I like to tell cobalt owners that they heve a rebodied Saturn. And I agreee that the outside was fixed. But i wonder why the dash design was not shared? It would have been enough difference to me to buy an ION over the Cobalt. Actually I bought the saturn anyway. Oh well, what is done, is done. I have no regrets.
