Love This Car! — Great performance. Takes turns real well and brakes are sensitive. No repairs have been needed, but cloth interior can get dirty real easy. The cloth is real easy to clean though. Sporty exterior appearance looks real sleek.25 GPM, which is great with the gas prices. Love to drive it, real fun!

Cobalt Lt - Amazing Car For Sure — This car is the greatest thing ever to happen to me. I purchased this car after my old car kinda quit on me. I found this car on a Sunday browsing dealerships. It was a brand new 08 LT1 with cruise control and a few other options such as the rear spoiler. Too bad it didn't come with remote start or a sun roof. I debated between it and a dark red one at Johnny Londoff Chevy that had a body kit and exhaust on it. Even though the one with the body kit looked a bit cooler, I chose the silver LT. After my parents traded in their work van, the LT cost a little over 12 grand. I'm paying almost $208 a month for it. I got 0% financing for 60 months. I brought the car home on June 18, 2008. I absoultely love this car. Its very fun to drive and very nimble. For the 2.2, its a fast accerator and good at turns as well. Turning radius is awesome - I can turn it around on my driveway, which is a 3 car driveway. I plan on having a lot done to it, such as exhaust and intake.. and a LOT more. The gas milage too is awesome.. between 25 and 35. I would reccomend a Cobalt to anyone looking for a small car.

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

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!

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.
