Chevy Cobalt — I bought this car in February 2010 and love this car. I have owned other cars but this car is the best by far. Although it doesn't have very many good storage for your sunglasses It is an ok car after all.

Its Got Its Nitche — Its a good commuter car. Perfect for everyday driving. Its a bit small and weak but it gets awesome gas millage. The looks are not bad for being what it is. Definitely good for general driving and it also handles pretty good in the winter.

Not Bad For 16g — Performance, very agile and responsive in the corners. 4 piston Brembos provide great stopping. The turbo spools and pulls the car to 60 in 5 seconds.. (not bad for front wheel drive).. short throw shifting is great.. i am never let down when i wanna go when i need to go.

Cobalt — I havent found much that I dont like about this car. The only thing is that it is completely manual. The locks, windows, everything in the car is manual. Besides that there isnt really anything I have found that I dont like yet.

I Like The Car. — well this car has nice interior and comfortable on the highway roadtrip. the acceleration is nice for a stock sedan. it cost around 15 grand new. this is a nice car to drive around everywhere. so this car is a nice car to start out with as a new driver.

2008 Cobalt Ss Clone — It is an ls with stock 150 hp but has new glass pack, cold air intake, and 2 computer chips making around 190 when turned up. goes very good, and is 5 speed, it looks good, and is relieable. i hate the grey interior but will live with it. 5.3 liters to 100 km on highway. it gets 800 km to a 45$ tank of gas if im not givin it all the time. It is a very fun car to drive and sounds good
