

They are very impressive performance wise... but in the end it's still a Neon and I can never stoop to owning a Neon, no matter how many of the blow me away in traffic.

I love the Cobalt SS. I was able to drive one. fun little car. I'd still probably take my old Beretta GTZ over it, just because the styling was so much cooler, but it's long gone. What can ya do?

The new type-s is one of the most fun FWD cars I have ever driven. Handles almost as good as the mini cooper S, and is just so damn sexy.

Those little Mini Cooper S cars are some of the most under rated cars around. They have great handling and wonderful power. I would actually like to have one.

Which reminds me, I saw a guy on the internet who put a Honda b16 VTEC in a old one. It was turbo charged and making something like 300hp? The damn thing ran a 9 sec 1/4 mile!

Mini coopers make4 good track cars to. Theres a guy out here that drives a red mini and the only mods i have noticed on the car are some massive brembos, wheels tires and the exhaust doesant sound stock. Dont know what he did to the engine but out at the road course hes beating 1000cc race bikes by almost 2 seconds.

Im not a fan of the Cobalt SS. I drove one of my relatives, and it just feels like box on wheels. To much play in the steering and it just feels like that poor Ecotec is going to blow up at any second The poor thing sounds so strained

The Neon SRT-4 is a awesome car. Even if it is Mitsubishi engineered I would still take one. Theres nothing wrong with owning a Neon, except that they like to spit oil all over the road. The only time a Neon SRT-4 ISNT cool is when they beat you in a race But then again, what car IS cool as its beating your cars ass? I raced one in my Saturn SL2 but in the end it got me by about a car length.
