    The acura dealership would not help me I walked around for 20 min looking at cars and went inside and shit and no one asked me if I wanted to take a test drive. I guess as a 20 year old student they assume I dont have the money for the car.

    Acura for the dependability, and the Type S has a little bit more power...

    However, the Cobalt SS is supercharged...

    Tough decision.

    according to road and track the cobalt SS wins. its faster, brakes better, handles better and is cheaper. however the RSX won almost all the comparrisons for fit and finish.

    kill yourself now before anyone else points out that you don't know shit.


    The Cobalt got great reviews in Road& Track as well as Car&Driver.

    R&T compared these 2 in their current issue.

    Acura is way nicer car, but the Cobalt may be quicker? Dunno the numbers on it.

    maybe you just went to a snobby dealership. i would have yelled "would anyone like to help me" really loud. and if they didn't think i had enough money to buy a fucking 23,000 dollar car i would tell them to DIAF.

    according to Road & Track it is the chevy by a hair


    I test drove the cobalt and it is no cavalier, it's not a bad car although the acura is more finess the cobalt has more grunt.

    Both are cars that'll hold up.. but I think I would go with the Acura on resale value alone. I tihnk the Cobalt SS will retain resale value, but not nearly as well as the Acura will. Also, which has a longer warranty? The Acura will not be cheap to get fixed out of pocket, and I'd be weary of repairs on a supercharged vehicle after it's warranty is up.
