Never Ever Ever Buy One — I liked it while it worked. Have had nothing but problems with it the last couple of years. Its not worth the money put in to it to keep it running. Overheats, made with a few recalled parts, doesn't feel safe to drive five miles.

Pros

Comfy back seat, good on power, handles wonderfully, good mileage, and fun to drive :)

Cons

Small gas tank

Great Car :) — accelerates faster than expected and handles nicely. Both front and back seats are comfortable and give good support. Really easy to drive and see out of. It is pretty reliable and really fun to drive. It gets great gas mileage but has a very small gas tank. It is a good looking car, both inside and out. Overall it is a fantastic car :)

Cheap Work Car — Not a beauty however, won't be expensive to drive, and at the right price. 4dr 6 cyc automatic transmission, new brakes. AC does not blow cold air I am unsure it it has a leak or what, compressor does kick on.

Overall Good Car For The Money, But, Lots Of Electrical Problems With The Ignition And Radio — I bought this car with high mileage 90,000 and it actually had good power for having a small motor. It was really good on gasoline. It was comfortable. I also loved the flexible side mirrors. It was a great little car and it has a great engine, but, it did have its share of electrical problems. In the 2 years I had it I had to replace the ignition switch (around $700) and the brakes had to be replaced 2x. I also had to replace the line from the power steering. I finally traded it in when the ABS brake light kept coming on and the brakes were squeaking horribly and it needed 3 ignition coils.. Overall, being it had 120,000 on it when I traded it in I'd say it was a good car for me. It slept underneath the stars and it started up everyday. Though, I do think this model had way too many electrical problems and I've researched it and many others said the same. I'd recommend with reservations.

Good Car If You Can Get For The Right Price — Bought the car in September of 2010 had 153,000 miles. only $600 but i have almost another $4000 invested into it between the sound system and repairs. Performance is not to great, but it comes to be expected from a v6. The appearance could use some work inside and out. Driver seat is torn up from usage over 11 years. Paint is scratched up and has a few minor rust spots. Since I have added the sound system I love driving this car. If i didnt have it, the fun factor would drop to a 0.

It isn't my Chevy cobalt SS Supercharged that i want or 2010 Chevy Camaro

25

N/a — It's a good luxury vehicle, and since I have a baby daughter it works perfectly for now, gas mileage is good and when I don't have my daughter with me yes I do push it to the limit and I see what it can do and for a luxury based vehicle it aint bad at all. I'm very happy with it overall and would go back to choosing this vehicle if I ever needed a good vehicle that I trust, but for now I just want my Chevy Cobalt SS Supercharged that's all.
