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.

Pros

Great gas mileage; good-looking car; handles well

Cons

No automatic windows; cloth interior

35

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!
