Pros

GREAT gas mileage and sharp looking car.  Has good acceleration for 4cylinder.  Runs smooth and very little noise.  Seats are comfortable and a fun small car to drive.

Cons

Not good space for a large guy.

Great Gas Mileage And Sharp Looking Car! — What drew me to this car was the sharp look and great red color. The gas mileage is wonderful and the car is really fun to drive. It handles very well and I always felt like the car was solid and safe to drive. The car has only needed general maintenance and has been very economical to own. I did have both recalls taken care of and haven't had any issues with the car at all. Would recommend this car to a relative or friend.

Don't Like It — This car saves gas and is cheap but the maintenance on this vehicle seems to be on a constant basis. I have had several issues with this vehicle but does save on gas but I'm sure I would have better luck with a similar car in its category.

poorly built, a lot of nickel and dime problems

Meh... — I had to get a car since my previous one had "blown up" and this was in my price range at the time. I have had a lot of nickel and dime issues with it since. The drivers side door handle is broken and the replacement cable is not available by itself. I have to pay for an entire assembly mechanism that costs more alone, than the whole door would at a salvage yard! Then there is the whole issue of the ignition which one can read about or hear about on any news program right now. Bottom line is I would not recommend this car to a friend.

Pros

Great gas mileage, great coupe appearance,

Cons

Trunk opening is not wide enough to fit things that do fit in the space of the trunk. Like Coolers, guitar amps, etc.
Given I like two door cars, if you have people that ride with you and you have to put them in the backseat, it gets pretty cramped.

It Was Alright — Great gas mileage, but has a small trunk opening, I think Chevy should of designed the opening to be wider/bigger to fits things better then trying to put them in your back seat. You could fit the cooler in the trunk, but you couldn't put it through the opening. When I first bought brand new, it seemed to be a good car, but when time goes by and you notice things with it that are pet peeves. Given it had recalls and I had issues with the fuel, got the fuel pump replaced for free, but at the end that tank was cracked and Chevy wanted to charge a $1000 to put a new one in. That should of been a recall as well, because I heard a lot about people getting the same issues I had with it. I ended up getting a tank from a Cobalt in the junk yard for $80 and I ended up putting it in myself. This car is alright, it has 181000 miles on it, I haven't replaced the the engine, tranny or the clutch yet. But it has been through abuse, and I been taking care of it. I would give this car a "alright" :)

I Love My Cobalt :)) — this was my first brand new vehicle, I think I made a good choice, as far as entry level cars go, I think the cobalt is a good one, it gets great fuel mileage, although I have had quite a few suspension problems, I have no major complaints about the car.

Pros

This car is fun to drive and very sporty. It gets the best gas mileage from any car I've driven, which is especially important these days. It handles relatively well, and the four cylinder engine performs pretty well. It also has a surprising amount of trunk space.

Cons

This not a family car by any means. The back seats are functional, but, like most sports cars, they are not the most comfortable.

Sporty Gas Saver With Low Mileage. — People notice when you are driving the Cobalt 2 Door Coupe. It has the look and feel of a sports car without the price of a sports car. It is fun to drive, and it gets awesome gas mileage. The interior is pretty quiet, and the seats are comfortable. The car performs pretty well for a four cylinder.

Reliable — This car it's a LS model and it does not have a cruise control. It drives good that's the car my wife drives for in city driving because She fills the car is very reliable. I recommend this car but I would make sure it has a cruise control next time.

Price-per-Fun factor is off the charts! Corvette fun for Cobalt price.

Cons

it's hard to fault this car...

Ssupercharged! — 205hp from a 2.0L supercharged engine in a car that weights under 2900lbs is just sweet! And from the dyno's I've seen, all 205hp are at the wheels. not to mention I average 29mpg, country back-roads driving mostly. The handling is great, I'll chicken out before I ever get to it's limits. Breaking good too, but they heat up quick, then again I have pretty cheap pads on it. The 5spd transmission is a complete joy to shift, in fact everything about driving this car is nothing but rewarding. I love it!

Awesome — For a 2.2l four cylinder 148hp car this thing rocks. Most cars with 200hp or even more can beat it if you can drive it well. Launch is great, acceleration is great, braking is ok, handling is awesome. Stylish and fun to drive awesome car
