Bob has never been shy with the press, especially if he feels that a vehicle is unfairly reviewed. This time he takes on the Wall Street Journal's review of the Chevy Cobalt (what are they doing with a Cobalt anyway?). His biggest nitpick is WSJ's focusing on the Cobalt's rear drum brakes. Bob points out many media darlings like the Corolla, Camry, Accord and Civic come with standard rear drums on many trim levels. Argue with the right person and they'll tell you that drums do not deter stopping performance on smaller cars that are not motor-crossing.
