Pros

Pretty quick. Better than most cars out there such as a Scion TC or a Civic.

Cons

Couldn't afford the insurance on an SS so I'm stuck without the turbo..... : /

Pros

Pretty much everything about the car is good.  The engine comes with more standard horse power than the SS which has a 2.0L engine.  Granted the SS has more standard horse power given the fact that it has a turbo.  Throwing a turbo on the 2.4L engine the Cobalt Sport has would make it significantly faster than the SS.

Cons

Doesn't come with a turbo.

Fun to drive, cute, good mileage

Cons

Cheap interior plastics!

Good Car To Have But Make Sure You Get At Least An Lt2 — This car is fun to drive and comes in awesome colors, mine is blue with a purple hue and a black interior! Although the car is cute, it is slow to accelerate and the interior is cheap plastics! I get 35mpg on the highway and 24mpg in the city but that is doing the speed limit or under. The car would be even better if it was a convertible! It is also very reliable!

Pros

Fun, easy on the wallet, great mpgs.  GET A MANUAL.

Cons

Cheapish dash.  Don't abuse it by punching buttons, one will probably fall out eventually.

25

Good — First of all, let it be known that I love my car. That being said, the worst thing about it is definitely the build quality of the dash and panels. The dash is mostly tough plastic, if I push firmly on a few places it will bend inwards and make a noise. The body panels are like most other cars, it feels like it can get dented pretty easily in some places (more the rear of the car) , and the spoiler feels like if I pulled hard enough it will just pop off the car. If I push on it it will rock/bend back and forth, though not too badly. With the bad stuff out of the way, we can move on to how fun this is to drive. Although it's a 4 cylinder, it still is pretty quick due to its low weight, and can accelerate respectably. Mine's also a manual transmission, another thing I love, which makes it even more fun to drive. Handling is pretty good, I love keeping it in a lower gear and going down twisty back roads, it can take turns pretty well (even at speed). For highway driving, it's still a good car, it gets 37mpg or more, doesn't shake at all at higher speeds, and doesn't rev too high in 5th (at 80mph in 5th gear, it's at 3000 rpm, redline is at 7000 if I remember correctly). Looks are all opinion, so I won't even bother telling you I like them. I've had the car for 3 years now, and the only maintenance problem it's had was a blown fuse which rendered the AC useless, but it was an easy fix. Overall I feel like this is a great car, especially for the $14,000ish base price, but too bad the horn is nothing close to masculine.

If You Want A Sporty Car, Good On Gas, That You Will Love And Your Friends Will Love, This Is It. — The Chevy Cobalt. Its shiney looks make it look expensive but really people buying this car brand new off the lot isnt worth it. Your better to go buy a used one of these for around 6-10 grand for a basic model and 16 grand at the most for a super charged one. At dealerships this car brand new sells for 21 grand when really you should only be paying 15 grand for it brand new for a base model. Other then the initial cost of the car it does save you money in your pocket when at the gas pumps. It was fuel meter telling you when its low on gas. Its cheap to fill up and doesn't gas munch. Low maintenance I have never had a mechanical problem with this car. i give it 5 stars for safety. It hugs the roads at high speeds, takes corners beautifully, its quiet, safe in winter to drive, always starts even when not plugged in for the night, it warms up fast,if you do get into a snow pile it usually can can its self out. It does get complemented everywhere it goes. Its a smooth quiet ride. Super fun to drive can give speed when needed and can go all day without a problem.

Good Price For The Power You Get. — This car has excellent acceleration, great handling and for the price per horse power it is a great deal. The front brakes are really good also, the seats offer good support, the car has good gas mileage and the maintenance is fair price.
