You are in the Chevrolet Cobalt
What is this discussion about?

I saw this in Motortrend magazine. There is basic information on GM Insider posted here and also Motortrend. The current Cobalt is a very good car but it can only get better.

GM Insider below:
Chevrolet Cobalt: For about a year now it has been rumored that the Cobalt would receive a MCE in 2008 to keep it up with the competition. We have now heard that the MCE has been cancelled. Instead, an all-new Cobalt is set to arrive in the 2010 model-year. This car will have been developed world-wide, and will be sold world-wide. Aside from offering regular sedan/coupe models, GM will also have a high-styled coupe that is unique to the Cobalt line. This car will be used as competition against the Scion tC and Civic Coupe.

It seems pretty obvious that the success of the Malibu would mean that other Chevy cars would get a version of its styling. The current Cobalt is refined and a decent performer. Chevy would do well to improve on this even more. I'm hoping for even more performance availability like an Evo/STI fighter. I would love to see an AWD and maybe a hatch or wagon version. My big concern is whether or not they keep the "baby vette" look of the coupe. I have one and I love that look.

Unfortunately, the Cobalt as with many other brands cars get the best trouble free models a few years after first production. The highly praised Honda Civic had a few problems at its highly publicized release. It takes the consumers to basically bench test them for the manufactures and to report/discover problems that can be addressed.
The next generation Cobalt will be out within 2-years and will share platforms with the Saturn Astra which is getting a lot of great press. I am sure the two door will continue in a sports car like appearance along with a possible hatchback like the Astra.

I agree with you about new designs. I would probably never buy the first year of a new car design because of those possible defects and also because of higher prices due to higher demand for a new model. I expect to have my car loan payed off in 2011 anyway so I will probably wait for good deals on remaining 2011's just like I did with my current car which, when I bought it, was a remaining 2007.
