Nice. How many miles? I washed mine today and it still looks new. 09/08 build with 92k miles. Aside from a wear hole in the driver's floor mat, the interior is still mint, too.

43,000 miles, and it still smells new. Only drive it about 4,000 miles a year or less the last few years. No winters, and not driven when rain is forecasted. Sadly resale on it isn't much, that's why I doubt I ever sell it. Still have fun it, and getting rarer by the day.

Is there a list of who is still the original owner of their Cobalt and still has it?
I wasn't always the driver but was always the original owner

Enkei wheels are really the best looking wheels on the Cobalt.

I'll see how mine is doing in 2019 before I make that jump for a pristine one. It's hard to accept paying $6k+ for one when I'm <$4k in on mine.

There was a tread on here about a year ago. Probably very few at this point. I'm the 2nd owner of mine, got it in early 12. Was owned by a girl before me who thought it was pretty... was all original when I got it.

Second owner of mine as well. Bought it with 15,000 miles on it in 2007. Was a great car for College. Glad it was just a base model because it got it's share of parking lot dings, had the passenger side window busted out to steal my gps unit, and even had a roommate back into it breaking the passenger side control arm because he snagged the wheel with his truck bumper.

Original owner of my ls (300mi) minus the used dealer getting it at auction from a gm dealer. On paper im the 3rd owner of my ss but its history is a little strange. I think mine may have been one of the testing vehicles based on the first owners use time/mileage and its has a pilot build code. Wish I could find out more about it.
