So After I sell my gas-guzzling SUV I will be in the market for one of these 2 cars. I thought about a Cobalt SS but it bores the heck out of me…it’s a fast rental car with fog lights, a big dumb wing, and two-tone seats. I like the aggressive front styling and the glove box/mini-fridge that the CSRT4 has but it appears to be depreciating at an astonishing rate…there are 08s that are still new and have no miles on lots that have sticker prices of over 27k that are being sold for around 18-19k. I would rather not be buried with a car that’s not worth jack squat after 2 yrs or so. I test drove both cars and I loved both. The CSRT4 interior was not nearly as impressive as the Speed3’s by a long shot but the shifter felt quite sloppy in the speed3. They are both very powerful from the factory and I’m not trying to create some 11 second track whore…just a few simple bolt ons and drag radials at the track. The problem with the CSRT4’s depreciation can be overlooked when I see the number of problems that the Speed3 appears to be having from the factory…between windshield rattles, turbo seals, motor mounts, boost spikes that throw rods etc. etc. Any advice/reasoning I should get a Speed3 over a CSRT4?
