Pros

Cons

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

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

36 miles per gallon on highway, 30 mpg city

Cons

crappy rotors and brake pads

2008 Chevy Cobalt Lt Sedan 4dr — I bought it used with 29,110 miles in May 2009 and currently have 33,300 miles on it. After having it for about a month the rotors rusted and the brakes built up with junk so I had to have 2 rotors replaced and a brake pad replaced. At 32,500 when getting an oil change the air filter needed to be replaced and ever since the car performance has only gotten better. Whatever you do don't get the LS model, get the LT like I have because LS doesn't have cruise, power locks, car alarm, and plus the spoiler helps a lot when its windy out.

Pros

gas mileage, size.

Cons

had electric wiring problems at first, got them fixed though

45

It Works For Me And I Love It — Acceleration is what I want with the manual transmission, build quality is pretty good, a few plastic parts make it less appealing to some but it doesn't bother me, gets great gas mileage (I can average around 38 easily). Lots of fun to drive, but that might not be the car so much as my personality.

powerful engine for its size

Cons

fuel-hungry, possible reliability issues

Cobalt — Not the best of cars, there are many better than it in its class. For its size, it guzzles gas. The particular car had 8k of mileage on it and it already had squeaky suspension. Luckily, it was just a rental.

Pros

gas mileage and cost

Cons

cheap plastic interior

45

Love It — For the price, the Cobalt is definately work it, gas mileage is great and i've only had the car in the shop once. The one thing I had to get fixed is third and fourth gear, it liked to grind. The acceleration isn't the quickest, unless you want it to be, it handles wonderfully. I love my car, I love to drive it and and it's a great cruising car.

I Really Like Driving It But Like I Said I Just Wish It Had More Horsepower And Speed. — I love the car it has treated me very well so far but i just wish it had more horse power would be nice so if you are going to get a car like this you should get the SS which has alot more horses and still gets great Gas milege GO AMERICAN.

Milage

Cons

horsepower

I Love It — I love how smooth the ride is, but the horse power is really lacking. The gas milage is awesome. It cost 10,000 to buy(got it slightly used). The interior is just big enough for me. Its bigger than a Toyotas.
