I bought my mom a cobalt sedan in January before the XFE was available. I like it, so my next ride might just be a manual cobalt sedan XFE. Sadly, I read that the sedan will only be offered in manual until the end of the 2008 run of vehicles. Not sure why they are doing that, I can't see the sedan having any more problems with the manual than the coupes.
So that means if I want one I have to buy it in the next few months or hope to find a used one later on.
