Cobalt Life

This one's for you Chris.

I was thinking that maybe Andrew should start a Chevy "Cobalt Life" forum. Just like Ferrari Life, you wouldn't have to be an actual Cobalt owner, just a Cobalt enthusiast who appreciates the practicality, affordability and reliability of the Chevy Cobalt.

We could have a Tech section also:

Question - How do I change the oil in my Cobalt?

Answer - You take it down to Jiffy Lube and give them $20. 10 minutes later you are driving away with a new oil filter and oil and freshly vacuumed carpets. (They might of missed a few McDonald's fries under the seat but hey, what do you want for 20 bucks?)

So I would join the Cobalt Life forum but only you Chris would have the exalted title of "Owner".

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

That is great Pete. I would be the only one that could type in the owner section too ...sadly my oil changes cost $50 with regular oil. The only positive side is I now have over 18k on the clock and only have had 2 oil changes. Very affordable especially at this time, when I am virtually broke... I start school on the 5th and I have to pay for the semester the 4th. $3,500 in loans, $3,000 in cash(parents have graciously paid....until I pay them back) and that is with a $17k/year scholarship....My education is going to cost more than a F355.....way more. This is why the Cobalt is so great

Heck, for $20 the guys and gals at E-Z Lube are happy to see my thing. Of course, I talk to them for 20 - 30 minutes.

Bonzi!!!

Chris,

The money spend early in life repays greatly. Get smarter than the others. Then they will pay you for that fact. Ha-ha.

That's because it is worth more. You'll never lose your money on that. It will repay you many, many, many times over.

Someone once told me that is why divorce costs so much - because it's worth it.

Count me in too

Can we ask Andrew to start a forum for broken MG's too. Nearly every MG owner would be eligible to join as well

You obviously haven't been paying much attention to the 355 owners

I'd expect it to be a wash, but, the education appreciates better.

True true. By the time I graduate I am looking at least $200,000+ in debt... But it will be well worth the knowledge I will gain
