Cobalt — Amazing car, well built, looks great. Drives smooth, and quietly. Great power, and with the turbo there is lots to spare. It can be a little pricey to own depending how hard you are driving it. Very fun to drive, and the race style seats are very comfortable. Overall a great car.

Compact — Really great gas mileage, little room for cargo, handling is good, small car that sits really low and not meant for a husband that is 6'4. Maintenance on car is really low. tires are pretty well needed every 2 years

Pros

There are quite a few benefits of driving a Chevy Cobalt.  I truly love the handling and drive of this car.  It's not branded as being super fast or super comfortable on long rides, but I beg to differ.  Great highway mileage (~33mpg), awesome sound system, reliable and affordable.  Great car.

Cons

Cargo space is somewhat limited.  Not much leg room in the back.  That's about it!

Great Commuter Car At A Bargain Price — My girlfriend and I own three cars: a Jeep, a truck, and this Cobalt. The oddest thing is that I feel most comfortable driving my Cobalt. Whether it's in snow, ice, rain, or sunshine I'll usually pick the Cobalt out of them all. The handling and acceleration are superb, despite it being a low-end model. There is plenty of bang for your buck. I've rarely felt unsure while driving this vehicle. The gas mileage is excellent, too. You're not going to get hybrid MPG, but it's in the low 30s. Sound quality on the inside is great. And to top it off, it has a sleek and smooth look to it. It's definitely a good-looking car.

Great Starter Car — In the two years I have owned it it’s never let me down. Pretty much I have only had to do scheduled maintenance on it. it saved me and my wife when our ford and jeep failed us. (my wife says the cobalt's here to save the day every time my jeep needed fixed)

Its red

Cons

Its a two door.

My Baby — I like my car, its dependable, the mileage isn't bad and its a very sport red :) My only real complaint would be that its a two door instead of four door. What I really like is that it feels like a sports car but isn't.

I dislike front wheel drive and the lack of power.

Reccommend For Young People And Commuters. — Performance - For a 4 cylinder vehicle this car is fun to drive. The acceleration is not the worst and the handling is great. This car is a good car for a young person learning to drive. Not to mention this car is very easy to parallel park.
