Cobalt — i dont like that it has only two doors. The performance is good. Build quality is fine. The appearance is good,no dents or any scratches. The cost was really good we got it for $12,000 with 450 miles on it. Car is a lot of fun to drive and a good car to practice on.

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..... : /

My Car — Well its the prettiest and brightest yellow possible. Remote start, leather heated seats, 6 disc in dash cd player, came with a 10" sub, granted its not as fast as my brother and sister-in-law's 06 supercharged cobalt, I love it!
