Forum posts for Who wants to lease a Chevy Cobalt?

We're actually in the market for a vehicle in the next 5 months, but unfortunately a Cobalt isn't really a "family" vehicle. In fact, we have a friend with a kid who just bought one and I thought it was one of the most ridiculous decisions they have made.

Good luck to her though.

Just curious, why do you think that it's not a family vehicle?

It's basically just an updated Cavalier. I'd think that would be enough for a young kid. The back seat may not be huge, but I'd assume that it's a enough for a baby.

Also, I have a friend who wants to sell a 1996 Nissan 240RX, maybe that's more your speed.

Well, it's not so much that it couldn't accomodate a family, I just don't think it would fit ours. Because of the dog, mostly. We're not too keen on having the kid and the dog together in the back seat with us upfront, having no control over the licking or pulling or whatever. We want at least a hatch, but more likely a small SUV so that we can fit the dog and the stroller in the very back.

And our friend's Cobalt is a 2 door, that's why it's a terrible idea.

As for the Nissan, I don't know what that is, but I looked online a little bit and saw some references to drifting, which is something we are hoping to take up once the baby arrives, so it's a definite possibility.

Oh okay, all those reasons make sense.

I was joking about the Nissan.

Yes, it's for sale.

No, you don't want it with a family. It's essentially a sports car.

My mom has a Honda CRV that she seems to like alot.

I highly recommend drifting if a child or elderly person is in the back seat.

It is an enjoyable, completely safe technique allowing you to get home quicker and in a more intense fashion, giving you more leisure time with your loved ones.

As such, the Nissan 240RX is an ideal recreational family vehicle.

I believe there was a documentary movie released recently about this called The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
