i suggest investigating your spark plugs(maybe OEM(stock) if not already), spark plug wires, distributer cap, fuel filter. You could also be in need of an engine flush, or ignition cleaning depending on. Had the same problem with my cobalt 06 sedan, after all the above exceot dsitributer cap car now responds exceptionally better than before.
