Default Cobalt, Ion vs Cavalier

Well is time to find another car, MY SL is about to die, 185000 miles so far, but I need something for the future.
I was thinking about a Cobalt or Ion and maybe a Cavalier.

I just found a Cobalt with 52000 miles for under $5500 and a Cavalier with the same mileage for $3500.

which one is the better car ? can you guys give me some opinions ?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default Re: Cobalt, Ion vs Cavalier

It depends on what year each car is.

I would buy the Cobalt no matter what if it's a 2007-2010. A Cobalt is a much better car in almost every regard than any Cavalier. I would only consider buying the Cavalier if it's a 2003-2005 in near showroom new condition, and the Cobalt is a 2005 or 2006.

2007 Chevy Equinox LT 170K miles
