Cons: Replacing factory stereo is pretty involved
Advice: Buy it. It has the same powertrain as the cobalt for much less.The suspension and handling was far better than that of any Honda that was 50% more and it had way more acceleration. I test drove a Honda Civic because car & driver gives them good reviews for some reason. The handling was terrible, the car was loud and had no acceleration. I also test drove a Hyundai Tiburon. That was slow and very loud. I recall 3700 RPM doing only 70 MPH in the 5 speed. The Toyota Matrix was loud, slow, expensive and it too had no acceleration.
Pros: fast car shuts up the cavi haters!
Cons: back seat room not to much of it and i really need it!
